“Great Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

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.

Ali and Richard are remarkable hosts; from the cooking, local recommendations and interesting conversations, we really felt right at home. The location is great and the rooms quite nice. It was our nicest stay on the South Island and really kicked off our trip.

We had the most enjoyable stay at Milton House during the RWC and could not fault a thing.Our hosts, Richard and Alison were welcoming and helpful and made us feel part of the family. The bedrooms were nothing but luxurious furnished with a personal touch. With a the beach within a few minutes walk from the house we would recommend anyone to stay there should they be requiring accommodation in Dunedin.

The 4 of us had a wonderful stay with Ali and Richard in Dunedin. The house is enormous and comfortable, and finished to the highest standards. You can see its been a renovation done with a passion for the local area with plenty of local pieces and I've never slept in a comfier bed.
Unfortunately we didn't see as much of St Clair as we would have liked, being mainly ensconced in some of Dunedin's excellent pubs watching the rugby, but Ali was able to give us the low down on where to go and Richard was wonderfully helpful in offering lifts around town to help us out.
Ali's cooking is remarkable and breakfast was easily the highlight of the day and lasted most of the morning. Fresh home baking, a chest full of differing tea flavours, a drawer full of old music cassettes and a fridge full of beer gives you an idea of the welcome and the kind of stay Ali is hoping to allow you to enjoy.
The beach is on the doorstep and the views over Dunedin from the large double bed-rooms is excellent, with the bus passing at the end of the road.
You'll always remember your visit to Milton House

Room Tip: Next time I'm grabbing one of the MASSIVE front rooms on the first floor.
