Extremely friendly crew here, actually entire family. Extremely helpful and friendly, very accommodating. Glean and comfortable accommodations, great breakfast with lovely porch area for meeting friends and other guests. Quiet and away from city center but easy walk. I look forward to staying here again next time I'm in New Zealand.

We enjoyed our 8 night stay here, which was our base for day hikes, Doubtful Sound, etc. The location is on a quiet street near the boat dock and lakeside path and a ten minute walk to everything in the lovely town of Te Anau. We stayed in the front room, which was spacious, sunny and very clean. Although it...

We stayed in Te Anau for a couple of days for the Doubtful sound cruise. Shakespeare was definitely a value-for-money option. Good for people who do not necessarily want a lake view from their rooms. Rooms are basic, yet has all that you can ask for and is spacious enough for two. There is car parking available for 6-7 cars...

We stayed here for several nights in Oct. and on the 2nd night we were booked on the Doubtful Sound overnight cruise. As the B&B was not full the owners allowed us to leave our luggage in the room and the car in the lot without charge. How generous of them to do that for us. We had a large...

Our party of 3 couples greatly enjoyed our two night stay at this B&B, even though the weather interfered with our plan to enjoy a long visit at Milford Sound. Ray is a very welcoming host and a great cook - we all enjoyed his hot breakfast. The rooms are comfortable, although one was small. Ray's recommendations for local sights...

We were only here for a flying visit having driven from Lake Wanaka, with the plan to get up early to get to Milford Sound then travel on to Queestown.
