Great hosts, beautiful views from very comfortable rooms. Just a delight to stay here, only sorry we couldn't stay longer. Enjoyed the pool and the full breakfast cooked to order. The owners even took care of making dinner reservations for us.

This was our second visit to Franschhoek but our first stay at Plumwood Inn. What a great choice. Just a couple of minutes walk from Franschhoek's many fine dining establishments and shops. Great breakfasts, friendly and informed advice from our hosts and comfortable rooms. Highly recommended.

The Plumwood Inn close to the centre of Franschoek surpassed our expectations. We stayed recently for 5 nights and would highly recommend it as a relaxing place to stay while also enjoying the area. Its very secure and in a perfect location - a short stroll to the centre yet in a quiet residential street. Lucienne and Ruul work extremely...

Very nice place to stay and friendly staff. We stayed here for 3 nights and although we did not like Franshoek very much, we very much liked this place. It's quite expensive, but if you want to spend this amount of money, pay a little bit more for a luxury room (we booked to late, they were sold out). Breakfast...
