This is a very nice B&B with a great location. We had one of their a bit more expensive rooms which was lovely with an amazing bathroom. Very nice hosts, excellent breakfast. What disappointed a bit was the swimming pool. One of the pools is tiny and has no beds next to it. The other pool is also relatively small... More

Four of us stayed for three nights. Two streets back from the main drive through Franschhoek so everything is on your doorstep. The shops, bars and restaurants are two minutes away and the Wine Train Depot five minutes away. Yet no noise in this little bit of heaven. Different room types to meet different peoples needs, we stayed in a... More

We had the pleasure of staying in the Plumwood Inn over four nights. The accommodation was excellent, clean and modern with all the right facilities and superb customer friendly staff. Breakfast was amazing for the amount we paid and the extra little tips of information really helped cement our plans. Thank you. I personally liked the facilities, staff and honesty... More

Unfortunately the more positive reviews I leave the harder it is to book in again. Wonderful location, genial hosts, lovely staff who keep the place spotless, great size pool - long enough to get a good workout in. Walking distance to everywhere and safe and secure. Best fruit salad with breakfast of anywhere I can remember - never bulked out... More

Plumwood Inn is one of a kind! It's all you can ask for - and it's even located in Franschhoek! Some details: Room #7 You have access to safe, European power plugs, good hairdryer, TV (didn't test) and plenty of space. The covered balcony is big and has a spectacular view. The "mini bar" is replaced by extensive self service... More

I stayed here for four nights with my wife while on honeymoon. We both loved our stay - it was maybe our favourite guesthouse from a month long trip to South Africa. We stayed in an upstairs room in the new villa. It is worth requesting one of the four upstairs rooms for better views on the balconies and for... More

We recently stayed at Plumwood Inn for 2 nights and the hospitality was among the best we received anywhere in our travels to 50+ countries. The rooms are big and spotless, and the balconies look out onto rolling vineyards--our room definitely exceeded our expectations given the price! Plumwood definitely is definitely a quintessential wine country inn and the ideal location... More

Wonderful room, spacious and a real feel of luxury. A warm welcome from the hosts who were always around if you needed them. Great breakfast too. Easy walk onto the main street. Can't fault our stay at all - perfect for a romantic trip to the winelands.

Our Second time visiting Plumwood Inn. Well appointed rooms, great bathroom, full power shower and walking distance to most restaurants. The Poached eggs at breakfast are to die for as is the buffet, fruit etc
