We drove from Hermanus to get here, and the main road to Oudtshoorn is a bit uninteresting to say the least. When we saw the signs to La Plume, we realised it was some way out of town and the road seemed to be taking us into the middle of nowhere. However, when we arrived, it was like an oasis in the desert....lovely grounds, swimming pool, fantastic room with big bathroom and private terrace, and a very welcoming drink on arivall from really friendly staff. We quite soon realised that we would have to eat there to save driving into town, but this was no problem as the food was really first class and good value.
Very close to an ostrich farm, which is good for a couple of hours.
