La Plume Guest House, Oudtshoorn

Mid-range - ££


The La Plume Boutique Guest House pays homage to Oudtshoorn’s long history of ostrich farming and offers a taste of the luxury that this industry brought to the area. This 20-roomed hotel is surrounded by the Swartberg Mountains and the Olifants River Valley and is in a great spot for travellers to explore the highlights of Oudtshoorn, including the Cango Caves.

The entire hotel has an old-world charm and sense of nostalgia that can’t be beaten. There are six types of room you can choose from in this guest house, including a cottage or a private villa. This means you’re bound to have a holiday that suits your preferences. All the rooms are decorated in warm reds and browns, which give them a cosy but luxurious feel.


A working ostrich, alfalfa and cattle farm might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of luxury, but the La Plume Guest House defies expectations and offers an incredible experience for all of its visitors.

The hotel puts on a few activities for visitors; go bird watching, hire bicycles or hike through the hills surrounding La Plume; you’ll have a great adventure. The owner also gives tours of the farm. Make sure you put this on your itinerary as it’s a great way to learn more about the area’s history.

Take a dip in the refreshing swimming pool; it’s great after a long day of exploring the Oudtshoorn region.
