Paradise in the southern alps.
The Shakespeare House is a delightful B&B with the most gracious and knowledgeable hosts. The unit was spotless, we were able to use the kitchen in the evening and the location makes access easy to the best Te Anau has to offer.

8/10 Very good

We really loved the hospitality from Liz and Nathan. The cooked breakfast was excellent. The only feedback would be a bit more space to place toiletries for the bathroom sink.
