Had a 1 night stay here on a chilly August evening. The Inn is in a prime location overlooking the Devonport waterfront and about 2 minutes from the main street and 3 minutes to the ferry to Auckland city.
The decor would suit those who enjoy the ambience of a bygone era and has been sympathetically restored and decorated. Yes it is a little jaded around the edges but this adds to the charm.
We were warmly welcomed by the owners son and 2 gorgeous chocolate cocker spaniels who were so friendly.
Our room was on the first floor up a lovely gracious staircase and had a small balcony overlooking the garden. Room was large and well appointed and the radiator heating made it warm and cosy. There were no electric blankets on the bed and we thought we may be cold but we weren't.
There was a Rata tree just outside the window and we saw so many Tuis really close up, it was lovely.
The bathroom was very spacious with double sinks and free standing shower. There was hand wash but I must say I prefer soap and the soap supplied is the smallest I have ever seen, about 1 inch square!
There was complimentary tea & coffee and port and sherry supplied in the room also.
We were able to park at the Inns car park but there are limited spaces.
Parking on the street is timed so you may have to park a bit of a distance away if you wanted to go to Auckland on the ferry.
The bed was antique so quite creaky when 1 of us turned over.
The next morning breakfast was served in a sunny kitchen come dining room. I had the continental which included home made muesli, yoghurt and fruit and toast from the Devonport stone mill bakery I believe. Hubby had the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
We enjoyed our stay and felt very comfortable and at home . We would stay again even though this is priced at the higher end of the B & B market.
