We had a lovely 3 night stay the room was comfortable with a view of the bay. Watching the waves come in was great. The only downside was that it did not have any facilities for drinks during the day until 6pm when the adjoining restaurant opened. There was a bar/restaurant across the beach which was excellent when we wanted a drink after our day out. Kees was very helpful suggesting places to visit and spoke to all the guests each day at breakfast. This is a great location and very good guest house. The only down side is if you have an upstairs room there is no lift so carrying suitcases up the stairs can be a struggle. Ask for a downstairs room if this would be a problem.

Milkwood Manor is a wonderful B&B in a prime location with wonderful views of the Outinequa Mountains. Sand on Lookout Beach has returned in the last few months so is right outside the hotel. There is a very good restaurant at the hotel and the Lookout Restaurant is a short walk across the beach. The staff were friendly.The manageress was particularly helpful and knowledgeable about anything we wanted to know about in the area. We had a back room so only a view of the sea on the balcony. I would definitely ask for a sea view. The service of our room could have been improved but otherwise a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room upstairs

We found the Milkwood Manor to be a hidden treasure of Plettenberg Bay. Cozy, friendly and clean, and with a boutique feeling to it, plus a very helpful staff, we felt as if we were home. We got a sea view room so it was very nice to sit in our balcony and watch and listen to the ocean.

Room Tip: Try to go for a sea view room.

Milkwood Manor at Plettenberg Bay is superb. Would not stay anywhere else. Beautiful location overlooking the beach, rooms very comfortable with everything you need. Kees, the owner is so helpful, and a wonderful host. The staff are lovely, breakfasts and evening meals excellent.
We had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the beach. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 6 was excellent, apart from balcony overlooking the ocean, it also has a side window which also overlooks the ocean.

My question would be simply, why stay in a hotel? Knowledgeable owners, amazing views with a stunning sunrise and lovely rooms. Great place to say in Plett right on the beachfront with a great adjoining restaurant.
