Plumwood is located in a very convenient spot just off Franchhoek's main street. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful. The house itself is very pretty, with great simple facilities and a 'make yourself at home' vibe. Our room was at the top of a set of uneven stairs, perhaps not safe for older guests, and on first...

Conveniently located within walking distance to the main street of Franschhoek, this guest house is a winner. Our room was quite large, if somewhat spartan, but it had a large deck overlooking the pool and mountains that was absolutely lovely. The bathroom products were wonderful - it was nice to have solid soap! Also nice to be able to walk...

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at the lovely Plumwood Inn. Our room was spacious, with a balcony over the pool. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Most of all, we enjoyed the location of the Inn, as we could park our car and walk in 3 minutes from the Inn to the main street of Franschhoek. A great place...

Very large and stylishly decorated. Everything had been thought of in the bathroom from a bath, huge shower, two basins a bidet and loo. The bedroom had a six foot bed, a...

We enjoyed 6 nights here in a standard room which although was on the small side was still very well appointed and spotlessly clean as was the bathroom which was a delight. Very modern, great shower and all the facilities you could wish for. Breakfast was beautifully presented and Lucienne and Roel were on hand to satisfy every whim and...

Had a fabulous stay here. Roel and Lucienne are brilliant hosts nothing is too much trouble. Our room was spotless and well thought out. The location is great, you can walk to the Main Street in a few minutes and very easy to get to other places too. Our stay was the perfect answer to cold grey winters. Looking forward...

We stayed for 5 nights at Plumwood Inn. Plumwood Inn has 11 rooms and I had chosen room 3 for us, which was on the upper floor with uninterrupted views over the vineyards to the mountains beyond. The room was very large and had large patio doors which opened on to the terrace affording great view whilst sitting up in...

From the moment you arrive they take care of you in every way. From drinks to restaurant and wine farm bookings down to laundry, it's all taken care of. Rooms, amenities, breakfast all outstanding. Best place we have ever stayed in South Africa and we would rank it at the top of all hotels we have ever stayed in. So...
