Boutiquey Olive Grove

Beautiful guesthouse, very stylish and relaxing. Really lovely open lounge arrangement with the kitchen so you could watch dinner being cooked and chat to the staff.

Fantastic room, fab bathroom. Biggest bath I have ever seen, unfortunately there just wasnt enough hot water to get it filled above a puddle.

Dinner was superb, expensive but worth it.
We had to ask for a packed breakfast because we were leaving so early. We had high hopes for it because the dinner had been so good , and because we had watched them baking bread the night before. Very disappointing, stale packet sandwich and packets of sweets. It was like a Macdonalds happy meal.Had to buy something at airport instead.

A very nice way to relax at the end of a long trip, good access to the city ( not really walkable though). Had a SPA room with treatments so you could really wind down before travelling.

Relax at Olive Grove

Nice little place to relax in Klein-Windhoek. It is a bit out of the centre, which was fine for us, as we had experienced Windhoek centre on arrival to Namibia.

They offer spa treatments, which we did not try out as we only had a couple of hours there in the afternoon and wanted an early night before an early transfer to the airport.

Olive Grove review

Very friendly reception and very helpful staff. Room was comfortable and food good. Ideal for a one night stopover.

We visited the Geological Survey in the Ministry of Mining and Energy (near Eros Airport) - interesting and well presented.

Olive Grove review

We were very welcome at Olive Grove (thanks Nantie for your support!). The rooms are different in size, so it's worth checking it before you arrive there. The luxury rooms at the pool area are really smaller than the ones in the second floor.

We had in our first night at Olive Grove the best food we had in our trip to Namibia (we would rate it as excelent), but in the last night dinner was average. And as other places in Namibia, they face some problems with hot running water when there are many people using the shower at the same time, problems which the staff will be glad and quick to solve.

We reccommend the place.

Olive Grove review

This was a really good place to stay before setting off on our adventures. The staff were welcoming. It was in a quiet residential area with great views. The rooms were really original.

A little bit of style over substance in that the two washbasins and shower looked great but didn't function entirely successfully.

Lovely breakfast but the dinner tried a bit too hard. That said, we would definitely stay here again - and it was 100% nicer than any hotel.

Olive Grove review

A great place for a first night's stay. It was easy to find from the airport. They were very welcoming, hot water bottles and heating were a real plus as it was cold at night.
