INTRODUCTIONShakespeare House B&B is the longest running Bed and Breakfast in Te Anau and probably because of it’s fantastic location. Conveniently located just a short distance from town, but close enough away to get a good night’s sleep. It’s also just a quick stroll to the lakefront.
Nathan and Liz purchased the Shakespeare House B&B in 2017. Nathan has always had a dream to own a bed and breakfast and this looked like the perfect opportunity. With the change of ownership, the couple wanted to better showcase the business online. The name ‘Shakespeare House’ came from previous owners and has stuck, with each room now taking on a name inspired by Shakespeare’s work and having a little kiwi Shakespearian anecdote.
CREATIVE BRIEFNathan and Liz wanted a website that showcased the businesses fantastic location and was super easy for international visitors to check availability and book a room. They also wanted to talk about the local area and have a place where potential visitors and current visitors could look for things to do that were a little different. Nathan and Liz also wanted to showcase the individual rooms and what people love and rave about when they stay at Shakespeare House B&B. Things like the comfortable beds, easy walking distance to town and the delicious cooked breakfast.
WEBSITETurboweb worked with Nathan and Liz to showcase what sets Shakespeare House B&B apart from other Bed and Breakfasts in the area. From the homepage, it’s easy for visitors to quickly check availability using the widget. They can also see a map, showing the convenient location of Shakespeare House B&B right there. The Rooms page showcases their accommodation, gives some Shakespearean background on each room, and also talks about the features of each room. From here, it’s easy to book via the ‘Book Accommodation’ button.
The website uses a booking widget and along with having reviews on the website (which is great for people to easily read) it also encourages people to leave a review on Tripadvisor or Booking.com. The Local Attractions is a great resource for the business, for potential visitors or current people staying. They can find out about all that the area has to offer and how Shakespeare House B&B offers a bit more than your ‘cookie cutter’ holiday but can help you create a holiday to suit you.
