“victorian high tea at peace and plenty inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2011

Dear Judith
I am writing to convey my thanks for the lovely Victorian high tea my mother and I enjoyed at the peace and plenty inn on Sunday. Every year I endeavour to find somewhere ‘different’ to take my mum to for mothers day as it is often difficult to buy presents that she actually wants or doesn’t already have.
She was so impressed by what you had created at the peace and plenty inn, we both were really. The attention to detail and the special touches like the glass of bubbles and the heart shaped shortbread along with the option to wear a beautiful hat just added to the whole wonderful experience. May we commend you on the food and choice of selection. Often in a ‘prepaid’ situation the food presented is of small quantities but the amounts of food you supplied was perfect and everything was very fresh and tasty. My mum took brochures home to show her friends and we are already recommending your establishment to those we know. It was lovely being able to wonder through your gardens also. You have the inn presented beautifully and you and your staff had clearly worked hard to have everything prepared to a high standard on the day.
Many thanks for all your efforts it has created happy lasting memories and we look forward to returning to enjoy again sometime

We didnt want the hustle and bustle of the city, with a ritzy modern hotel suite. We booked this weekend away for our anniversary, the Peace and Plenty Inn was just perfect. Located right on the beachfront, and within a few mins walking distance to all shops/restaurants and amenities. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, victorian era - just what we were looking for. Romantic, escapism, TOTALLY relaxed and Judy and Stanley were the perfect hosts. We plan to return in 6 months, and cant wait to do so.

Room Tip: Windsor Room, has the lovely big bath.

I was very unorganised this year with Mother's day. My partner and I decided to take my mother out for High tea this year. So in normal fashion, I tried to make a reservation 3 days before Mother's day. I called many places and had some rude rejections from varied venues. But Jude at Peace & Plenty was very delightful over the phone, and was accommodating to my last minute bookings.

On arrival, we were greeted by Jude and had a chance to select fashionable hats for the ladies to glam up for the High Tea event. The environment was rich of what was needed to set the tone of an old english High Tea afternoon. From the tea sets to the room decor. It was a travel back in time and gave the whole affair that cherry on top.

If anyone were looking for a memorable experience during High Tea, I'd reccommend the Peace & Plenty Inn - Devonport.

Thankyou Jude
We look forward to having another memorable visit with you and the team.

Judith Machin and her team do a lovely colonial afternoon tea (they even provide hats for the ladies). Not only is the premise charming and homely, but the food is in a style that brings back memories of a time when style and elegance went hand in hand. The cost was commensurate with the quality of service, food and beverage provided. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted to do something special and unique for some one important within their circle of family and friends in a relaxed personal and friendly location.

A fabulous property very conveniently located for Devonport and the ferry to the city centre. Judith was a great host and very accommodating for the last day of our visit to NZ, crowning the postive experience we enjoyed at all, bar one, of the places we stayed during 4 weeks. Many thanks!

I have used Peace and Plenty several times the last year. The rooms are all different and decorated with passion and in good taste and they are very cosy and spacious. A delicious breakfast is served in the beautiful dining room. The ferry to Auckland harbour is very close and adds to this luxury B&B:s advantages.

Wonderful service, hospitality and attention to detail. Our room was delightful and the location was so convenient, peaceful, yet within reach of everything - Devonport is really a lovely spot and so close to the CBD. Our breakfasts were outstanding. The ambience of this property is amazing.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms had views and balconies
