The Olive Grove B&B on the Akaroa peninsula South East of Christchurch NZ was a wonderful find! The hosts, Chris and Annette Moore, could not have been more friendly and helpful. Our room was pleasant, with a door that opened on to a porch with a great view of hills and bay in front of us. The B&B is located... More

Had 2 nights here and what a treat. Lovely room with good sized balcony with stunning bay views. Delicious breakfast with super cooked food and great fresh fruit variety. Olive oil tasting as the hosts are the champion makers in all of NZ. They are charming people who make you feel really welcome. Highly recommend! Many thanks

This was our last night in New Zealand and we found a pretty two storey residence in a peaceful hilly setting. Our room was not one of the two with water views and was more a family room with a central ensuite shared by the main bedroom and a second bedroom with twin beds. Without this second bedroom that I... More

My wife and I stayed in the Frantoio Room on the second floor with our patio looking out over Robinson Bay. Our view included acres of greenery along with pastures of sheep. It was a quiet and peaceful experience for the three days we stayed there. Olive Grove is conveniently located 10 minutes from Akaroa. Annette and Chris saved the... More

My partner and I stayed here for a nights getaway over Easter. We were blown away with the service. Greeted by the owner Chris lovely and friendly who showed us to our room. He organised a private Olive Oil tasting on our balcony with beer and wine and drove us into Akaroa so we could have dinner. The room was... More

Only had one night here unfortunately but it really is a beautiful place. Sitting on the balcony outside our room with such stunning views was second to none. Pre-dinner wine and nibbles including their home-made olives was a nice touch. Breakfast perfect. Run by a lovely couple and only about 5 mins out of Akaroa so an excellent situation. And... More

We had a very comfortable room with balcony and fantastic views ... and the rest of the building was equally high quality. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful ... and breakfast was delicious - a real delight.. It was a short drive into town for evening meals etc.

A bit of the beaten track but quiet and very similar to where we live. A short drive into town to get food/drink in evening. Room clean and quiet but bed was hard, not my best night's sleep. Breakfast was nice with other guests, (4) with a quick look around the Olive Grove where the site has won awards for... More

The Olive Grove B&B is situated about 10 minute drive from Akaroa, up in the hills looking down onto Robinsons Bay. Our room had a terrace where we enjoyed some of the olives and oil that Annette and Chris produce over a glass of wine. We stayed three nights here and chatting with Annette and Chris felt like talking to... More
