You can walk out the hotel into the lagoon, excellent customer service, and very nice restaurant overlooking the lagoon. The room was spacious and comfortable. Also an easy walk to Lookout Deck and Restaurant.

Peaceful, pleasant, wonderful views from our room. Best location in Plett. Just open the gate & you're on Lookout Beach. Very friendly service. Would be that much better if Wi Fi communication was better.

This place is brilliant. We spent to nights here as part of our honeymoon and the service we got was excellent. The sea and river facing rooms are amazing, great views from the patio. We will definitely be back soon.

A lovely hotel in a wonderful setting with wonderful views of the sea and the lagoon. Room was very comfortable and the balcony and seating furniture allowed us to make full use of the outside views. Staff were good and the food in the restaurant was good.

Milkwood Manor is in a great location on Plettenberg bays lookout beach. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The breakfast could be improved and I did miss not having a swimming pool but you are right on the beach.

If you like to go to sleep with the sound of the surf then this is the place for you. There's a very nice restaurant attached and two other within easy walking distance across the beach. If this hotel was in a similar location in the UK you'd have to book years in advance.

Hotel is right at the beach - there is not many hotels in Plett that can offer this. Nice terrasse/balcony with sunbeds to relax. Wonderful breakfast (in fact the best we had on our trip) with a wide selection of cold an hot items. Nice add on: You can borrow kajaks an beach chairs for free. Would definetly stay here...

We enjoyed the location of the B&B directly on Lookout Beach. The hotel also has a very nice restaurant, Lemon Grass. The establishment is small and although the staff were pleasant, sometimes were hard to find. Rooms are average size and modestly furnished, but you definitely will enjoy the location.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Location: The most enviable location on the Garden Route. At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, jutting into the ocean - any closer and you would be in it! - as well as the estuary of a large lagoon- no neighbours but nature! Exquisite, unimpeded 180 views (360 from the roof deck) of the vast blue ocean, golden beaches, large lagoon and the imposing Tsitsikamma Mountain Range. Nature all'round, yet not isolated, but only a 2-minute drive from the town centre and its trendy shops.A pristine beach: accessible from the sheltered cove adjacent to the Manor - ideal for swimming in natural water – you may boat across to an unspoiled and usually deserted beach, far from built-up areas, traffic, crowds and noise. Blissful solitude and a complete immersion in nature, with only the sound of white-crested surf tumbling at one’s feet and the calls of a medley of seabirds – a veritable bird sanctuary. Becalming and rejuvenating - the perfect antidote for stress,. With luck you may even find the mysterious and sought-after pansy shell (sand dollar).The Manor: built in classic Georgian style, with an airy double-volume foyer and eleven double bedrooms, most with private patio or balcony. All rooms are decorated in crisp white and en-suite to a shower cubicle with/without bath, and a queen bed or twin beds, TV-hospitality package, free uncapped Wi-Fi, tea/coffee making facilities, safe, fan, heater and hairdryer. The sash windows allow the fresh ocean air straight in. ... more   less
