“Very clean and comfortable”

We really enjoyed our stay...room was very clean and comfortable....and Ray could not have been more hospitable. The breakfast was great....and we would definately stay again if ever over that way.

Ray, our host, puts a lot of effort into running this B & B. He booked us a trip to Milford Sound with a local company that proved to be excellent. Our early start for this trip meant the more than adequate breakfast Ray cooked was much appreciated. Our room was clean if a little on the small side & quite dark & a newer television would be a definite improvement. A communal fridge was plenty large enough for all guests.Dusky Street is a quiet road but near the centre of Te Anau.

Two nights spent here in February. The room was very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was great - no need for lunch! Ray was very friendly and we would definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night as a stop off point on the way to Milford Sound. The location was excellent as it was a short drive to Te Anau and very close to the lake.

The room was clean, comfortable and cosy. It was a cold night so the electric blanket came in handy. We have a fantastic sleep and woke to a superb breakfast. The omlette was divine.

All in all a very good B&B suited to all those travelling to Te Anau or Milford Sound.

Stayed at Shakespeare House B and B on 3 separate occasions In Feb....from the moment we arrived we were made very welcome, rooms spacious and spotless, very comfy beds, best ever breakfast...loved Margarets homemade muffins, and Ray cooked us a delicious breaky each morning. amazing garden, just so pretty. Nothing was a trouble for Ray, such a friendly host. Great location.Cannot shower our hosts with enough praise, highly recommend Shakespeare House B and B to anyone and everyone!

Room Tip: All good, but the room at front a bit larger and sunny

we stayed here for two nights and our host Ray was very friendly and helpful. It was a short walk into town and an even shorter walk to the lake. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast, prepared by Ray himself, delicious. It was a good location for our trip to Milford Sound, best place in Te Anau!

Room Tip: We were in the Shakespeare Room.
