Stayed for two nights and the hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts were a treat and an olive oil tasting on our balcony an unexpected delight. Our room was tastefully furnished and had plenty of space for luggage and clothing. Fantastic - a B&B with a bath (in the bathroom). A roll-top indulgence with views to... More

Really enjoyed our stay here, sadly only for 1 night. Nice comfortable room. Good bathroom. Very clean. Excellent breakfast. Very nice but not overbearing hosts. Would recommend and stay again (2 nights next time).

Had a wonderful stay at the Olive Grove. Would highly recommend. The extra touches like homemade lemonade, homemade biscuits and candles in the room were most welcoming. The rooms are of a very high standard in a peaceful location. The owners were very welcoming and the Eggs Benedict were the best I have ever had. Perfect for a weekend away... More

The "Olive Grove" was our first accommodation in NZ and the perfect start into our adventure. The hosts are very nice and attentively. We had a very comfortable and quiet room with an incredible view to the bay. The hosts produce their own olive oil. You can try and buy.

We would have stayed longer had we known how nice Akaroa and particularly this place to stay. Only about 90 minutes away from Christchurch it is a world of its own. The B&B is a great place, in fact the best place to stay in the area. The rooms have outstanding views , are large and very well appointed. Lovely... More

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
