We stayed at Milkwood Manor for 2 nights while traveling the garden route. The location was just as pictured, right on the ocean at the mouth of the river. Our room faced the river and the balcony provided fabulous views. The rooms were spotless, nicely appointed, quiet and very comfortable.
The excellent buffet breakfast in the Lemongrass Restaurant located in the guest house,was included. During breakfast the owner, Kees, visited with guests offering ideas for the days activities. We would have loved to had dinner at Lemongrass, but it was not open for dinner the 2 nights we were there. However, the staff gave us wonderful recommendations for dinner both evenings.
All of the staff were very helpful. The extra touches, such as a freshly washed car each morning, help with luggage, maps to local attractions, and a personal welcome from the staff and farewell from the owner just added to the enjoyment of our stay. There is even a webcam on the property so you can share the great views with friends and family back home.
We are so glad that we chose Milkwood Manor and would highly recommend it to anyone planning on staying in the area.
- 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
