We ended a short trip to the Garden route with two nights at Milkwood Manor on Sea and couldn't have made a better choice. We were upgraded to a ground floor room with a view of the beach (and lagoon) and felt thoroughly spoiled.
The rooms are beautifully furnished and have everything you need and the breakfast was really delicious. We could walk onto Lookout Beach and just chill for the day. Position, position, position!

I attempted to make a booking at Milkwood for December. My experience was less than stellar. I'm a travel consultant, so these things matter to me. The service I get when booking usually directly correlates to the service my clients get when they check in.

I saw availability online, but I prefer to book directly so I called Milkwood. I spoke to Reservationist One. She assured me that the room was available and that we could hold it overnight while I waited to received payment from the client I was booking for. She asked me to send the details in an email to Reservationist Two, who was standing by to receive it. I did this before I'd ended the call.

The following day, having received payment from the client on a booking I believed to be confirmed, I emailed to ask for the invoice with payment details. I received no response, so I called them. I spoke to Reservationist Two this time, who informed me that the room I wanted 'had been sold out for ages', but that they would help with other dates.

I was unhappy. Very unhappy. When I questioned how this could be, I was told that no reservation had been made for the room when I'd called the day before. I protested in the strongest terms, and was told that Reservationist Two would call me back. I was surprised to hear that she had my number FROM THE EMAIL I'D SENT. How, I questioned heatedly, could they have received my email but made no reservation? She responded by hanging up on me. Admittedly, I was yelling a bit by this stage. Wouldn't you be?

I called back to ask for the owner's details so that I could complain properly, and spoke to Reservationist One. I recognised her voice and she confirmed that I'd spoken to her the day before and that the room HAD been available, but that they work on a live system and the room had been booked out before they received my email (sent, remember, while I was ON the phone with her the previous day).

"So, which is it?", I asked. Res2 tells me the room was sold out ages ago. Res1 tells me that the room was available but then was gone before they saw my email. Instead of answering, I was informed that 'nothing is confirmed until you get a confirmation email'. Which completely belies everything said to be the day before, when I was assured the room would be kept for me/my client. I gave up and demanded the details of the owner, which I was given. I have been unable to speak to this person and she has made no attempt to call me.

I don't need to tell anyone how hard the last 8 months have been on the travel industry. What travel consultants like me DON'T need right now is obfuscation and buck-passing by the very people we're trying to support.

Mistakes happen. A simple response to my email sent the day before stating 'oops - that room is actually booked, sorry' would have prevented a lot of drama. Now I've had to disappoint my client and go back to square one with her booking.

I won't be bothering Milkwood Manor with any requests in future. I can't trust them to respect my clients because they didn't respect me.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Milkwood Manor. The room was comfortable and the views were great. The staff were friendly and attentive. Breakfast was superb! Would come back here for sure!

The location is central and fairly close to most popular attractions in Plettenberg Bay.

This guest house has a superb location right on the beach. The room was fine and the staff helpful but the breakfast was disappointing. The fruit was in short supply and the choice of mains restricted - always eggs so for those non egg eaters it would not be clever.

Dear Russell4422, So sorry to hear that you don't like eggs, but we hope that you noticed the many other breakfast options... We hope that you return in the near future so that we may point out the different breakfast options not containing eggs in a bid to make your stay more pleasurable. Until then, Milkwood Manor on Sea

The hotel is nice, the breakfast was good. Rooms were clean. We were really able to rest in our air conditioned rooms.
The only thing that really bothered us was that tv had only 13 channels (i missed the match i wanted to see) and the wifi was terrible. Supposedly the wifi was not working because of outages but at no time the room wifi worked. As a Chilean couple on holidays we really need to use wifi for doing stuff online.
The living room wifi worked fine in the morning and i was able to do some stuff there but fixing the wifi for all the rooms is not that hard.
Keep improving guys, you have a nice spot that needs some little upgrades.
