La Plume is not a Hotel, Guest House or B+B it is a OVERNIGHT EXPERIENCE. After a long days drive you arrive at this piece of Paradise to be greeted by wonderful professional friendly staff that check you in, take you to your room with the luggage following on your heels and when they open the door of your mansion what a surprise, the beautiful old anteeks combined with lovely linen.
A bathroom the size of a house, air con, rosepebels in the toilet and shower and many more.After you checked inn they invite you to a WELCOME DINK of your choice at no extra cost on your bill.
That night you go for dinner in the old farm house, what an experience. It is a set menu with a choice of Karoo Lamb, Ostrich steak or Chicken.
Now this is where the problem starts and the answer is, stay for two nights, one night ostrich and the next evening Karoo Lamb and then make sure you have a late Breakfast because this is just as good. I have never heard of any of my tourist complaining about any thing at La Plume but never want to leave the next day.
