Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

John & Ping were excellent hosts & very welcoming. The house itself is set in beautiful gardens in which we could sit, while enjoying the early evening sunshine and a drink before heading out for an evening meal. The house is situated near Northlands Mall & there were restaurants & pub meals just a 5 minute drive way. The double bedrooms and bathroom were very comfortable and extremely clean. The continental breakfast was perfect for us (2 couples). It is also not too far away from the airport. Would definitely stay again!

Really lovely home-stay style experience. John and Ping made us feel very welcome and were wonderful hosts. The room was probably the nicest room we had on our whole South Island Trip, especially with the spa bath!

I was a bit worried whether the rooms would be up to my standards given that I am a bit picky with hotels and the price is quite modest compared to the price we paid for other B&Bs/Hotels during our stay in the south island of New Zealand. However, it turns out that the rooms are great - spacious, modern, clean, comfortable and so is the bathroom (which comes with a SPA bathtub!). It is probably the best value B&B we have ever stayed with.

The hosts John and Ping are friendly and accommodating. It was a shame that we arrived late night and left early the other morning so we did not have much time talking with John and Ping. But from the brief chat we had with them, we could already feel their warmth and hospitality. It is also worth mentioning that they only take one group of guests per night to preserve the guests' privacy and avoid any unwanted disturbance from other unknown guests.

Me an my family stayed at the Olive House B&B for 4 night.
Lovely and welcoming hosts. We really enjoyed staying there. It added a lot of value to the Christchurch experience. The hosts even came up with some great travel suggestions in the area.
Will definitely stay there again when we come back to NZ.

Even though we arrived late at night from Australia, our host (John) immediately made us feel welcome and 'put the kettle on' for a late night cuppa! The accommodation was prefect for us (2 couples) and the continental breakfast was more than adequate. We actually returned to Olive House at the end of our trip to once again be warmly welcomed by John whilst sampling some NZ grape juice! Olive House although out of the main CBD, is ideally placed to access the airport and/or to head anywhere north of Christchurch.

My friends and I stopped here during our trip of South Island for two nights. The setup here is ideal for 2 couples or a family with two children. Best part were the hosts. John was really interesting and helpful and his wife was very accommodating. They made us feel very welcome.

This is a lovely house in a pretty little oasis on the very northern fringe of Christchurch. The owners' charm perfectly complements the house. We were amazed to find that we were offered the use of two beautifully furnished, SUPER-clean bedrooms with a spacious bathroom between these two rooms. The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful. WE'LL BE BACK!

I must say that we were surprised when we pulled into the neighborhood and saw the house that was, at the time we booked, the #1 rated B&B in Christchurch on TA. But the lovely two bedroom suite (as John said, what they have is really more of a home stay...they only have one set of guests at a time so, if you are just one couple like us, you have the use of the full wing (two bedrooms, a large bathroom with a very large two....maybe four :).....person spa tub and an outdoor patio overlooking the beautifully manicured garden). And, as others have said, you are immediately treated as one of the family. John and Ping could not be more gracious or helpful. It is a bit outside Christchurch (probably a 20 minute drive without traffic) but most of downtown is still pretty devastated so, once we got our bearings, we were actually glad to be on the outskirts and not fighting city traffic for making day trips to the many beautiful places to visit in the surrounding areas (Banks Peninsula, Hamner Springs, etc.). So I guess it depends what you are looking for but, for us, the places we have loved most are the ones where we have connected with the people and they have been flexible about helping us make the most out of what we want to get out of our visit. Olive House was very high on that list. Besides, it is a GREAT value when you consider what you pay versus what you get! Thank you, John and Ping...we definitely hope to return :)

We spent 3 night with John and Ping. The house is 10 minutes drive from the airport but you do not hear it. It is 15 minutes drive to downtown. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. It is part of the house so you become part of the family. The patio is beautiful. John is a very warm man knowledgeable and willing to help. Ping is a unique woman.

Stayed here for 4 nights on my first visit to New Zealand and couldn't have been made more welcome. The house was spotlessly clean, beds were extremely comfortable and breakfast was yummy. The spa bath in the huge bathroom was a lovely luxury after a 30hour journey!
Would highly recommend for a couple or group of friends who want to feel like they are at home!

John and Ping made us so welcome and want for nothing, cannot thank you enough.
