We stayed at Plumwood Inn for four nights and it faultless. The venue is gorgeous, the rooms at spacious and comfortable, the hosts could not be more helpful and the food is excellent. I would not change a single thing and would definitely stay here again if visiting Franschoek.

We recently stayed for 5 nights & our room, nr 4 upstairs, completely exceeded our expectations & was much nicer than was depicted on their website. The bathroom was light & very spacious with a huge tub that came complete with a big bowl of bath salts, perfect for soaking after a long day of sightseeing. The walk in shower... More

Plumwood has a great location right in the centre of this beautiful village - yet our room (upstairs #4) had a wonderful outlook over the valley and up into the mountains. The quality of everything was excellent - great hosts, big room, spacious bathroom and a nice balcony to enjoy a glass of local wine. It was an easy stroll... More

Beautiful grounds, lovely room, outstanding breakfast and the nicest hosts that you will ever meet. We enjoyed our two night stay here immensely. The room was large and comfortable with nice touches like the heated floor in the bathroom and a veranda with comfortable chairs to enjoy views of the garden. The pools looked refreshing but the weather was a... More

My companion and I absolutely loved our stay at Plumwood. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, with the loveliest bathroom we encountered throughout our trip to South Africa. The mountain view from our balcony was breathtaking, as is the surrounding scenery in general. Plumwood is owned by a very kind and hospitable couple and staffed by helpful and friendly... More

This place has it all: spacious rooms, a cool pool, amazing views over the vineyards, great catering, excellent service, a yummy breakfast, bicycles for rent and very quiet at night. We stayed several times in Franschhoek, but never found it better than at Plumwood. Keep up the good work!

This place is located just off the Main Street in Franschhoek. The room we got was large, a with clean and fresh look. The price per night is really good and the breakfast is nice. What pushed this up to an excellent stay for us was the great hospitality and recommendations we got from the staff. Great place!

We spent 2 nights in Franschhoek at the Plumwood and had a excellent time enjoying the food and wine of the region. The Plumwood is located very close to the main street (1 block) in a very safe area. We walked around at night both evenings and it felt like walking around Napa Valley. The Plumwood offers off-street, private and... More
