Very spacious rooms with accommodation for up to 8 people in the cottage we had. Our hosts were very friendly. We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity. Beds were comfortable and warm. Kitchen well-equipped and.laundry facilities were available.Tours to Milford Sound are provided by the hosts.

Spacious, tidy and comfy cottage for family of 5. Nice and helpful hosts. My 2 kids rated lighting up the fire place as one of their favorite activities during the 13 days trip!! Oh right, one more toilet will be great :)

Thank you for the positive review. The enclosed wood burner is a 'hit' with most people. The toilet is separate from the bathroom which is usually sufficient for 5 people.

what a lovely cottage we had, clean, nicely presented we had everything we needed. these people really know how to make their guests feel at home, the bed even had what we have at home - a feather mattress cover. i could have stayed for a week. would highly recommend this place for accommodation in Te Anau, walking distance to the lake and town. very helpful owners with suggestions on things to do in the area and travel times etc. thanks birchwood

Thank you for the nice review and the special mention of our hospitality. Some of the beds have feather covers, and some do not, as not everyone prefers them. Thankyou for the time you spent to write this review.

The Birchwood cottage is very warm and the beds are very comfortable. Rooms are spacious and my kids have lots of place to play. Only one problem is that for 3 bedroom cottage, there is only one toilet.
Ray is very helpful and warm hearted.
Facilities are comprehensive, so we did lots of laundry for the ski clothes. Worth come back.

Thank you for the nice review.
It is great to see positive comments for our accommodation and we really appreciate the score you have entered. The single toilet at this accommodation is a separate room, of which most are quite hapy about.

Our stay at Birchwood was wonderful. We loved our time in the cottage and I didn't want to leave. Ray and Leonie were fabulous hosts and the accommodation is first class from the fluffy robes to the free landline calls to home. A great benefit when you've been away for a couple of weeks.
Thanks Ray we will certainly be back!
