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.

Stayed in the Plumwood Inn for 3 nights and to be honest cannot praise it highly enough. The location was a stones throw from the main street, with its many and varied restaurants, but away from any traffic noise. Room was large and enjoyed a large balcony with mountain views (as requested - Room 3) The hosts were very helpful... More

Each room has a private ( spacious ) balkony, shower, bath, bidet, good comfy bed. Breakfast is great. Hosts are friendly and can make and... More

We stayed at Plumwood Inn in October for two nights, and only wish it had been longer. The property is perfect, in a great location with stylish and very comfortable rooms.

A gorgeous oasis in the centre of Franschhoek. Very modern, clean and comfortable with a lovely pool area. Only stayed for one night but memorable for all the right reasons. Lovely views over vineyards and mountains. Deceptive from the front as looks like a b&b, but much more a boutique hotel. Highly recommend.

We had a very nice couple of nights at The Plumwood Inn. The hosts Roel and Lucienne were very accommodating. We were met late at night when we arrived from Cape Town and very graciously given a quick tour and a glass of wine. The grounds are beautiful and very serene; two smal pools surrounded by gardens.

Plumwood Inn is located at a very beautiful spot in this hilly vineyard town of S.Africa and is very close (walk able distance) to the main street.
