We cancelled this second visit to the Olive Grove because our first visit was so unsatisfactory.

We stayed at the Hotel Heinitzburg instead. That's a whole other story.

Olive Grove review

It was a bit difficult to locate. The wifi did not work (which was problematic mostly because Paul's father was in the hospital and we were trying to stay in touch).

It was a bit difficult to get out for our very early flight (e.g. the front door had a large bar across it which I had to remove, but no one had warned me about it) and all the lights were off on the stairwells. They did pack us a bag of snacks as we missed breakfast.

Olive Grove review

This was a miserable experience. The low point of an otherwise wonderful trip. The original booking for their luxury suite on the second floor involved a flight of stairs that made it impossible for Patsy with her bad knee. The substitute on the first floor we called the "Fuhrer Bunker". It was small. It was all concrete. There was one tiny window in the bathroom. The room opened directly onto the dining area/patio with glass doors and curtains and no privacy.

We cancelled our reservation for a stay on the return trip. Is there any chance of a refund?

Expert Africa comments

Expert Africa apologised for these guest for allocating them an unsuitable room, and arranged a refund for them. This was due to confusion over where Olive Grove's suite was located, because they originally offered a ground floor suite. It was a mistake made by us, and we are very sorry it happened.

Great place to stay

Very comfortable guesthouse/small hotel. First night we had large upstairs room with sitting area.

Food is excellent. Staff helpful, providing 5 am breakfast to room on our last night when we had an early flight. A bit far to walk easily to centre, but easy drive.
