Perfect location on an amazing beach. Service from hotel staff was great and my 50th birthday is definitely one to remember. Recommend the food in the Lemongrass restaurant. Very handy being a stones throw from The Lookout bar and restaurant on the beach opposite. Would definitely go back!

As we were on honeymoon and it was my wife's birthday we decided to stay at Milkwood because of the beautiful views and the style of the manor. We were really impressed with the service and the overall experience. We will definetely stay there again when we are in the area.

The beach is literally just outside the hotel, which is very convenient for us. Our room was nicely furnished and clean, but we found it slightly stuffy at night without air-conditioning (perhaps it's the orientation of our room as it was facing the public carpark). The breakfast was also delicious and cooked to order too. We were also pleasantly surprised...

We only had one night, but we will return for sure. The location is very nice, directly on the beach. As special service they clean all the cars in the morning. We enjoyed our stay in Plettenberg Bay.

Our ground floor room was stunning with beautiful sea views, comfortable beds, a lovely bathroom offering a bath and shower, and an outside patio with sun loungers. The restaurant adjoined to the hotel was also very good for dinner and the included breakfast.. Would definitely stay here again. If you want to dine at the hotel in the evening make...

Absolutely stunning - situated right on the beach. A few steps away from the sea.The establishment is spotless and modern.The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfast served in a highly acclaimed restaurant, was delicious. My only complaint is that our stay was too short! Will definitely go there again.

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
