We stayed at Birchwood on our way out of Milford Sound. Located just a few minutes from the town center, it has great access just off the main Milford road. The cottage was clean, spacious, and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this quiet little town. Highly recommended to all other travelers.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a one bedroom cottage with our 4 yo toddler - loved it. Very clean, warm and had everything we needed. No issues with noise even though it was on a main road. Just a 2 minute drive to the township with lots of options to eat out or to pop into the supermarket. Service was exceptional from booking to checking in and out. Thank you so much Ray and the lovely Sasha at the front desk for making our stay so enjoyable! Will definitely recommend to others.

Spent two nights at the Birchwood. Great location for a more relaxing Milford experience - so nice not to have to drive all the way back to Queenstown. The cottage was spotless and well presented. Loved the bed and linen

We were 6 friends staying in one of the three bedroom cottages. It was an excellent property and had everything we needed. Dee was very helpful on reception and gave us a warm welcome. Would recommend staying here as a group. The cottage was set on it's own just up the road from the main site so we had our own house all to ourselves. Very close to town which was a short walk.
