We stayed here our last night in Auckland after a 2 week Kiwi adventure before flying home to Canada. Great little place. Friendly staff. Quaint pub.
Be prepared to lug a suitcase up several flights of stairs though as there is no elevator.
Very old building, but has some ridiculous character and some characters running it too, super nice! Was wonderful to have a long hot shower and sleep in a real bed after a 2 week camper-van excursion.
Staff was helpful immediately and we were able to keep our bags behind the bar on the last day after check out while we trolled around the city.
Microbrew beer is great too!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 1898 was the birth of the Shakespeare Hotel and ever since then it has been serving New Zealanders and travelers from around the globe with warm hospitality and wonderful flavours in food being New Zealand's first Brewpub, with our own crafted beer, handcrafted from one of New Zealand's award winning Brewers and a mix of local NZ beers. The Location of the Hotel is excellent bang in the middle of Auckland City so close to all transport with buses, ferrys etc within a few hundred meters. The accommodation consists of 10 rooms which are basic with an en-suite and the beds are comfortable. This is not your typical boring hotel. The Shakespeare oozes character and if you are afraid of walking up a few stairs then probably not the place to stay. Each room is different and the rooms on the top floor are more modern than the lower floor. The Terrace Restaurant offers a great mix of cuisine, live music out on the al fresco dining deck overlooking the city every Friday. We are not 5 star in terms of accommodation but we are definitely 5 stars in a good quality Kiwi experience...we look forward to having you as our guests.... ... more less
