Very nice B&B with well-decorated rooms (very comfy beds and great bathrooms). It's in a great location just off the main street and the owners are very helpful with handy tips for the area. Very relaxing communal areas can be used to chill out.

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 January 2017 via mobile

Had a fabulous stay here. Roel and Lucienne are brilliant hosts nothing is too much trouble. Our room was spotless and well thought out. The location is great, you can walk to the Main Street in a few minutes and very easy to get to other places too. Our stay was the perfect answer to cold grey winters. Looking forward...

...is how a friend of mine described the Plumwood Inn when she recommended it. She was right. It's a beautiful guest house in very pretty gardens with a lovely, friendly couple, Roel and Lucienne who own and run it. It's in the right bit of Franschhoek - so it's a 3-minute stroll away from the main street- you can walk...

This was our first stop after arriving in South Africa, we had booked quite late so only had the option of the room to the front of the property with no outside area. This was not a problem for us as we were only staying one night but when we arrived we knew we wanted a longer stay. The quality...

Highly recommended. The location is perfect - just a short stroll from Franschhoek high street where the fantastic shops and restaurants are located. Many of the best vineyards were a very short drive away. We had one of the smaller rooms in the main house which was spot on for our requirements and also good value. The whole place was...

This B&B is conveniently located just off the main high street. We had a large room above the guest lounge area which was lovely, it had it's own balcony and a huge bathroom. There was a good choice for breakfast which is a mixture of help yourself and table service. The B&B has bikes which you can hire out for...

This is not our first visit and certainly not our last. The standard has remained the same over the years. They have beautiful decorated comfortable rooms with luxurious bathrooms. Attention is given to detail. The staff is friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. They can always find a table to Restaurants in Frankshoek almost impossible to get in. The breakfast is done...

Plumwood is located in a very convenient spot just off Franchhoek's main street. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful. The house itself is very pretty, with great simple facilities and a 'make yourself at home' vibe. Our room was at the top of a set of uneven stairs, perhaps not safe for older guests, and on first...

Conveniently located within walking distance to the main street of Franschhoek, this guest house is a winner. Our room was quite large, if somewhat spartan, but it had a large deck overlooking the pool and mountains that was absolutely lovely. The bathroom products were wonderful - it was nice to have solid soap! Also nice to be able to walk...

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at the lovely Plumwood Inn. Our room was spacious, with a balcony over the pool. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Most of all, we enjoyed the location of the Inn, as we could park our car and walk in 3 minutes from the Inn to the main street of Franschhoek. A great place...
