Judy is a very warm and caring hostess. Very elegant B&B in a great location and with spectacular rooms. All nice, clean and good atmosphere. Friendly in all ways and other guests seemed to appreciate this place also.
Just stayed at The Peace and Plenty and absolutely loved it. The uniqueness of each room, the attention to detail (sherry in each room) Breakfast was high quality and great choice. Would highly recommend staying there rather than Auckland, and it's only a short ferry ride, if you do want to spend time in the city.
We spent one night here. This is an old villa very nicely decorated. I believe it is 100 plus years old. All the decor is in the style of late 1800's to early 1900's. It is an amazing place to stay and the hostess is very gracious and charming. All the rooms have there own on suite. Breakfast is served in the dinning room where you are able to meet the other quests. Beds very comfortable.
A group of us came for a significant birthday celebration...while the hats were lovely and added to the atmosphere at the door, the staff were not so welcoming. The downstairs table was fully set with food, but in today’s market, the food was uninspiring and very difficult for anyone with a gluten intolerance. Butter was in packets and some of the food cases were from commercial packs rather than home made. Have definitely experienced better!
We had the high tea which was very disappointing. The food was stale - some kind of salmon pastry was the stalest. We arrived about 15 minutes earlier than our booking and was surprised to find all of our food was already on the table. The sandwiches had started to curl. The small cupcakes were stale with the topping being crusty. The meringue was so hard. The bacon and egg pie was quite bad. They advertise a large tea selection butt it is actually 6 or 7 so a small selection. We had two different teas - lemon and ginger and English breakfast but we were only given one tea strainer. This meant those having English breakfast had it slightly lemon and ginger. The lady in charge/ owner (unsure) was actually quite rude She thought it was ok to mention my husbands size and to stay he was ‘ touched in the head” - a very rude English expression. Overall very disappointed. There are better places to have afternoon tea and you will get fresh not stale food.…
