My Husband and I spent three wonderful nights here in November. We dove straight from the airport and followed the excellent directions given to us and had no problems finding this delightful guest house. It is very centrally located in the small village of Franschhoek, being just one small block back from the main street.
We were warmly welcomed by Lucienne, Roel and Chris and shown to our lovely room. We had booked the Main House Luxury Room and were very happy with our choice. It was spacious and very comfortable with the most fantastic bathroom and delightful balcony which overlooked the mountains to the front of the property. We also had our own large well-stocked mini-bar just outside our room in our own private sitting area.
Below our room was a lovely public living area and there was another in the newer accommodation block behind the pool.
There are two swimming pools but only the main one has sun loungers and parasols. As others have mentioned, the water is very refreshing. What we particularly liked, however, was that there was plenty of shade and it was very peaceful.
The breakfasts were superb with lots of home-made items and the service excellent.
Everything about this place was 5*, the owners and Manager were always present and very approachable, the rooms superb, the gardens beautiful, the breakfasts both delicious and plentiful, the location within walking distance of so many good restaurants and everywhere was very clean. I would feel happy recommending the Plumwood Inn to the most discerning traveller.
Next time we return to the area we would definitely stay at Plumwood again.
