Can't beat the location within short walking distance to main street. Would have preferred upstairs rooms since we reserved very long in advance. Had 2 rooms, one with fireplace which was great but second room same price and no fireplace? Good choices for breakfast and were given nice take away breakfast for our early leave on check out which was... More

My husband and I stayed two night. Our room is on the second floor with a balcony. We watched the sunset over the mountains and it was enjoyable. The location is great and you can leisurely walk to any of the restaurants. Chris and the staff are very friendly. We are very happy to get a free upgrade and we... More

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights in August. Amazingly great location in Franschhoek, friendly & professional welcome. We were lucky to get a winter upgrade into a STUNNING second floor room in one of the villas - the view from the balcony was sensational - which happily was also the view from the bed, the bed was...

Lovely Inn in the heart of franschoek. Christopher was incredibly welcoming and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the real fireplace in our room. I would recommend a second floor room for increased privacy on the very spacious deck/balcony.

We've just returned from SA which included a lovely stay at the Plumwood Inn. This is an exquisite 'guesthouse', a title which doesn't do it justice. The rooms are wonderful and our favourite addition is the open fire which was very welcome during the cold day we had; it was just perfect sitting in front of the fire with a... More

My boyfriend and I had an absolutely lovely 3 night stay here. The views from our second floor room were stunning, and the room itself was such a treat. The room was fully equipped (air con, heated floors, etc) to keep us very warm at night- something we found rare during our 3 week trip in SA in July! We... More

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
