Our first stay but definitely not our last. We loved this place. The rooms are perfectly appointed - everything has been so well thought out. A comprehensive and delicious breakfast served every morning. Lucienne and Raol on hand to help help with all our requests. If your going to Franshoek then pick Plumwood . It's idyllic.

We've just returned from Plumwood Inn. What a delightful place very conveniently located for the town centre. The rooms are large (we stayed in 2)and tastefully furnished and the bathrooms are lovely and spotlessly clean. You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay here.

Really enjoyed my stay here. Simple but stylish and comfortable with a great location in central Franschhoek right next to a much more expensive and well known hotel. The owner is very friendly and helpful and full of good advice on places to eat and vineyards to visit. She kindly booked us a table at the (very) nearby Grill Room...

Stayed in the Plumwood Inn for 3 nights as part of our Honeymoon, its a fantastic guesthouse set in the heart of Franschhoek. From the moment you arrive with the tranquil atmosphere you cant but relax. The common areas of the Houses are stacked with books and the availability of bottles of port certainly help winding down from a day...
