We stayed 2 nights in the new self catering cottage across the road. Nice bathrooms with Large, comfortable beds, with good linen. Good value- however, the lounge chairs needs to be replaced. Breakfast was very good.

The room that we had was fabulous, large and spacious and with a superb view over the countryside.The bathroom was massive with a great stand alone bath. There is a decent large swimming pool and the farm tour is definitely a "must do" activity.

We recently had the very good fortune to spend three nights at this wonderful guest house. Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome and were then shown to our luxurious and spacious accommodation. The guest house, once the family home of a local ostrich farmer was very tastefully furnished and our every need was catered for. All the staff... More

We were completely blown away by the accommodation we were given. It was billed as a superior suite but I can honestly say it was the largest and most luxurious room we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail was astonishing, with antique furnishings, ornaments and candles. The only downside was the air conditioning unit which was positioned above... More

La Plume Guest House in Oudtshoorn is one of those gems which everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime! The historial farm with the original and authentic furnishings; the beautifully maintained gardens and surroundings, the hands-on, personal yet extremely professional service and management - this is a guesthouse not to be missed! Delicious food - the ostrich fillet... More

From the moment we arrived to the (sad) moment we left we loved every minute. We stayed in the villa opposite the main guest house and it is very well equipped, very calm & has the added attraction of the baby ostriches running around in front of the terrace. The food is excellent and the staff very attentive. A special... More

Had two nights staying at La Plume recently. Wonderful room with antique furniture, double sink incorporated into a side board and roll top bath (Silver Floss)! Really quirky antique/Victoriana furnishings throughout. It is on a working Ostrich farm and we had a farm tour with the owner. All the rooms are named after types of Ostrich plumes and the house...

Received a warm welcome with a glass of chilled white wine and nibbles taken on the verandah overlooking the lovely countryside. We stayed in Bellies room, a huge room with antique furniture, comfortable chairs, huge comfortable bed and a Victorian bathroom with good quality toiletries, bathrobes and a device over the bath to hold your book or magazine.
