              Stunning and Value for Money”

              Spacious, comfortable and value for money

              AGAIN we were not let down by the Agoda experience. 34 On Milkwood was stunning, safe and a beautiful couples experience.

              Just loved the warmth of the staff, so clean, bedroom spotless, view from bedroom to die for. ”

              The staff were amazing, security excellent, the breakfast was delicious. The only problem we had was the lock on the bedroom door was faulty, very difficult to open and close. I would recommended milkwood guest house to all my friends. Thankyou .

              The guesthouse is located at a safe place. The manager Nicky gives very helpful information. The house is clean.

              Our room was small and also the bed was rather small, we slept somehow. Somehow this house is lacking liveliness. The staff is kind of stiff. Some decent music during breakfast could loosen up the atmosphere. The manager Nicky is a wonderful radiant person and gave us plenty of very helpful information about good restaurants and made sure we will end up at a safe place in Umtata. Hopefully Nicky will be able to change the dull atmosphere in this guesthouse. Thank you Nicky, you are still in our hearts.

              The owner is unprofessional and arrogant in dealing with clients’s problems and needs. For example, I had booked 2 rooms to accommodate 4 people since each room was advertised to accommodate 2 people, but on getting there we were told each room can only take one person unless we pay more money, implying we had to pay times 2 the advertised price. We tried to reason with the owner But he’s very arrogant, very rude and has a “go to hell “attitude. I think he has a racist tone as well . I was hosting relatives based in the UK and had driven almost 600km to this guest house but we were compelled to leave the place regardless of the fact that we had fully paid, we couldn’t bear the attitude ,we were forced to leave and find an alternative. His unprofessional attitude is terrible for the hospitality industry and Agoda should not allow them on their site coz they damage the good brand that Agoda represent

              location, safety, clean

              On arrival, we were greeted by staff and a menu thrust at us to choose our breakfast for tomorrow. We were not shown to our room just pointed in the general direction. Thr room was very cramped. No toilet roll holder in bathroom, toilet ran all night. The TV channels are very poor. Breakfast was microwaved, overcooked,rubbery eggs and bacon. On the second morning we requested scrambled eggs only to be told that we couldn't have them because the food had already been cooked, so it would seem that what is originally ordered you are stuck with for thr rest of your stay. On the second night of our visit we returned at about 10 pm and had to stand in a cold carpark and sign in our details on the guards log sheet (wierd). There was no evidence of any management during our stay and the kitchen staff were very surly. We will not be back,

              IT was fine for an overnight stay.........not good for a holiday. room is too small, no covered parking, yard is small. too close to neighbours and they have view into premises, therefore not private enough.

              Was disappointed coz it was a booking for honeymoon couple that's wat I requested for. I had a feedback it was one adult. If itz for a honeymoon couple means 2 adults. Which had costed me an extra cost and yet not to my knowledge that it was booked for a honeymoon couple. Seriously disappointed. Will not recommend anyone after this mishap at your guest house. ☹️☹️

              We were delayed due to unforseen circumstances but the facility was flexible to accomodate us at 22hrs30. The food was great! The staff was very friendly and professional! The location was just what we needed for a breakaway weekend. We had booked the SUPERIOR room which was private with an amazing balocony facing the pool. I wouldn't mind going back one more time!
