“What a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for the rugby, just one night, but would have loved to have moved right in! Ali & Richard are such wonderful hosts, so warm and welcoming. The open fire was Beautiful and the house has been done up to an exceptional standard. Would absolutely reccommend this to anyone looking for somewhere nice to stay a b&b is such a nice alternative to a hotel, lovely and close to St Clair - in my opinion the nicest part of Dunedin. Our room was big, the bed super comfy. Look forward to staying there next time!

Spent one night at Milton House (13 June 2012) for business with a work colleauge. I don't usually stay in B&B's when travelling on business, but this was an exceptional experience. Richard picked us up from the airport on a cold winter's evening. Excellent supper provided. Great room and super bed. Wonderful breakfast. Perfect hosts. Andrew H.

We recently stayed at Milton House, our first stop in New Zealand. It is a lovely b & b, run by a great host, Ali (Richard was out of town), who helped us plan our stay. An elegant and delicious breakfast was served in front of a roaring fire. Nice location near St Clair beach, just 10 minutes from downtown.

Milton House is a wonderful place. Ali and Richard are the most brilliant hosts and will ensure that your stay is perfect. There is no way that I can do justice to their customer service so I will try my best with ‘simply magnificent’.
The views from the rooms are quite remarkable and the proximity to the St Clair beach area is superb. If you want something special book into this beautiful historic house for a unique experience.

As soon as we arrived at Milton House and were ushered in by Ali and Richard we knew that we had picked the right B&B. We were made to feel at home straightaway. What a beautiful grand house. All the rooms were beautifully decorated and furnished. We had one of the top rooms which was large and very comfortable and gave us beautiful views of the city and the sea. It was only a short walk to the beach where there was a selection of eating places to choose from. Ali’s breakfasts were scrumptious with lots of her own homemade goodies on offer. Nothing was a bother whether it was discussing where to go or just catching up on the day’s events. Thank you Ali and Richard for making the start of our New Zealand holiday such a great one. It set the tone for the rest of our holiday.

Milton House is where we spent the night of our wedding and the first few days of our honeymoon. There is no better place to start a marriage.

Ali and Richard are the perfect hosts, they had thought of everything and then personalised it just for us. The house is stunning and we stayed in total comfort, enjoying the amazing views of the beaches and city. The morning after our wedding Ali calmly greeted 45 of our closest friends and family who arrived at Milton House for brunch and made them all feel welcome and at home. When we finally ventured out, it was a short walk to beautiful St. Clair Beach and local restaurants and bars. We simply cannot recommend Milton House in Dunedin highly enough – Richard and Ali made our stay magical and when you stay there, you’ll feel that way too.
