We stayed a couple of night at this amazing hotel situated right on the waterfront at Plettenberg Bay. We found it quite by chance. We had a great upstairs room with balcony views over the ocean. Very clean and modern. Breakfast was in a great location at the restaurant buy the water. Good quality except for the bacon which was...

We stayed in this hotel for two nights during our 1 week trip along the Garden Route. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the restaurant Lemongrass where breakfast is served has a terrace with an amazing view onto a lagoon. There a lot of things to do in and around Plettenberg so you can easily stay there for 4-5...

This must be the best hotel in Plettenberg - the rooms are spacious, bright, very clean and well decorated. We booked a deluxe ocean view room and were given just that - a comfortable, apartment sized room, with simply the best views in Plettenberg - direct views across the lagoon, the inlet, the beach stretching out to the ocean -...

We spent 2 nights at Milkwood in room 4. The room was large but plainly furnished. The bathroom was quite small & no bath in it. The patio had wonderful views. The downside was that it was on the ground floor leading off the reception & restaurant so was very noisy with people talking & walking on the wooden floors....

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
