Seaside Accommodation in Plettenberg Bay…
The Georgian-styled building is designed for spaciousness, reflecting the vast unlimited landscape surrounding it, without sacrificing its ambiance or intimacy. This is epitomized by the airy double-storeyed foyer, the large yet cosy restaurant, the private patios and balconies, and large breakfast and sundowner terrace, that afford spectacular views over the Indian Ocean, Keurbooms River Mouth, Keurbooms Lagoon and Tsitsikamma Mountains.
This is the third time we have stayed at Milkwood Manor and would have
no hesitation about going back for a fourth/fifth……… We have always found the owner, Kees, to be the perfect host and gentleman, ensuring that our every comfort and needs were met. We found the room to be excellent quality and comfortable, breakfast was served by the very welcoming and courteous staff. All in all, we would recommend this Hotel to anyone who visits Plettenberg Bay.

There is a sense of vastness and freedom, not easily achieved elsewhere. But then, the property forms a peninsula, protruding into the river mouth, and has no neighbours but nature. The eleven rooms offers guest the ultimate experience in seaside accommodation and the essence that is Plettenberg Bay is surely epitomised by the fresh ocean breezes and sea sound scape.
Guests enjoy relaxing on the terrace, watching the birdlife and especially the sea and mountains as they change all the time. The ocean’s white-crested waves enter the lagoon’s mouth directly in front and interact with the lagoon, forming a wild cauldron as they clash at one moment, or peacefully mingling with each other six hours later, leaving a surface as smooth as a mirror.
In high season, there is in front of the Manor the additional spectacle of different boats entering the ocean or returning, and the fishing activity in the lagoon itself. This is not a place to easily get bored!
