perfect for a first night stay.

perfect place for a first and last night stay. Directions on the flyer not brilliant, but spot on in the Bradt guide book. Excellent breakfast. Surprised they charge for the internet - very few places around the world now are charging even in Namibia eg Sam's Giardino.

The stone wall at the end of the bed was easy to stub your toe against when the covers were hanging over and hiding it but not sure how you could avoid this!

Olive Grove Review

Very good breakfast. Best of holiday. Very friendly service.

Downside is design of guest house with rooms next door to dining area. Not good if you need an early night, following a 22 hour journey from UK.

First night in Namibia

A very promising start to our holiday, ideal after a long journey and very easy to find.

The staff were helpful and made us feel welcome, the room was comfortable and the food excellent. We loved the bath/shower (in room 8) that felt like a very upmarket cave!

We left after one night feeling refreshed and ready for the adventure to come.

Olive Grove review

Whilst the room and bedding were clean, we found the place a little austere and not as welcoming as we would have liked.

The pool looked dirty and not very inviting.

Olive Grove review

This was our first stop in Namibia. The accomodation was very comfortable, staff very professional and friendly and dinner was excellent - Great place to start the holiday after a long journey from Ireland.

We didn't take part in any activities at Olive Grove so that is why I have ticked 'no comment below'.

Olive Grove review

Great place to start or end your visit to Namibia.

Found the jacuzzi most relaxing after a long flight - especially with the complimentary glass of champagne! Unfortunately no time to sample the spa. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Free internet access was also a bonus.

Ideal last stop

Unfair to comment as this was our last night and after Okonjima nothing would compare!

However this is a nice place to end the holiday, convenient for the airport and they serve dinner if you don't want to go into Windhoek. Excellent breakfast choice with selection of home made breads etc however dinner was slightly disappointing.

Olive Grove was a relaxing place and the staff were very helpful and friendly - they helped to confirm our flights etc.

Olive Grove a tranquil haven

As soon as we arrived we were made to feel extremely comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they were happy to organise everything for us.

The room was lovely, with some really nice personal touches. The food was also of a very high standard, our only regret was that we didn't eat there that evening as we went to Joe's bar.

Breakfast offered a very wide range and the veggies in our party were totally catered for. Transfers from one place to another ran very smoothly. An excellent start to our adventure.

Olive Grove review

We chose Olive Grove as our place to recover from the flights.

It was more than just a stop-over; our holidays started from the moment we got in. Nice entourage and good food.
