Milkwood Manor on Sea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2012

We spent one night at Milkwood Manor and upon arrival were already told we would regret not staying longer - which ended up to be very true. The setting is just beautiful, the scenery amazing and the rooms wonderfully decorated. We can only recommend the food at the LemonGrass restaurant, which belongs to Milkwood Manor and has a beautiful terrace facing the sea. Kees gave us great advise for our onward journey. Hopefully, we can come back some time...

We spent one night here on our way to Summerstrand and what a delight it was. The staff were extremely friendly, especially the terrace bar and restaurant staff. The view is really beautiful and was opened up six years ago when a huge storm ripped through the area and washed away the swimming pool and the end of the strand. The new restaurant makes the most of the lagoon view where we watched a seal and her pup playing. It was my husband's birthday on the day we left but the hotel still presented him with a half bottle of bubbly which was a charming touch. Kees even walked us to our car as we left. An excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Request an ocean or lagoon view.

We only wanted to stay one night at Milkwood Manor but ended up staying two. The Manor is beautifully appointed and although we didn't have a seafront room the views where still spectacular.
The staff was excellent and very helpful advising us on things to do in the area.

My husband and I stayed at Milkwood Manor for 2 nights. I am so glad I chose this place. The manor itself and the rooms are very nice indeed. Everyone was most welcoming and as an added bonus you could go up on the rooftop to where they have a live webcame so you can wave to friends back home while you are there. Also another bonus is the car wash for guests staying there. Our car was particularly dirty after driving thru Kruger etc but the lovely young man working there had it sparkling before we headed out for the day. Then he did the same thing the next day. Their dinning room has beautiful views out over the water which we appreciated while eating our breakfast. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in this area.

My partner and I spent one night at Milkwood Manor on our way to Addo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and really wished we could have spent more time there. We selected Room 12 which has a dual aspect over both the sea and the lagoon - I don't think there can be more wonderful scenic views anywhere. Our genial host Kees made our brief stay all the more pleasant - always there to say hello and provide useful information. The breakfast was superb and we found ourselves reluctant to leave the next morning although what a surprise to find our car washed - great service and a nice touch. We shall definitely stay here again on our next visit to Plettenberg.

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
