“Don't let the journey get you down...it's worth it!”
Reviewed 13 November 2006

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.

  • Liked — The rooms and the food....
  • Disliked — Amount of insects - it's close to a farm.
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask for one of the rooms away from the main reception

This place is magical, from the free drink on arrival to the candles and soaps filling the bathroom, this place is great. Hard to find but once there you do not want to leave. Each room designed with antique furniture and the staff is incredible, there is no where else better in Outdshoon then Le Plume, they will do anything to make you visit special!

Stayed June 2006
