Plumwood Inn, in the Cape Winelands town of Franschhoek, is a comfortable guesthouse close to the main street running through the village. Expect intimate, personal service with attention to detail.
Situated on a quiet street off the main road in Franschhoek – truth be told all the streets in Franschhoek are quiet - Plumwood Inn is a quality boutique guest house offering quiet sophistication in a town that strives towards its own quiet sophistication and not without a dash of parochial charm.
Plumwood Inn has 11 rooms of different sizes and levels of luxury - you may find navigating the options is a bit like trying to solve Rubic's cube. There are four rooms in the main house and three in a subsequent villa. While the décor of each room is unique the bright and jazzy style and a sufficient level of luxury are common to all. Opt for the luxury rooms, if your budget allows, for extra space, extra-length king size beds, glorious showers, underfloor heating and a private balcony.
Breakfasts are a feature at Plumwood Inn and a meal good enough to keep you going through an arduous day exploring Franschhoek Valley.
