We had two wonderful nights at Plumwood Inn. It is a very easy walk to the centre of town, which is very useful if you get into the local wine. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and well fitted out. The breakfasts were so yummy, with everything you could possibly want provided. I can thoroughly recommend Plumwood Inn.

Wonderful big room and bathroom, with everything you could wish for. Loads of tea and coffee, you would never have to ask for more. Well stocked honesty bar with reasonably priced drinks and wine. Double bath with shower attachment and a massive shower with really great water pressure - almost knocked me over. Good quality toiletries. Really comfortable bed with... More

We had a wonderful 3 nights at this five star guesthouse. The facilities were of a very high standard with plenty of space, a large bed and little extras like an honesty bar stocked with local wine. The breakfasts were excellent, a fantastic range including daily specials - the mango smoothie to die for - I only wish I had... More

I loved every minute of our time at Plumwood, what a great find. We were made to feel like family from the very beginning, the room/bathroom was very large and clean & the location in town allowed for easy walks to dinner locations. Look no further for your franschhoek accommodation

Our visit to Franschhoek was short and needed a place within walking distance to restaurants. We went for the standard rooms. The size is relatively smaller than most rooms we stayed in Cape Town, but extremely comfortable (with a huge bathroom). The hosts were lovely and breakfast was delicious (with lots of healthy options).

This was our last stay before going home from our three weeks in South Africa and it was definitely a case of leaving the best till last. A perfect place in every way from the lovely rooms to the helpful and friendly owners. The location is perfect being just laid back from the main road resulting in a quiet peaceful... More

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.
