We planned our trip to the Garden Route and Karoo around a previous 5* review of this place. Checked in and immediately checked out. The place appears to be under some new form of management, everything was just clinical, a bit less of a shine than we remember back in 2008. The room was apparently deluxe but less than half...

Dear loveknot As mentioned you were a guest at La Plume in 2008 (Although we could not find your 5* review of our property as mentioned in this review...). The owners and management are still the same, but a lot of things have indeed changed at La Plume Guest House since 2008- all for the better, I believe! We have... More

After a long trip we arrived at La Plume to spend Christmas Eve there. It was a wonderful stay and we really enjoyed everything. The rooms were very clean and the dinner was delicious. We had a very warm welcome, a relaxing swim in the pool and felt very comfortable during our stay. Thank you!

We stayed couple nights here and actually were upgraded to their honeymoon suite which was absolutely beautiful. Breakfasts were good with different choices - first night we also had dinner which was very nice. Last day before we left we did the tour of the farm and would recommend this as it gives good insight into the ostrich farming and... More

La Plume is a working ostrich farm. It provides the warmth of staying with the family, combined with real luxury. Located a few kilometers from Oudtshoorn, on a small hill, with nice views from the verandah. We stayed for two nights. Rooms are very comfortable, decorated with extreme eye for detail. A little flower here, a special touch there. Even... More

This is such a perfect little place - so peaceful, quiet with amazing views. Breakfast and Dinner was lovely as were the staff and host. Nice to be slightly outside of Oudtshoorn - it's not a particularly pretty town! Just one thing and I am not going to mark them down but they may want to consider in the future... More

We stayed in this beautiful B&B as part of our garden route tour. What a surprise. We went back in time and were given the honeymoon suite. Wonderfully spacious room and what a bathroom.

Wendy066 Dear Wendy066 Thank you so much for the positive review - much appreciated. My apologies for the WiFi inside the main building - on the plus side: now guests can't stay glued to their phones and iPads during dinner and they have to talk to each other!! ;-) Kindest regards Corlu More

What a fabulous place. the food is great - do try the Ostrich. The views are spectacular. The staff could not do enough to help. A really memorable stay. There is plenty to see from La Plume - we visit an Ostrich Farm nearby and the town of Oudtshoorn is very close.

Beautiful accommodation with every room being unique. Great service and very happy with the meals. I stay there for business but it always ends up being a pleasure stay. Get there early so that you can enjoy a welcome drink on the veranda.
