We stayed 4 nights, Peter and Daphne cooked three of those nights and after 6 weeks of traveling about NZ it felt like home and better even, home with a Chef and sous Chef. The location is breath taking, the lavender room was beautiful, the stars were amazing and the food was perfect, The veggies from the garden were grand!... More

We stumbled across Uliveto online; we didn't want to stay in central Hamilton and Raglan was fully booked for the holiday weekend. It was no more than 20 minutes drive south of Hamilton and easy to find. Daphne and Peter were great hosts, offering us to join them for a drink on arrival. It was the first night of our... More

My husband and I stayed with Peter and Daphne on our last day in NZ (January 9, 2015). We wish we would have found this B&B earlier - we would have loved to have stayed for a couple of days. Their lovely home is in the country, a few minutes outside of Hamilton. It is very easy to find and... More

Daphne and Peter were wonderful hosts! Fantastic, relaxing stay. Great to be offered dinner, and to be able to drink without having to drive home! Very handy to visit old friends in Matamata. Ensuite room was spotlessly clean, with great views. I have already booked to go back next year.

Uliveto is located in the countryside about 15 mins outside of Hamilton. Peter and Daphne were wonderful hosts and were very kind. The breakfast was extensive and delicious. We didn't have dinner at Uliveto, but were offered a glass or two of red by the fire when we returned. Our ensuite room was warm and spacious and the bed was... More

We had a perfect stay. Clean quiet room and bathroom. Very kind hosts and even gave very good back- road directions to Mystery Creek Field Days. Great breakfasts. Would recommend this as a perfect place to stay which is on the right side of Hamilton to avoid traffic congestion.

We enjoyed having you both to stay for the Fieldays. Discussing the olives with you was very interesting; it's always good to hear other people's ideas and opinions. Uliveto Countrystay is well situated for the Hamilton Airport and the Farming Fieldays, making driving too and from the site exceptionally easy. Many thanks for your great review; it's much appreciated. Maybe... More

About 15 min outside of Hamilton in a beautiful country setting amongst olive trees, Daphne and Peter offer a very comfortable, spotlessly clean B&B with wonderful friendly hospitality. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it without hesitation.

We stayed with Daphne and Peter Searle in August 2013. They have a lovely small B&B set among olive trees and a landscaped garden. Daphne prepares a nice dinner and breakfast, which adds to the charm of the secluded get-away. We stayed here as a convenient halfway point between visits to the Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton in Matamata.
