We spend one night at la Plume Guest House in June 2011 and where told that we would have to taste their ostrich steak which they prepare for dinner. The dinner was simply fabulous and very romantic ! Don't miss it !

The staff was really friendly and our bedroom was warmly decorated with antique furniture which created a really romantic location. Breakfast was also a treat and it was hard to leave la Plume as we would have liked to stay a little longer in this beautiful romantic small Guest House.

They also have a pool but as we visited la Plume during the winter month and arrived only a few hours before sunset we didn't have the time go for a swim.

We will definitely return to La Plume...

La Plume is an elegant Guest House where you are always guaranteed a memorable stay. I have visited many times and always look forward to returning. Exquisitely furnished rooms, excellent food and very helpful and welcoming staff. I highly recommend this establishment.

This guesthouse is situated on a farm and is a fair distance from the town of Oudtshoorn, but well worth the extra distance.
Old fashioned decor of yesteryear with modern amenities make it a fabulous place to stay.
The friendly staff will welcome you on arrival and you will be helped with your luggage. Dinner is an experience as you will get to taste Ostich which Oudtshoorn is famous for.
Breakfast in the morning is standard
This guesthouse is ideally situated as a base while exploring the area.

We arrived here after a five hour drive from Hermanus. We were greeted by a lady I think called Anli, no questions as to how we were etc, before my new husband was even put of the car she wanted to know if we wanted dinner. We had our choices for meat before we were even inside the building and then even when we were shown to our room it was checking on what time we wanted breakfast. Fist impressions are everything and this was probably the worst one we had on six different stays in South Africa. However despite this, the views were amazing, the service at dinner and breakfast was good and we absolutely loved our room. If your in Oudtshoorn this is a good stay overall.

Dear Chrissy220786

My apologies for the bumpy start to your visit - I'm just very glad that it all turned out okay, because you seem to have had a nice stay at La Plume in the end.

I just need to explain why your welcome was a bit rushed: Our check in time is BEFORE 17h30 in the afternoon. We then invite our guests over to the veranda for a welcome drink. While they are enjoying their drinks (and the view!) we make all the necessary arrangements (dinner, breakfast time, etc.) with them. Our dinners are served by prior arrangement only and dinner starts at 19h00. And this is where the bumpy ride started....

You only arrived here after seven, so all our guests were already seated in the dining room, waiting to be served by, among others, Anli. That is the reason why she felt rushed to get you checked in as quickly as possible! Despite the fact that you did not reserve your dinner as requested, she still offered you dinner and now knowing that the other guests were waiting on her return, i think you understand better why she had to get your order directly. To be fair, this is NOT how we want to welcome guests at La Plume, but the alternative would have meant that we would have been sitting with a lot of unhappy guests in the dining room if she had taken her time (the way we usually do!!). I trust you now have a better understanding of why your welcome was such a rushed affair!!

I think you should visit us again on your second honeymoon trip!! Arrive earlier, sit on the veranda with a chilled glass of white wine and watch the sun set over the Olifants River Valley... Less rushed, more RELAXED - I'm sure you'll love it!!

And yes, we do remember you!! But since we are not allowed to actually address our former guests by name in our responses, all I can say is you're the VERY beautiful lady with the long dark hair!!! (See? We DO remember you!!!)

Kindest regards
Corlu

We have often been using La Plume, mainly for visitors from Germany and they are always awe-struck: the first view of the lodge, the rooms, the view, the food, the friendliness and attention of the staff members - everything adds to a wonderful experience. Well done to Lena and her staff - you cannot go wrong with a visit to La Plume!
