Walking distance to everywhere - lake, town. Easy parking. Very well presented - spotlessly clean with high standard of decoration and furnishings. Incredibly friendly and welcoming owners :)

Shakespeare House was such a lovely place to stay. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was super clean and the room itself was quite spacious. Nathan was extremely helpful in providing us tips and updates about our trip to Milford Sound, even giving us brochures and recommending scenic stops along the way. Breakfast was delicious and there were so many food options. Having breakfast available made it a great start to our day! All in all, a lovely place to call home for a day. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Te Anau.

On first look the property doesn’t appear to be of a high standard. But don’t be fooled the managers are lovely, very helpful & welcoming. The rooms have been refurbished are very clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend 👍

Staff so friendly with total customer service!

Both Liz and Nathan were great! Our television wouldn't work (Melbourne Cup Day)and after us all trying to get it to go to no avail, Liz invited us to their premises so that we wouldn't miss the Cup. Great customer service. Nathan also cooks a mean breakfast! PS Nathan got the television working!
