This place is amazing. The couple that own it can not do enough to make your stay the absolute best. We have been to the area a number of times and stayed here twice now and will certainly come back. The rooms are huge and well kept, the breakfast is perfect and you are 20m from the Main Street. Plumwood... More

Everything from the location, bedrooms, breakfast and the staff, Perfect. A bit of paradise in the middle of Franshhoek. Highly recommend for a restful holiday. For those who wish there is free entrance to a gym just a few minutes away.

our 4th visit to this hotel, and its still brilliant. Location is perfect to walk around the town. Rooms are well appointed as are the bathrooms, and still the poached eggs at breakfast remain unsurpassed.

I stayed at Plumwood Inn several years ago for few times, and was always again impressed by the atmosphere ot this lodge. It is the perfect place to explore Franschhoek and the entire area. Internet is top, rooms are nice, stylish but practical, great breakfast.

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.

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.

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.
