Fantastic beach front hotel in Plettenberg Bay
Fantastic hotel and staff, ideal location with direct access to a wonderful, clean and virtually isolated beach!! All towels, loungers and sun brolly provided free - with a smile! Easy access to beach restaurant and bar or a 5 min drive to the centre for more bars etc... both worth a visit. Breakfast varied and delicious, bar open in the evening if you dont fancy venturing out. Worth also noting, complimentary secure parking!! Big thank you to the team at Milkwood Manor for making us feel very welcome :)

Situated right next to Lookout Beach, this is a superb hotel. The location, views, rooms, cleanliness were all first class, and the staff very welcoming and accommodating. Breakfasts are in the restaurant area, and the food very good. We were slightly out of season, so the restaurant wasn't open in the evenings - a pity because we read good reviews about it. However, there are numerous restaurants, cafes & bistros within a few minutes drive.

Brilliantly situated property with nice breakfast included. Local restaurants a walk across the sand so don’t dress up in flash shoes!

Perfect Christmas Eve
We had an amazing Christmas Eve at Milkwood Manor on the Sea! The guest house really took care of us and helped us with our bags, they give beach towels, and they even gave a little Christmas cake and present with the breakfast Christmas morning. The view at breakfast was amazing, and really everything about the stay was lovely! The room was great, comfy beds and great balcony with a view. Would totally recommend this place for a wonderful stay - we only regret that we had 1 night to stay.

Absolutely LOVED this accommodation! No regrets, wish we could have stayed longer. Try and get a room with a view, it’s worth it! Hotel is clean, staff is super friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious and hotel was quiet. Location is amazing, right on the beach. Would highly recommend this location to anyone!
