Milkwood Manor on Sea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 January 2013

My wife and i were driving around and we found this place at the end of this road on the beach.
the location is great with an amazing sea view.....
Very friendly hosts and staff , the rooms are super clean and what a view ! our room didn't have Ac but we had a superb balcony
the breakfast is good but the best part is that you take it in the restaurant on the terrass on the sea, no better way to start a day
The owner, lovely man will give you all the advises and tips you need to make your trip around Plett nice.

Room Tip: try to have on of the room on the back with the best sea view

Great location, beautiful view, very friendly staff, just the access to the beach could be easier organized... Even our car was cleaned and a member of staff recommends tours and excursions... Recommendable

We spent 2 nights at the Milkwoodmanor with its special location between the lagoon and the sea, nice cosy room with a lost of air and sun light, very tidy and clean. But the best is the breakfirst on the large terrace of the enclosed Restaurant Lemongrass with the stunning view over the beach and the breaking waves of the ocean. Owner/staff were very attentive and personally looked after us to get the most out of our stay in Plettenberg and surroundings with helpful tips what to do and to see. Went both evenings for Dinner at the Lemongrass and were delighted by the quality and selection of food served.

Room Tip: If you want a room facing the sea you should book well in advance, the same is recommended for the L...

This is a beautiful hotel in a fabulous location - we had a room with the sea on one side and the lagoon on the other; just beautiful. The service is excellent, friendly and unobtrusive. The adjoining restaurant serves some of the best food we had in two weeks in South Africa. The rooms are comfortable, decorated in a simple but imaginative way. Kees very helpfully provided lots of information about activities in the area around.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 and 6 have the best view; rooms on the ground floor are best

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
