A beautiful hotel in Franschhoek, in a great location within a couple of minutes walk of lots of great restaurants and round the corner from the tasting room, but on a quiet street. The hotel is very nicely furnished, with a homey feel. There are comfortable communal lounge areas and a lovely breakfast room with a terrace overlooking one of...

The whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. Friendly hosts, great location, fantastic rooms. Would recommend to everyone going to Franschhoek. Breakfasts are immense and everything is within walking distance of the house. Very secure and fantastic view from our balcony.

Plumwood Inn - I love you! The service at this inn was amazing - Cris, the property manager, answered so many of my questions about everything! I felt like he was really looking out for me :) The place is just so charming and so well located (right off the main strip but hidden in the neighborhood) and close to...

Beautiful and well-maintained place. Great, friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone, even solo travelers. A quiet and peaceful atmosphere surrounds the place, and you can enjoy a glass of wine sitting out by the pool. Plumwood is located just a couple of blocks away from the main street in Franschhoek, behind the public library.

Roel and Lucienne are excellent hosts. The attention to detail is like nothing I've seen in a guest house. Great location, combined with superb restaurant recommendations, we hope to return one day. It's easy to see why others do

Found this place on tripadvisor, and so happy that we did! The room was really nice, with an amazing bed and an incredible bathroom. The whole area is so nice and beautiful, with two pools and lots of flowers and trees. Even though there are other people, you do not feel that there are others, due to a lot of...

We booked in here for one night with another couple (who were staying for 3 nights). The customer service is extremely personable from check in to check out. The rooms are very modern and ours had an adjoining balcony with our friends which was a lovely place to enjoy sundowners. If we were travelling on our own, it might be...

The owners were very friendly and really made us feel at home. Our room was beautiful and the bathroom spotless. Proximity to the centre of Franschhoek made it very easy to access restaurants and walking distance to the main road. Altogether a lovely experience and a very relaxing place.

We stumbled upon the Plumwood Inn a few years ago and are so pleased that we did. It is situated parallell to the main road in tiny central Franschhoek and within walking distance of many fine restaurants. The setting is very peaceful and quiet. Parking is secure. Lucienne and Ruell visited South Africa a few years ago, fell in love...
