our 4th visit to this hotel, and its still brilliant. Location is perfect to walk around the town. Rooms are well appointed as are the bathrooms, and still the poached eggs at breakfast remain unsurpassed.

I stayed at Plumwood Inn several years ago for few times, and was always again impressed by the atmosphere ot this lodge. It is the perfect place to explore Franschhoek and the entire area. Internet is top, rooms are nice, stylish but practical, great breakfast.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at Plumwood Inn as part of our 25th wedding anniversary trip and we cannot fault the experience from initial contact, dinner recommendations and reservations, situation, standard of accommodation and breakfast.

We recently stayed for 5 nights & our room, nr 4 upstairs, completely exceeded our expectations & was much nicer than was depicted on their website. The bathroom was light & very spacious with a huge tub that came complete with a big bowl of bath salts, perfect for soaking after a long day of sightseeing. The walk in shower...

Plumwood has a great location right in the centre of this beautiful village - yet our room (upstairs #4) had a wonderful outlook over the valley and up into the mountains. The quality of everything was excellent - great hosts, big room, spacious bathroom and a nice balcony to enjoy a glass of local wine. It was an easy stroll...

Beautiful grounds, lovely room, outstanding breakfast and the nicest hosts that you will ever meet. We enjoyed our two night stay here immensely. The room was large and comfortable with nice touches like the heated floor in the bathroom and a veranda with comfortable chairs to enjoy views of the garden. The pools looked refreshing but the weather was a...

My companion and I absolutely loved our stay at Plumwood. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, with the loveliest bathroom we encountered throughout our trip to South Africa. The mountain view from our balcony was breathtaking, as is the surrounding scenery in general. Plumwood is owned by a very kind and hospitable couple and staffed by helpful and friendly...

This place has it all: spacious rooms, a cool pool, amazing views over the vineyards, great catering, excellent service, a yummy breakfast, bicycles for rent and very quiet at night. We stayed several times in Franschhoek, but never found it better than at Plumwood. Keep up the good work!
