We loved Milkwood Manor! Peaceful, right on the beach, close to town, clean and modern with a touch of nostalgia. The staff are just perfect, especially the gent at reception who is very knowledgeable on things to see and do in the area. He helped us with taxis, bookings and dinner reservations - all with a genuine smile on his...

Staff are great, and location amazing, breakfast fabulous. Manageress needs to go to charm school though. Rooms very nice, great value. Note the restaurant is not run by the hotel. They have some attitude issues. Stay here for the location and be wowed.

Very nice location but the rooms very claustrophobic . We had a sea facing room which had a great view but sitting on balcony is not very private as basically no partition between neighbours place. The bathroom is big but stuffy as windows don't open. No bar fridge. Not recommended for plett where I visit often. It can often rain...

Dear Imraan K, Oh what a shame that you didn't have the best Milkwood Manor experience! Seems like nothing was up to standard! Thank you for bringing these points to our attention as it is so easy to become complacent when you receive only awesome reviews, all the time. Hope the rest of your holiday was pleasant....

We had a wonderful stay and will come back any day. Friendly staff and terrific location. Food was excellent and we would recommend Milkwood Manor to all our friends. Pitty about the swimming pool as it was quite hot.

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
