There is ample secure parking around the site, the main house and reception is in Cabriere...

We enjoyed 6 nights here in a standard room which although was on the small side was still very well appointed and spotlessly clean as was the bathroom which was a delight. Very modern, great shower and all the facilities you could wish for. Breakfast was beautifully presented and Lucienne and Roel were on hand to satisfy every whim and...

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...

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...
