It's not very often that I actually write reviews, however after staying one night at Milkwood on our trip down the Garden route, I thought I should share with you all how amazing this place is. Booking & check in was friendly, straight forward & efficient, the welcome was warm & the room.... well it was fabulous with stunning views of the lagoon & sea. We ate a divine dinner in the lemongrass restaurant, with excellent service from the waiters. Breakfast the following morning was equally as nice. Unfortunately we could only stay one night as our schedule wouldn't allow any more.... I could've easily stayed a week in this calm, tranquil, beautiful manor. Needless to say, I will highly recommend Milkwood to anyone I know travelling in the area & if I am ever back iin SA from the UK, I will plan my trip around this guest house.... thanks Milkwood!
- 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
