I think the stay was excellent because every morning cleaner would come to our room 3 to change towels and also I think this motel should keep pet chickens so we can feed scraps to chickens living on that property!

This Motel is clean, family friendly and close to Browns Bay shops, beach & grocery stores. We always stay in a suite which includes a full kitchen, dining table & chairs. Each room has its own free parking. Very basic room but perfect for us. Staff are always very helpful. We've never had a bad experience here!

Highly recommend, loads of 70's character. A bit sceptical when we arrived, although by the time we left all agreed we would happily stay here again. The unit was clean, well equipped and the hosts friendly and helpful.

We stayed here one night before collecting our rental motorhome. The accomodation was clean and tidy and provided the basic necessities we needed.Tea bags and coffee provided. It is a little old fashioned with its furnishings. Staff were very helpful. Close to local amenities.

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights after having a muck up at the original motel we had booked. We would not normally have stayed at a motel at this star level, but we all slept soundly in this very quiet one bedroom motel, and would definitely consider staying here again. There was a queen bed and single bed...

We phoned to say we would be a little late arriving and were given a code to access our apartment keys, great service. We had a 1 bedroom apartment which was very cute, just like a little house 😃 it was well stocked and plenty of towels. Would definitely recommend staying here. Not far from the village and plenty of...

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was very simply decorated but very spacious. The bed was really comfortable and the shower was great. The apartment was clean when we arrived and although the reception wasn't manned, it was really easy to contact the owner using the reception phone and get our room keys. The Olive Tree is set...

We booked a night because we were having a night out nearby and didn't want to drive. I had received a text earlier giving me a code for the safety box so we could get the key ourselves. The front office at the time of our arrival at 5pm was closed so we saw no-one until I rang them at...

we arrived at this motel at about 8.00 at night. We were welcomed and shown to our room. The room or should I say suite had kitchen dining area, bathroom and lounge.

Kuni, the owner, and his staff are extremely helpful and run a good establishment. The Olive Tree is close (walking distance) to public transport, supermarkets, great restaurants and Browns Bay Beach. We stayed here during our first few days in NZ and then returned after touring around the North and South Islands, before returning home. The units' kitchens have enough...
