My husband and I stayed at this lovely little hotel in Franschoek for 4 days as part of a wedding party. The Dutch owners could not have been more helpful in every way and we all felt very welcome. The rooms were well equipped with all ameneties and although we ate out on most evenings the breakfast was excellent. It... More

I unreservedly recommend Plumwood Inn. The Inn is within walking distance of the town centre and a stroll back to the Inn after a quality dining experience rounds off a pleasant evening! The quality of the room was superb with every facility one could wish for. The breakfast was absolutely brilliant, with much appreciated options for the health conscious. The... More

Lovely hospitality advice on local attractions and restaurants which started even before we arrived as Christopher anticipated our needs. Great location only two blocks back from Main Street to walk safely and easily to restaurants. Beautiful grounds modern spacious rooms. Yummy breakfast in lovely garden pool setting Tx for wonderful stay.

After backpacking in Africa for 5 weeks I was really looking forward to a couple of nights of luxury. Plumwood Inn didn't disappoint. Roel, Lucienne and Chris create a warm, welcoming environment and are eager to please. Their wine and restaurant recommendations were helpful. The breakfast spread of fruits, yoghurts, cheese, meats and cooked breakfast made to order, was delicious.... More

The Plumwood Inn is in a perfect location very near the heart of Franschhoek and all the restaurants, Bars, Shops and sites of this lovely town. If that wasn't a good reason to stay here then the quality of the rooms, facilities and the breakfast along with the charming hosts and staff will certainly make up your minds. We ate... More

Really enjoyed our trip here. We stayed here for 2 nights this month. Christopher was extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome on arrival and the owners were also very friendly each morning for breakfast.The room and bathroom were immaculate and very comfortable. There is a pool, however we did not stay during the day. Highly recommend this accommodation.

Lovely view from the balcony. The staff are efficient and friendly and the owners hands on. The location is perfect. Not a single complaint from us and would... More

I had an upstairs room at this inn with a lovely view of the mountains and I stayed for two days and then moved to Stellenbosch. Mistake #1, stay in Franschhoek, it's prettier and safer. There's also more to do at night and you can actually walk in this town, which is so refreshing. So, things to love about the... More

The front entrance does not do justice to the rest of the property. We were on the special where you get upgraded to a superior room and found the whole experience really super. The view of the mountains from our balcony was spectacular. The room was spacious with all amenities. The bathroom was delightful and very well thought out. The... More
