For my birthday we had high tea at the lovely Stafford Villa. The setting, food, tea and service was excellent and Chris was a delight. The fresh scones and homemade jam were amazing and the sandwiches, savouries and sweet treats were delicious. Being served french bubbles on arrival and the beautiful house, furniture and heirlooms made the day really special.... More

From the beautifully presented high tea on arrival, chocolates, champagne, fresh cherries and fresh flowers in the room. And the highlight was the full breakfast. All served on fine china and sparkling... More

On our last night in Auckland we decided to splash out and stay at Stafford Villa. We used to live in the area, so knew it and were keen to try it out. It did not disappoint. Chris, Mark and Lily the dog, were very welcoming, our room was lovely and the breakfast was amazing. Definitely worth a stay.
