“Just like visiting family, with the kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

We stayed over Easter and enjoyed a nice bottle of wine in the garden, provided by David. excellent choice. The children loved the egg hunt in the morning in the garden. The ambiance is relaxed in a cosmopolitan way. Super clean and comfortable with Egyptian cotton, a must visit for the discerning traveller who has seen it all. Please realise that restaurant ambition soon and we are sure to return.

Wonderful Boutique B&B! Location wise, it is very convenient to explore the Central Otage Rail Trail and the Wineries.
Friendly hospitality shown by David & Andrea with beautifully restored Classic rooms and a bathtub to soak away the tiredness of a long tiring day. We just can't believe how neat and clean the room is.
If you are tired from sightseeing and just want to rest & relax, Clyde Cinema & bistro is just right across the road.

Olivers is a set of buildings on a large site, cleverly and stylishly restored and enhanced, around a central courtyard. We stayed at the Naylor room in the large historic villa but also viewed the stonewall stable rooms. They were all top quality - the challenge is to choose one. Our room had unobtrusive mod cons: underfloor heating in the bathroom and a walk-in shower with great pressure. Comfortable superking bed. Tranquil rustic surrounds. The outstanding website is a good representation of the facilities - the experience was even better. Excellent hosts. Very good breakfast featuring some local produce. Clyde itself is a small historic settlement, a detour well off the highway with charming cottages, gardens and stone buildings. Well suited to a leisurely stroll. Good restaurants within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: The website is a very good representation of the facilities. Next time we visit we would happily sta...

We spent our first night here before starting the rail trail. This place has been beautifully restored. The rooms were comfortable & our hosts Dave & Andrea put on an awesome breakfast.
Olivers was right next door to Cycle Surgery & walking distance to everywhere.

My husband, two teens and myself had a night at Olivers at the end of our Otago Rail Trail biking adventure. We stayed in the Davidson and Dunstan rooms. It was wonderful to stay in such a historic New Zealand building so tastefully brought back to life. The furnishings are exquisite. It was a wonderful experience to walk around the establishment soaking in all the antiques, art, books and beautiful detailing throughout. We loved our rooms. David and Andrea make you feel most welcome. The cooked breakfast served in the beautiful dining room was delicious. I would certainly recommend any of my friends or family to stay here. Luxury.

This was our 3rd stay with Andrea and David. They have made Olivers into my favorite New Zealand Hotel. The old buildings are lovingly restored and Andy and David are fantastic hosts. If you are in the area, make sure you visit here.

Room Tip: I prefer the stables

Our nights accommodation at Olivers was truly the most memorable on the Rail Trail.
Only seconds from the Cycle Surgery and renovated to perfection, our party of four enjoyed superb surroundings, extreme comfort and glorious food.
The fixtures and fittings and attention to detail was an experience in itself.
We loved everything. Wandering in the garden, enjoying a wine at the kitchen table, soaking in a great bath, feeling completely at home !
The only down side was we only had one night to enjoy.!!
Thanks again to Andrea & David
