My husband I stayed at the Plumwood Inn for 4 nights in December 2006. The owners, Raoul & Lucienne are a lovely, young, hardworking, Dutch couple who have put their heart and soul into the upgrading of this guesthouse and will who bend over backwards to assist you in any way they can. There are rooms in the main house and also apartments at the top of the garden overlooking one of 2 swimming pools. We stayed in one of the two upstairs bedrooms (all with AC) in the main building, which although not the biggest room I've ever stayed in, was more than adequate for our needs and had a decent sized, modern shower room leading off. There were no seating areas within our room but there were ample communal areas to sit elsewhere - either in the main house or an annexe at the top of the garden where you had facilities to read, drink complimentary tea/coffee etc or sip wine from the honesty bar. Lucienne is quite the cook and she takes great pride and enjoyment in providing for her guests - whether it be sumptious banana bread, muffins at breakfast time,or full evening meals. Location-wise, the Plumwood is ideally situated at the Hugeneot monument end of the main street, within an easy 10 minute walk of all the main restaurants and shops. There is also off-street parking for approx 4 cars. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the Plumwood Inn to others, no matter what age group. I think it would be particularly well suited to couples travelling together as the layout of the apartments with large balconies, overlooking the garden ,lend themselves well to a group of people.
