We discovered Milkwood Manor on our trip down the Garden Route and my wife and I wished that we had the time to stop and spend a few more days. It is positioned right on the water's edge where the Keurbooms River meets the sea. Set apart from the rest of the town, it is only minutes from the village....

This is a lovely Guest House in a georgeous setting in Plettenberg Bay. Our beautifully decorated and spacious room had a terrace facing the sea, were we spent the afternoon reading. The staff is very friendly and we felt so taken care of. One morning we borrowed the sea kayaks (for free) and when we got back a bucket of...

Plett itself is a fascinating centre and MM showcases the area beautifully .During our 4 night stay in November 2011 we had a corner bedroom ,...

We stayed here with friends for 4 nights from 13th November. We had two first floor rooms overlooking the sea. The rooms were beautiful, spacious and spotlessly clean as were the bathrooms. We had balconies overlooking the sea and the balcony chairs and tables were actually painted during our stay. The car was washed by Ernest every morning whether we...

Six years ago, you'd find Milkwood Manor and its lush garden surrounded by trees at the edge of a beach. An incredible river flood some four yeas ago washes all that away. Now, the river and sea endlessly meet at the feet of this remarkable hotel. Brilliantly situated and surrounded by sea, the Milkwood Manor offers an extraordinary experience to...

The Milkwood Manor is really a wonderful place to stay in Plettenberg Bay. The building is beautiful and nicely situated at the coastline. The rooms are beautiful and spacy, with balconies at seaside. We most enjoyed the restaurant here, one of the best places we've been in South-Africa! Great food, great wines and excellent service! Also the service of the...

We happened upon Milkwood Manor by chance whilst driving the Garden Route. Unfortunately we could only stay one night due to our schedule. Our room was very good with a staggering view of the beach - enjoying the dawn from our balcony patio was wonderful. Breakfast was good. Kees was most helpful & runs (unobtrusively) a very tight ship. We...

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
