Were were greeted by Mollie the dog as we pulled in to the farm. The house, that Pam and Ollie designed and help build themselves, is incredible. It is nicer than any hotel, hostel, or B&B we stayed at the entire trip. This was our first time staying in a B&B with other people (the owners) in the same house.... More

We stopped at Oliver's Farm Stay B&B, which is set on 20 acres, on our way from Dunedin to Christchurch. Because it is located right on the main road, we did not have to make a detour, which was very convenient. Oliver and his wife were wonderful hosts. They made us feel so welcome and offered us wine, tea, fruits... More

My family and I spent two nights in Oliver's Farm and it is absolutely the highlight of our 12-day travel in NZ. The house is so clean that we can't image that it sits in a farm with all kinds of cute animals running free range. The host is an excellent chef and uses some fresh ingredients picked right from...

Amenities is top. House is comfortable and warm. The animals are adorable. What makes the place stands out is the hospitality of the hosts. Both Ollie and Pam know how to make one feel at home and we are totally spoiled by their generosity, friendliness and warmth. Highly recommended.

Whilst driving down the coast of New Zealand we were looking for a relaxed stay and to get a bit closer to some of the animals. Our hosts were very welcoming, you feel like family friends rather than customers. They cook, chat, and show you around. The animals are delightful, who could not enjoy hand feeding calfs and baby lambs.... More

We arrived last minute, given the snow had meant a change of plans. We were welcomed with a homemade shin and vege soup and lovely local wine, accompanied by a cheese platter with the best pickled walnuts we had tasted (Ollie makes them each year).

First, I'm yet to come across a more hospitable host than Pam and Ollie. We enjoyed their warm, welcoming and gracious hospitality. Don't get me started on Ollie's brekky.
