We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our stay at the Shakespeare House B&B. Ray is a really friendly and good host, and certainly can cook up a great breakfast! He also gave us good tips and advice on activities and food recommendations.The room we had was pleasant and comfortable, and having laundry facilities there was really useful. It was also... More

This was a trip of a life time for me. Probably not traveling to the other side of the world again. Stayed with two friends and the accommodations while pretty basic were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful! Heard the birds every morning. My friends' dog was ill while we were here and out hosts couldn't have been kinder making... More

We have been to lake Te Anau this April and lived this hotel for two nights. The owner is very friendly and provided us lots of useful travel info. The room is cleaned every day and very neat. We will be here next time!

A friend recommended we stay at Shakespeare House. We arrived early afternoon in May and our host was away. We made ourselves comfortable in the enclosed patio area and waited the few minutes until his return. What a friendly guy -- and he knows the local birds, which pleased my wife to no end. We stayed a delightful two nights... More

Positive Points: One of the best 'welcome' of out trip in NZ. The owner was helpful, funny, talked with you if you wanted to, left you 'alone' if you wanted too, adapted to you level of "NZ english":). Nice location, very quiet ! The place is a bit charming, each room has the name of one of Shakespeare's play. Negative... More

Stayed for 1 one night in a suite. Very nice, comfortable & clean. Ray was a great host, made me feel right at home. He does a fantastic cooked breakfast, made more enjoyable by the fact that he engages well with all the guests whilst cooking.

We stayed 4 nights total here and were delighted by the large comfortable tidy room and the friendly and great service. Eating a home cooked breakfast with great conversation each morning added to the bonus. Admittedly we were at the tail end of the summer season, however we were most impressed with Ray as our host, who made our stay... More

The heater wasn't working at first and so Margaret brought in a portable one for me immediately, Other than that, all other facilities are... More

This B & B served as our base camp while in the South Island. It was the most comfortable stay our entire trip. The rooms were large, inviting, and pristine. The host Margaret was engaging, helpful, and a pleasure to chat with. We were the only guests one morning and had an absolute blast talking with her. She and her... More

Everything was great about Shakespeare House, from its location just off Te Anau Lake, the friendly, efficient welcome by our host to the quiet, clean, comfortable and well- appointed rooms which amused us, being British, as they were all named after Shakespeare's plays and characters. After an excellent night's sleep we enjoyed the deliciously, generous breakfast in the friendly, family... More
