The room has been designed around theview, with both the bed and chairs facing the glass doors, which open onto a patio with the mountains, as the backdrop. Monica, the... More

I booked into petit Jordan for Bastille weekend. I didn't look at any pictures and decided to wing it. When we arrived we were absolutely blown away. This is the perfect spot for a franschhoek weekend away and relaxed break. The house is beautifully decorated and extremely spacious! Vineyards surround the house and provide a delightful setting. The house is... More

Visiting Franschhoek in June was perfect! Less crowds and more time to stroll around to enjoy the scenery. Plumwood Inn is certainly a place we want to return to in winter. Staff were so accommodating and efficient with all our requests. A fireplace to warm the room as well as reverse cycle air conditioning kept us cosy during the cold... More

If you want first hand luxury, go to Plumwood Inn. You will feel rejuvenated when you leave, although you won't want to! We had an outstanding stay. I would go back tomorrow! This was our third visit and we have always enjoyed every minute of our stays.

We stayed at Plumwood for 2 Nights June 2016 and stayed in a room with a lovely wood Fire. The room had underfloor heating and everything we needed for our brief stay. Breakfast was good. The home made pancakes were exceptionally good. Great location for us within walking distance to the restaurants and Wine Tour Ticket Office. Which was our... More

Guests receive a warm welcome and the owners and staff are available to provide suggestions, call for reservations, etc. The breakfasts are very good with numerous options provided, both on the buffet and cooked to order.

From the initial contact with online booking to the day of departure, this was an effortless and relaxing holiday. They were very accommodating, considering we changed our booking dates on short notice. Beautiful guesthouse with a gorgeous view from rooms and breakfast area.

We loved staying at Plumwood inn in Franschhoek becuase it was walking distance to everything in town and it was off the main road which was nice and quiet. The rooms are lovely and the bathrooms are elegant. I'd recommend this for a romantic night away from Cape Town. The breakfast in the morning was very fresh and tasty. The... More

Thank you for your review. All rooms at the back have a remote control with 2 buttons: one for the gate by the main entrance, and one for the gate by their room, which we do explain at check in. We don't provide keys for the gate. More
