We stopped in because of the name, the look, and the claim as oldest brewery in NZ. We didn't stay here or eat here, just a quick beer that was good. Had a great chat with the bar tenders and they were very friendly.

The photos of the Shakespeare hotel paint a picture of a quaint little place and some reviews suggest it'll be a good place to stay. Certainly the ground floor pub/games area is good, and looks to be busy as a pub rather than just with...More

About
Description
1898 was the birth of the Shakespeare Hotel and ever since then it has been serving New Zealanders and travelers from around the globe with warm hospitality and wonderful flavours in food being New Zealand's More first Brewpub, with our own crafted beer, handcrafted from one of New Zealand's award winning Brewers and a mix of local NZ beers. The Location of the Hotel is excellent bang in the middle of Auckland City so close to all transport with buses, ferrys etc within a few hundred meters. The accommodation consists of 10 rooms which are basic with an en-suite and the beds are comfortable. This is not your typical boring hotel. The Shakespeare oozes character and if you are afraid of walking up a few stairs then probably not the place to stay. Each room is different and the rooms on the top floor are more modern than the lower floor. The Terrace Restaurant offers a great mix of cuisine, live music out on the al fresco dining deck overlooking the city every Friday. We are not 5 star in terms of accommodation but we are definitely 5 stars in a good quality Kiwi experience...we look forward to having you as our guests.... Less
