Peace and Plenty Inn, Devonport

In Auckland I am staying at the Peace and Plenty Inn. The Peace and Plenty is a charming B&B in a seaside town called Devonport, which lies across the bay from Auckland. From the Peace and Plenty it is only a short walk across the square to the ferry terminal that takes you into Auckland. The journey into Auckland takes about ten minutes to complete and there is a ferry every fifteen minutes during the day, with frequency going down to every thirty minutes in the evenings.

But about the Peace and Plenty. It is a very nice and cosy place to stay. All the rooms have their own bathroom and are decorated in a style that looks like it came straight out of a Laura Ashley catalogue. And there are some nice touches. There is a decanter with port and another with sherry in the room. There is also a water boiler to make tea or coffee, for which there are also some very pretty porcelain cups and saucers.

I do think that the Peace and Plenty is a place which typically women will enjoy more than men. Or perhaps that is just my stereotypes getting the better of me. But in any case gents, if you want to score with your better half with a romantic getaway, I think this might be the place for you.
