Lumley's hosted my 21st Birthday Party where 80 family members and friends enjoyed top class food and decor, excellent hospitality and service and a night full of love, laughs and dance. Will definitely recommend this place for a formal party. There was enough room for the dinner at tables but also for drinks and dancing afterwards.

Lumley's place is a place tucked away in Pniel, not the usual place anyone would venture to to look for a B&B. However, it is sufficiently accessible to Franschhoek and Stellenbosch to use as base to rest the body and mind whilst touring the region. Benita and family were awesome in taking care of our needs. We had 2 really... More
