Ray was fantastic! Cooked us tasty omelettes the next morning over great conversation. Accommodation was super clean and modern. Within walking distance to town. Would definitely stay here again if we get to go back one day!

Due to large group booking we had the pleasure of staying in Wet Jacket Place the newest addition to Shakespeare House. Beautiful cosy and comfortable 4 bedroom home with the most stunning snow capped mountain view, easy walk to the lake. Every comfort of home, including Rosie the pet rabbit, trampoline and sandpit for the kids (if you have them)...

What a wonderful time we had in Te Anau staying at Shakespeare House B & B. Ray and family provide a warm friendly environment. Comfy spacious room and delicious cooked to order breakfast. Lots of local knowledge and advice if you need it. We will be back.

We LOVED this B&B. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a beautiful garden being tended to by the former owner, Margaret, who showed us to our lovely ensuite room (complete with a VERY comfortable bed, nice separate kitchenette area with fridge and sink, and rather spacious bathroom). The next morning, the new owner, Margaret's son-in-law Ray greeted us with a...

We loved our short stay at Shakespeare house! We found it was exactly what was advertised. Very clean and well maintained b&b, rooms were a good size and the bed was comfy. Ray the owner was really lovely and very helpful. We especially loved the home cooked breakfast and friendly conversation - it really felt like we were staying at...

We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet room. It was huge! The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. Breakfast was very tasty. The complex feels quite old-fashioned but considering its history (purpose-built in the 50s as holiday accommodation if I recall correctly) it's in pretty good shape. Of the three Te Anau B&Bs we stayed in, this was probably...

From the initial greeting this was like staying with friends. Margaret and Ray made us welcome in a well maintained, value for money place. The breakfasts were outstanding. If there is a better place to stay in Te Anau I would be very surprised.

Te Anau is not a place where you are going to find five-star accommodations. Let's face it, you're there because you love the South Island, and you're coming or going from some amazing outdoor activity. When you're coming or going, stay here. It's a short walk from the middle of town, and well worth it. If you want to share...

Warm and gracious hosts, Margret and Ray welcomed us like family. The owners of this comfortable and clean B&B, go out of they're way to make you feel at home. Ray prepares a wonderful cooked to order breakfast daily, and there are an assortment of cold offerings and freshly brewed teas and coffee. Although comfortable (very good bed) our room...

We stayed twice for a night and really enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the place. However, the best part of it is Ray's cooked breakfast. Try his kiwi omelette. A perfect start of the day. Rooms are simple but very clean, spacious and well looked after. Location is good, a stone throw from the lake and the center of...
