The Inn is a short walk from the town in a quiet spot and has 2 lovely outdoor pools in beautifully tended gardens that you can while away a...

Spent four nights in Plumwood Inn including New year's Eve. The Inn is just a stone's throw from the town's main street but it still nice and peaceful. We stayed in one of the luxury rooms which had a stunning view of the surrounding countryside. I don't remember specifically requesting this room so I think we just got lucky but...

No words can describe what a fantastic time we had during the 6 nights we stayed at the Plumwood Inn. It has been fantastic, it is hard leaving this place. The guesthouse looks very small when arriving, as you only see the one building. Once you go through the amazing lounge, a whole new world opens to you. First a...

Had a very relaxing 4 night stay in December. The owners were very helpful and offered great advice on restaurants. The location is perfect, less than 5 minutes walk from the best restaurants in town. We went on a wine tour arranged by the guesthouse which was wonderful.

The owners and staff of Plumwood show passion for their work and friendliness to their guests. They make their own jam, give fantastic suggestions of things to do, and readily make any needed arrangements required, such as booking a great driver, restaurant bookings and providing mountain bikes. The room was clean and beautiful. The location is just a quick walk...

Plumwood Inn is an excellent B&B, a stones throw away from the town centre, yet tranquil and secluded. The dutch owners are very friendly and most helpful. They know everything there is to know about the town and the region, best of all, their recommendations for restaurants are perfect. They also manage to give their immaculate B&B a relaxed atmosphere....

We stayed here for 7 nights. It's unreal, location, service, atmosphere, rooms, cleanliness and everything about the place was brilliant. The guy and his wife that run it can not do enough for you, they are awesome. Will be staying here again without doubt.

We booked a standard room and was very pleasantly surprised at the size, comfort and quality of the room. The lodge is very managed and the attentive and hands on hosts make this lodge an excellent choice in franschoek. The service was excellent and dining recommendations on the mark. Trust the reviews, you will not be disappointed.
