Reviewed August 30, 2012

Great accommodation (huge 'room'), close to the beach and the city center. The wifi wasn't available in the cottage so you had to go to the breakfast room. Lovely breakfast (with pancakes). Nice hosts!

We spent a weekend with our toddler at the self catering cottage. The accomodation was huge, plenty of space for my little one to run around and very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped and well above the usual standard for self catering. The underfloor heating was a treat!

The breakfast that was included was the best I have had at a guest house and could rival quite a few hotels.

We found the staff very friendly and accomodating - and what we appreciated the most was how child friendly the establishment was. When we went for breakfast, the table was set and the high chair already in place, the staff enquired if we wanted any hot breakfast for our little one. The camping cot was being set up as we arrived. They went out of their way ot check that everything was okay.

The only negatives (and these are small) is that the wi-fi was not availible in the cottage, you had to be near the reception area to pick it up and there was not a big selection of TV channels if you are keen to veg on the couch.

My colleagues and I had a 3-week stay at the Milkwood Lodge during an audit in Hermanus. Look, any place can boast 4-star accommodation by fulfilling certain criteria, and Milkwood is no different in this regard. But the quality of service is beyond 5-star... Linda and her entourage are the epitomy of everything you've come to expect from a quiet, relaxed seaside town. They go far out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Their facilities are pretty good too. All the comforts and amenities you've come to expect from a reputable establishment such as this. A definite recommendation for anyone wanting to visit Hermanus, and fantastic value for money, considering what you get for your buck.

Room Tip: Ask for the cottage...

Milkwood proved to be the highlight of a 3 week holiday for my guest, a German tourist. The atmosphere and warmth is noticed as soon as Linda welcomes you. The room we stayed in was large, much bigger than any hotel room. The view from our patio was spectacular and the location is perfect. 5 minutes drive takes you to some of the best restaurants. We could walk to Grotto Beach. Fernkloof is also within walking distance. A perfect getaway! Breakfast was ample and the variety was impressive. No complaints at all!

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Peace and tranquil - so close to the beautiful Grotto beach and very accessible to the town. A warm and welcoming atmosphere and great hospitality from Linda. Our young son and his cousin loved it and were in tears when we had to leave - says it all !!!! Thank you for a great time.

A very nice place, even though it is a bit out of town. Large and well appointed room and excellent breakfast. Only complaint was the WiFi- could not access it from thre room- had to sit outside the office
