Stayed in this pretty guest house for a night. Upon arrival, the staff warmly welcomed us and showed us to our room. It was so pretty! The view was great. We had a 3 course dinner at the guest house that night and the ostrich meat was yummy. Service was good and the portion was generous. Book early to avoid... More

I stayed at La Plume on the first night of my Garden Route tour. It is gorgeous and the staff all most welcoming. Attention to detail is impressive. Plus lovely little touches such as a welcoming drink on arrival and free treats in your room. I will let my photos describe my experience. Dining in is a must. The restaurant... More

As a last minute decision, my wife and I decided to book an overnight stay in the Oudtshoorn area on our way from Knysna to Cape Town on Route 62. La plume was an excellent choice and earn every bit of their 4 stars plus some. We were greeted and shown our accommodation by Lena, super-efficient and friendly. To our... More

South Africa - and the likes of La Plume - has re-defined the term "guest house" for us. The moment we walked into our huge, beautifully decorated, antique-style suite, we felt we were in a top-notch 5-star hotel that might have been in any city in Europe or the USA. Exquisite detail, a deep, free-standing bath, a decanter of complimentary... More

The Plum is a working ostriche farm and while staying there you really get the farm feeling. The rooms are extremely cosy - old fashioned but with so many lovely details and just the perfect style for a place like that. If you sit outside on the veranda overlooking the valley, you just do not wanna leave anymore. Very nice... More

Arrived slightly concerned as to what we'd find. What we found was a beautifully appointed guest house. Our room was stunning, hard to describe, but a mix of the old and the new. Likewise the enormous bathroom with an old fashioned roll top bath, and a splendid modern walk in shower. Grounds well cared for and the common parts similarly... More

If you are visiting Oudtshoorn, La Plume Guest House is a good option to stay. You can see the Ostrich, you can make a tour on the farm and you can also book other various trips (we did an Meekrat-Safari, which was wonderful). The dinner-option, which be paid extra for, was really good (we took the Ostrich-Steak).

What a wonderful stay in the most beautiful rooms with spectacular views! The staff was so friendly and helpful! I had the best ostrich fillet! La Plume is very close to Oudtshoorn. Wonderful informative ostrich tours and also a meerkat colony on the farm. A true haven!
