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...

We only stayed 1 night at the B&B and we regretted not being able to stay longer. The rooms and bathroom were amazing! The car wash on the morning of our departure was an especially nice touch. We will definitely go back to Milkwood Manor again and again...

Found Milkwood Manor by chance when we stopped at the adjacent restaurant for lunch. Very welcoming and helpful staff and friendly owner. A beautiful view from our room and a lovely breakfast the next morning. Would love to have stayed longer if we'd had the time.

We stayed for 2 nights at Milkwood Manor at the end of September, 2011. Upon arriving, we were greeted warmly by Margaret and Kase, the manager and the owner. Very sweet people. We were assigned to Room 2 which is right off the entrance and we were wary that it would be too loud. The room is nice, a bit...

It's so rare to get more than you expected from a hotel. Milkwood Manor delivered in every way - great service, beautiful, clean room, stunning views, and delicious breakfast.

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
