We stayed for 5 nights at Plumwood Inn. Plumwood Inn has 11 rooms and I had chosen room 3 for us, which was on the upper floor with uninterrupted views over the vineyards to the mountains beyond. The room was very large and had large patio doors which opened on to the terrace affording great view whilst sitting up in...

From the moment you arrive they take care of you in every way. From drinks to restaurant and wine farm bookings down to laundry, it's all taken care of. Rooms, amenities, breakfast all outstanding. Best place we have ever stayed in South Africa and we would rank it at the top of all hotels we have ever stayed in. So...

Lovely small personal hotel 3 minute walk from Main Street, yet excellent views and really quiet. Best points: Lovely rooms, Mountain views, excellent breakfast, location, and personal service from owners, and the helpful Monita who manages the office.

What was really the best was the view from the breakfast room, and the breakfast itself. At most places in South Africa, there is not much choice at breakfast so you have eggs and bacon. Which you do get fed up with after a while, and it is not healthy. The breakfast at Plumbwood Inn is amazing; fresh fruits, stewed...

Took my wife to Franschhoek for her birthday. We stayed at Plumwood in a standard room for two days mid week. Plumwood is expensive, but by Franschhoek standards acceptable. I would recommend the guesthouse if you wish to stay in town. If you're on a tight budget and don't mind traveling into town, I'd recommend looking outside town. The guesthouse...

Second time to Franschhoek but first time to this place in an ideal spot right in the centre just off the main street close to some of the great eateries the town has to offer. The place was started up 16 years ago by Roel and Lucienne who came across from the Netherlands and they have done a really nice...

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...

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.
