This was our second visit to Plumwood Inn and every bit as memorable as our first. The hosts, Ruul and Lucienne work very hard to make sure everybody is well looked after. After a good night's sleep in the comfortable rooms, breakfast is served 'al fresco' with a great choice of fruit, cereals, cold meats as well as more substantial... More

We visited for the second time in January 2015. Our stay was outstanding. Roel and Lucienne are the ultimate hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent and the room was very clean. We felt relaxed as soon as we arrived and have booked again for next year. If you can get a room here-go you will... More

The Best There Is! The four of us checked in at the Plumwood Inn on January 23 for five nights. I hoped it would last forever… This is our third visit and I can only say that this is a wonderful guesthouse. The owners are so friendly, so serviceminded and so helpful – in fact, they had booked restaurants and... More

As soon as we arrived here I was so happy, my only disappointment was we hadn't booked for longer. Fantastic welcome by the owners who showed us to our room which was fantastic with a great bathroom and amazing balcony overlooking the pool. The view was spectacular and the location was perfect - just round the corner from the main... More

We arrived at The Plumwood Inn looking forward to recovering from a bruising experience at a "guesthouse" in Ladismith. We were welcomed in by both Roul and Lucienne and shown to a lovely upstairs room with an amazing view over the Franschhoek valley. It was a lovely room, spacious, clean, big wardrobe space, safe, shelves, well designed super-clean bathroom with... More

We had a wonderful 2 nights at Plumwood Inn. We had hoped to book a luxury room but as these are only available for minimum of 3 nights we stayed in a standard room which really was quite lovely. The room was large, with a wonderfully comfortable king size bed and very well appointed bathroom. My only gripe would be... More

We have just spent 3 weeks in the Western Cape for my husband's 60th birthday. We had 5 nights at this amazing place. The location is perfect - as are the hosts & the rooms feel fresh & airy. The perfect breakfast completes the whole experience. Thank you so much. Gill & John

Well we will come back as it seems to do many others. A lovely welcome and a pleasant walk through a garden past two pools to our room. We had planned to be upstairs and ended up next to the breakfast room but we were happy as we get up early. Others might like a little more quiet. The breakfasts... More

What a lovely place and thanks to the people who recommended us to stay here. Our room was perfect with plenty of space, an excellent bathroom, a beautiful view and delicious breakfasts. Roel and Lucienne, our hosts, were always ready with helpful advice and suggestions for evening meals. Very glad we had five nights in such a beautiful area and... More

My husband and I have stayed here every January for 3 years. Roel, Lucienne and Christopher make one's stay very comfortable and they are very helpful with booking restaurants and activities. There are three houses and two swimming pools in a large garden and only 11 rooms. It is a quiet and peaceful retreat within walking distance of many restaurants.... More
