We stayed two nights and wish we stayed longer. We had a standard room and it still felt like luxuary - big bed, nice linen and a fantastic large bathroom. The breakfasts are fantastic with everything you could want. What really sets the place apart is the service. The owners are so lovely, without being intrusive. The staff were also... More

Nice stay in Franschhoek. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. Nice swimmingpool. We rented 2 mountainbikes for a day and cycled accros the wineries. Great place to stay for a few days. Franschhoek is a lovely place with top rated restaurants.

This is an excellent place to stay in Franschhoek. Beautiful room, huge bathroom and large comfortable bed. There are lovely gardens and two swimming pools. Excellent breakfast and friendly but not obtrusive hosts. Would definitely stay again.

I really don't know why I write reviews for Plumwood as it just makes it harder to visit. This is undoubtedly the best guest house in Franschoek. We visit each year and the service and accommodation remain as good as always. The garden, pools(two), superb rooms and the excellent staff all combine to make this the first choice in Franschoek....

Sufficient to say, we are annual Plumwood regulars, as are most of the guests we meet here each year. We like the service, ambience, attention to detail and commitment of Lucienne and Roal, the hosts at this excellent guest house. Plumwood is the ideal location to experience Franschhoek from, as most of the restaurants are a short stroll away. A... More

Plumwood Inn is set back a few roads from the main street. This is perfectly located away from the busy main street and ensures that this hotel is nice and quiet. The main street (shops and restaurants) are only 5 mins walk away. We found this walk very safe to do, so no worries there. Our room was on the... More

An oasis in a quiet location but scarcely a couple of minutes walk from the Main Street. Lovely well tended gardens, beautifully appointed bedrooms. Lovely, well-equipped bathroom with upmarket toiletries. Excellent breakfast, al fresco if you want. Roel and Lucienne cannot do enough to be helpful with recommendations about, and organisation of, activities,trips, restaurants etc. All in all an outstanding... More

I think if there was one place I would return to for their breakfast it would be here !! We travelled through South Africa November 2014 and stayed at many B&B's. None quite with a breakfast that was this amazing.... The hosts were lovely, accommodation was great- very clean with a great bathroom and powerful shower !! I judge a... More

Friends recommended that we stay with Roel and his charming wife Lucienne in franschhoek, an excellent choice. We had room 5 upstairs in the older part of their accommodation, more traditional and quiet. Roel was good enough to recommend and book a couple of good restaurants in the town but truth to tell we preferred their breakfasts,sitting on the porch... More
