Hermanus was our third destination during our recent visit to South Africa. The drive from Franschoek was lovely and we were delighted to arrive at the Milkwood Lodge set in a pleasant residential area and close to the superb beach. Despite arriving at 11am, there was no problem in being given access to our incredibly large and impressive cottage with...

Thank you for your comments with regard to Milkwood Lodge. I am not exactly sure which room you stayed in because almost all of our rooms have two doors with access to the garden from either side. Hence the multiple keys. Sometimes two persons sharing a room may have booked different activities and then they do not have to ask...

One of the best Lodge we stayed during our vacation. The host was a very nice lady (Linda). She organized a lot of things for us even booking whale watching. She informed us about cape town and restaurants. We'll go definitely back to lovely Linda.

Milkwood Lodge really is a lovely guest house and my husband and I had a wonderful 3 night stay here. Linda was the perfect host, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. My husband Inadvertantly booked us 2 nights instead of 3 but linda was more than happy to accommodate us the extra night. Our room was spotlessly clean...

Milkwood Lodge is a fantastic place for a holiday. I like the selections of rooms and private houses. It feels like home and the rooms and property are beautiful. It's a very secure place so I could relax and not worth about anything. It's very close to popular sites and restaurants. I would go again very soon!
