The friendly and informative hosts provided a deliciously fresh, and large, breakfast. Milton House is out of town but a short walk to the esplanade at St Claire's where there are a number of...

Milton House is a beautifully refurbished mid-1800's home that has kept the charm of the period while providing all the modern conveniences that traveler's appreciate. We stayed there 3 nights on a recent trip to Dunedin and honestly they were the best 3 nights of our whole 3 week trip. The room was spacious and had a beautiful view of...

I enjoyed very much staying here. The location is quiet and sunny, close to the beach and the saltwater pool. The house is surrounded by a garden. Breakfast and afternoon tea is served by the fireplace, with nice treats like newspapers and a bottle of wine. Ali is very welcoming and friendly. Recommended.

The hosts, Ali and Richard were extremely helpful with directions, suggestions of things...

Room was very nice and comfortable, friendly couple and amazing food. Well worth walking down to the beach where there's a heated open air pool to help wake you up in the morning. We really enjoyed our time here and highly recommended it when in Dunedin.

A weekend away to catch a great game of rugby in Dunedin's superb covered facility. We stayed at Milton House and couldn't help but be impressed by the friendly greeting, attention and service from Ali and Richard. What a great place to stay in every way. We'd all be back there in a heart beat!
