We had such a levels stay .... The rooms are very comfortable and spacious.... The small touches made our stay very delightful, from the homemade lemonade to the Christmas mince pie .... Breakfast is brilliant ... Would definitely recommend this as a stay in the country side

What a lovely surprise to discover this gem of a place. The bedrooms are decorated with taste, a good size surrounded by paintings by one of the owners . Beautiful views overlooking Robinson Bay near Akaroa. Five minutes drive into Akaroa where there are a good selection of restaurants. We loved the 'Little Bistro' which served fresh oysters and fish... More

This B&B is top of the line. We only stayed one night...wish we had longer! The owner lady was so very friendly and accommodating. We went at the end of olive season in their fall, and were the only guests this night. We arrived later than we had hoped, after dark, and she treated us to some wine and olive... More

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
