A comfortable and cosy inn in the heart of Franschoek. Lovely views of the mountains from the patio. Inn host was attentive to all our needs and the included breakfast was fresh and nicely prepared. A perfect location to the explore the wine country.

We decided on the spur of the moment to go away for the weekend. It was my husband's birthday the next day and I wanted to make it special for him. I immediately went on to Tripadvisor because I trust their reviews, when I came across Plumwood Inn. Everyone gave such great reviews of this place, we just knew that... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Plumwood Inn this past June and were so happy we found this B&B. Since it was off-season, our room was a good value. It comes with a fully secure parking spot and a hearty breakfast. The pool and garden would be really nice to join in the sunny season. The rooms have a modern... More

We stayed 4 nights in April. Weather was extremely hot so we made good use of the lovely pool. Air con and wifi worked very well and it's incredibly comfortable and we had a beautiful view from the balcony of our room. Breakfast was varied and delicious and the owners very helpful. We'd go back.

I really liked the Plumwood Inn. It was, in fact, the nicest place we stayed in South Africa. The rooms are warm and inviting, and spotlessly clean. The bathroom had a large bath and separate shower. The location is great for exploring Franschhoek. The gardens are beautiful. The breakfast was great. The owners were helpful in providing restaurant recommendations and... More

This gem of an inn deserves all the praise it gets. Lucienne, Christopher and Paul could not do enough for us, they helped us with dinner reservations, a wine tour and just general information about the area. The breakfast was lovely with a choice of hot and cold foods. We were in the main house in the standard room which... More
