After the stresses of London city life, I was looking for a location where I could de-stress and relax and I'm so glad I found the Lodge! One of the first things I remember saying to the owner (who met me on arrival before he went back up to Auckland) was that the pictures on the internet of the Lodge's...

This is an excellent place for relaxation. Situated high up above the beautiful Cooks Beach, this is a perfect place for your weddingnight, like we did. The owner Alex Morcom presents excellent service to his guests and you really get this "make yourself like home" feeling, that you wouldn`t get in a regular hotel. This place can be recommended highly...

If you want a true local experience then this is the place for you. Alex, our host, was a wealth of knowledge on where to go and what to do in the area. His home was warm, modern and very comfortable. We were very lucky to have the entire premises to ourselves which made our vacation feel even more special....

We went for two nights to Shakespeare (6 adults and one toddler). We found a beautiful house overlooking Cooks Beach and were greeted by Alex the host. He was very helpful whilst also giving us our privacy. The kitchen was well stocked and the house offered more than we needed in terms of services and all-in-all was a very enjoyable...

We had 2 great days at this unique place - one of the absolute best places we have stayed at in NZ. The house is in a great setting with wonderful views and facilities. Everything is high quality, tasteful and the service from the owner is great and friendly. I would highly recommend this place.

Shakespeare Cliff Lodge is a luxurious haven away from the stresses of a busy life. A retreat for mind & body thanks to the wonderful yoga, superb company, and the amazing meals served up by our charming host. All of which was set against the backdrop of the stunning decor of the Lodge itself, coupled with its commanding views over...

Shakespeare Lodge is the ultimate in a luxury beach holiday. The lodge itself is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. It is very clean and the rooms are more than generous.
