Milkwood Bay Villa

Reviewed October 5, 2011

We found Milkwood Manor by accident, but would strongly recommend you to stay there. It is beautiful inside & out. Every morning at Breakfast the owner comes round & chats to you & advises on all the wonderful things there are to enjoy in the area & has maps & information on what ever suits you, and he is so friendly, thoughtful & kind that he is everyones perfect dad.
There are also Kayaks that are free to borrow, so you can row the short distance to the sand bank. It is the most stunning scenery, peaceful & exciting as you paddle totally alone & look for the wonderful shells, your ultimate prize being a Pansy shell. When you get back, you will find a bucket of hot water & towel waiting for you. We felt so happy there that we stopped longer than intended. We were on a road trip, but if we had arrived there first I am not sure we would have done the trip at all.
Thank You Kes, from your friends in England.

Milkwood Manor is a perfect guest lodge in Plettenberg Bay( practically in the sea!).Has stunning ocean views with comfy and spacious rooms with a large balcony .

The cooked breakfast was nice sat watching the waves,we had dinner in their Lemongrass restaurant located in the same place which was exceptional fine dining with fantastic service. £60 for three courses,wine,tip and drinks (excellent value)

Whilst in Plett Bay you must go and have a walk on the beach which is both stunning and refreshing.If you looking for pressies nip down to the global village.

The location of the hotel surprised us, the sounds of the sea were soothingly in a hotel room. But at the same time all the sounds of the corridor, disrupting the atmosphere of our two honeymoons. The atmosphere was like living in a basement. The only minus comes from the fact that we are not taken into account at all of our honeymoon!

The house and its location is amazing but it felt like we were living in the basement while the owners were away. The owners live overseas and staff come in and serve you breakfast and that is about it. If you were with a big group it would be fine but when you are a couple it feels quite odd when all the bedrooms on the higher floors are locked and you are there on your own. This might be a five star property but certainly not for service or amenities.
