Situated on the shores of Knysna Lagoon, Under Milkwood Resort is set amongst milkwood trees with the Outeniqua Mountains in the background.
Score from 32 reviews Exceptional
The tv in the room was not working and only a poor vision of SABC 3. No DSTV or sports channels, you are forced to join the crown in the lobby to whach the rugby which was very annoying and loud or were forced to go to another venue to watch sport which defeated the object of a quiet weekend.
It was in a beautiful setting and the restaurant and deli was lovely. I would back to the Knysna riverside lodge but i would not stay in the cottage. The cottage has great potential if re-done probably.
The cottage was an after thought with none of the light switches matching and the geyser broke so we had no hot water but these things happen. The accommodation was very disjointed. It was clean but had a funny/ mould smell. The microwave had a European plug but no adapter. It was cheap so i guess it is excepted. But I would go back.
The peaceful atmosphere
Friendly staff, comfortable room, good restaurant.
GPS unable to find. Street signage.
Quiet location, nice view.
Sadly, it didn't come close to the web site promise. We left an hour after checking in. It seemed isolated and old fashioned. Desperately needs updating. Sad and unpleasant.
We liked the size of the suite, the facilities comprising the restaurant with friendly staff and the swimming pool. Our suite provided a view of 'Phantom Forest', and we saw Vervet-Monkeys, Deer and Guinea-Fowl.
Wi-Fi was not available as indicated. The suite did not afford the river-view as we requested. Maintenance of the suite was not at the required level: leaking gutter on our deck, ceiling fan inoprative in the bedroom and various light-bulbs were not functioning. We have requested an invoice which has not been received as promised despite further requests.
The restaurant with the hotel die gieter was very good. Overall, a nice couple run the lodge.
The room could have been cleaner.
Rooms very dusty and generally un clean pool was like pee soup light fittings not working general maintenance very poor out door furniture falling apart bathrooms and shower not clean no soap or toiletry bits no coffee or milk in room.for the amount charged this establishment should have been faultless I have stayed at many guest houses in South Africa and this was the third worst,but the worst one we actually stayed at,over all a mark of 2 out of 10 would be a fare score on our experience.
View and location
Dishonesty... one of the rooms did not have a shower. And we paid extra with Bookings for Full breakfast. When we got there we were handed vouchers with a $ limit, then at breakfast we were only offered one selection as the compensation for the voucher and the offering was for less then the voucher was worth totally dis honest and very dissapointed
Welcoming staff, fantastic views across the River Valley, spacious rooms, very good cooking in the hotel restaurant which also had wonderful views, comfortable beds
Very friendly owners
room service didn't happen
Lovely views with nice pools and pleasant restaurant on site
Overpriced unit with very basic facilities and not serviced which is not acceptable at R2000 per day. Unit was musty with hard wooden beds and not suitable for a long family stay - very dissapointing for the price.
Beautiful setting and surroundings and lovely rooms - a wonderful place to relax! The management is very friendly and hospitable and went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. The restaurant, food and waiters are tops!
Very quiet and great restaurant!
The first room they showed us was very dated and worn so they moved us which was alittle better but the place really needs updating.
The place is terrible
Cold, Damp, nothing but a converted toolshed.
