Olive Grove

This upscale Bed & Breakfast is located in a suburb of Windhoek.
It is suitable for the first or last night of a trip across Namibia.

Rooms are clean and the premises are secure; friendly staff who can cook up some good food.
The location is conveniently close to downtown Windhoek which makes it easy to stock up on supplies if you are going on a road trip.

Olive Grove review

The reception were very helpful in confirming our flights as we were unable to access the website for Air Namibia was unobtainable.

It suited us for the night before we flew home.

Olive Grove review

We stayed in room 8 for one night when we first arrived in Namibia. The staff were friendly and the proprietor contacted the airline for us as we were waiting on our delayed baggage (which safely arrived later that day). There was a nice outside eating area with reasonable food (a late lunch).

The room was quite rustic in style (but smart) with an extremely comfortable bed and nice sheets etc. We were left fizzy wine (we were on honeymoon) and later arrived back to find complimentary port and chocolates along with hot water bottles in the bed! Very good breakfast. Reasonably good location.

Ideal for a first-night stop

For us, Olive Grove was a ideal place for our first night stay: easy to find, with secure parking; a friendly welcome; a short walk from a shopping area with a supermarket to stock up with fruit and water, a phone shop to buy a SIM card (15 N$), and a bottle shop if needed. There is access to the internet to let friends and family know you have arrived safely, and after a long journey it was good to be able to eat in and not have to worry about finding a restaurant.

Dinner was a set three-course menu, with a choice of meat, and was delicious. It was a pleasant surprise to find complmentary port and chocolates in our room after dinner, and even more pleasant to find hot water bottles in the bed!

The room itself wa spacious with excellent shower and bathroom facilities, although after the sun went down it was not lit well enough to repack after the journey, but that was completed next morning before an excellent breakfast (The "Norwegian" breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs is highly recommended.)

A warm welcome

This is an ideal place to start or finish a Namibian trip, or in our case, both. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

The option to have a light or full dinner on site was great.

Olive Grove review

Due to our late arrival at the Olive Grove we did not spend a great deal of time there. They arranged a taxi to take us to a nearby restaurant (Joe's Beerhouse) as the area was not safe for pedestrians.

Breakfast the following morning was pleasant.

Olive Grove

Very nice experience. Made to feel welcome and appreciated immediately upon arrival. Helpful, friendly staff. Excellent (and plenty of) food. Owner dropped by to say hello and ask if we needed anything too, which is smart business, but also appreciated. Only wish we had arrived sooner to be able to take advantage of their spa services too! Great location.
