Very good, nice, beautiful accommodation! ! Beautiful view over the sea with a greatful sunrise. Problem with the wifirst. . That was bit bad ... because we normally need it for new booings. It didn't work more than 24h. But all in all it was a very good stay

Dear G8066IJjenniferh Thank you for your review; we're so glad to hear that you enjoyed our stay. Apologies about the wi-fi though, in Africa it can be a bit unreliable at times and we're sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. We hope to see you again in the near future. Kind regards, Milkwood Manor on Sea

Before we could ask for anything you'd already done it. They even washed all the cars of the guests by the next morning. Everyone we dealt with were super helpful and friendly. Great location. And the views!

Loved it. Only booked in for 1 night and regretted it! Such a gorgeous room and a real seaside feel to the place. Friendly staff, great breakfast, right on the beach and opposite a delicious restaurant (Lookout Deck) which was very convenient (we didn't manage to try the in-house restaurant for dinner). Can't find a fault in the place!

Dear Bellarustybelles, Thank you for your candid review! It's usually the case that our guests regret only staying for one night, but thankfully we are not going anywhere, so next time you visit make sure you spend a few extra days enjoying the river and beach among all the other fabulous things Plett has to offer. Hope to see you...

We stayed at Milkwood for two nights in the middle of our honeymoon in March. We were slightly early but the receptionist could not have been more friendly and welcoming on arrival! We decided to have dinner in the Lemon Grass Restaurant - we were lucky enough to be served by the receptionist who checked us in. The food was...

Plettenberg bay is a very nice spot to stay. Excellant beach. The Manor has style. Rebuilt and refurbished. Ask for a room with a view on the beach. Private balcony. Very good beds. Super breakfast. Lot of privacy abd a safe place. Beach just before the hotel. They even wash your car in the morning before you leave. Never seen...

Spent two nights here while touring and was really impressed. Rooms were excellent with nice balcony overlooking the lagoon. Breakfast were very good and staff really friendly. We even had our car washed for us first thing in the morning. Would love to go back sometime and spend a longer time here.

This is a great location but it just isn't quite 4 stars in my opinion.

Dear C5357WZjanew, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. You'd be surprised to know that some of our regular guests stay for up to two weeks, and some even longer.

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
