“EXPECTATIONS NOT DELIVERED”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

We stayed here for two nights as part of our three week discovery of the "real" Florida. On arrival our welcome from the owner was excellent and our accommodation in the converted cart shed/stables at the back was full of character although a little claustrophobic. A small tent attached to the stables was the smokers area which was not too pleasant. Overall the accommodation was clean and tidy - very difficult in an old property with so many trinkets about. The location was excellent- quiet road and few minutes walk to the centre of the action. However, it was the breakfasts and attitude that really let down this property. Our expectations, for the money paid and the "adverts", was for something really up market and different ("gourmet breakfasts" were advertised). The first morning breakfast was basically an individual quiche, orange juice and coffee - nothing special - served by a person who was not all communicative. We had to ask for some jam to go with the bread - this was scrapped from the last of a jar and brought out rather unwillingly - others then asked for jam but there was none left. The next morning's breakfast, prepared and served by the owner, was a disaster - Belgian waffles and not much else - several guests couldn't eat them - they were burnt - an added factor was that several guests requested an early breakfast but this was not accommodated. There was a deathly hush in the breakfast room and lots of unhappy faces...the coffee urn had run out of coffee and my wife asked for a top up - long face and unhelpful attitude. Overall this was not the experience we expected from a B & B that markets itself so highly....poor value for money

Not at all what a bed and breakfast should be. The Innkeeper was not there to greet us and never bothered to introduce herself in the morning. The breakfast was served cold, average at best (what was that little patty that looked like a breakfast cookie?) and late and there was no attempt to accommodate breakfast time. One chooses a bed and breakfast expecting a unique and personal experience with accommodations and breakfast a cut above the average motel. A personal greeting and friendly concierge service should be a part of that experience and when it is missing one feels they might as well have gone to Super 8.

We chose this Inn based on the reviews, and they were on target. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. We were close enough to walk to everything, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to have quiet evening when we chose. Be prepared for rich and delicious delights for breakfast. We had a stuffed french toast one morning, and waffles with sugar and syrup the next.

I was able to stay here for three nights a few weeks ago. I wanted to stay somewhere close to the plaza so I could go for walks at night and see the city all lit up for Nights of Lights. I'm very glad I stayed here. Ms. Glenna is a warm & hospitable innkeeper, who makes it all look effortless. Please don't cheat yourself out of the breakfast part of this B&B. I had crepes with a creamy cheesecake filling & warm blueberry compote, Belgian waffles, then a 4 cheese quiche. All these main courses over the days were accompanied with fresh fruit, coffees & teas, or honestly whatever you wanted to drink, all day long, at no extra cost. She sets a lovely dessert table in the evening as well. The Tranquillity Room opens to a huge private porch with a street view. You can see the college, but it was still a pretty quiet area. I spent a lot of time either on the porch or soaking in the jacuzzi. This beautiful old home is one of the most reasonably priced B&Bs in St. Augustine. There is a group of 4 B&Bs together on Cedar Street, but if you take the time to compare them, it's pretty much a no-brainer to pick the Peace & Plenty. I look forward to coming back in the not too distant future. Thank You Ms. Glenna for your warm welcome - and your generous offer to help me with my messed up luggage!

Room Tip: If you can come to St. Augustine during Nights of Lights, which is the end of Nov. through January...

The Inn is on Bed and Breakfast row, extremely convenient to the Lightner museum and only a few blocks from the historic district. In addition the hop on/off train stop is in front of the museum and tickets can be purchased across the street. Rooms are cozy and charming. My friends and I had 3 of the 6 available and they were all delightful. The carriage house is a short garden walk in the back. Breakfast is a delicious set meal as in cheese filled crepe one morning or quiche the next. Yogurt, cereal, juice, coffee/tea, are also available. A nice treat is wine/beer sodas are available at any time, sherry and port are served in the early evening with a scrumptious selection of two or three cakes. Young couples/college students were in the other rooms for New Years weekend.
