A beautiful boutique hotel located on the beach, the sweeping views of the ocean, lagoon & mountains will take your breath away. The rooms are well appointed with all the luxuries one needs & nothing is too much trouble for Kees & the very friendly staff. Our mattress was a little tired & they replaced it with a brand new...

Hardly their fault about the weather of course, unseasonably cool at the end of last October (another late review), or at least for part of the time - we went to Knysna, which was cool and misty but it had been lovely in Plettenberg Bay from almost as soon as we'd left. I'm sure, though, we'd have enjoyed staying here... More

Dear Geoffy, Thank you for your comprehensive review! What a pity that you didn't have sunshine on every day.... Perhaps the next time you book your holiday to South Africa consider the great weather from Late November through March when you are sure to feast on the best beach weather this side of the equator. We are looking forward to... More

Everything is there at Milkwood Manor - the beach, a lake and a restaurant with meals of a high standard all within a 1 minute walk! We stayed 2 nights but could have stayed longer. A great spot to relax along the Garden Route. The management and staff were all very friendly and assisted us with a car problem. Our... More

In our opinion one of the best locations in Plettenberg - right on the beach. Ask for a room that is facing the beach and sea. We were in room 4 which was great. One things that does not necessarily come acros in the web site etc is that there is a restaurant attached to the b & b which... More

...than this wonderful hotel right by the lookout beach. The location is simply fantastic between river and ocean. The hotel guarantees a cosy family atmosphere with special service by the well trained staff.

Milkwood manor is a very picturesque boutique hotel in Plettenberg Bay! We stayed for a night on our recent honeymoon trip... The setting was idyllic, wonderful views and very romantic. We ate in the restaurant for both dinner (not that great) and breakfast (delicious!) Overall a lovely stay and a charming establishment - definitely recommend
