Return to Olive Grove

A very convenient and pleasant first stop after our arrival in Namibia.

Kitchen closes at 20:30 so don't be too late for dinner!

Olive Grove Guest House

The Guest House is fine. The rooms and food are good.

What is very bad is the swimming pool area. The surrounding smooth tiles had, we were told by the manager, been freshly "varnished" that morning. As a result they were extremely slippery when wet with water.

My wife duly slipped and fell, breaking her arm. We advised that a sign should be placed to warn of this hazard. Upon our return two weeks later no action had been taken, and the manager was unconcerned. The tiles surrounding this pool are of completely the wrong type.

We were sorry to learn of the incident involving our travellers during their stay at Olive Grove and we went to meet with them, to make sure that they were being well looked after. We have addressed this incident with the manager at Olive Grove.

Great Windhoek base

Great Windhoek base.

Incidentally we went walking down to Windhoek town center the day we arrived and were told by the Namibia tourist police to stop walking and go back to our hotel. We sensed someone had been following us. So travelers should be aware of this - particularly on quiet days.

Olive Grove review

Helpful with producing a meal when we arrived much later than planned because of delayed flight and problems with car hire.

Excellent breakfast

See previous review

See previous ie first night

We were allocated room 11 on our last stay and we would like to mention that the TAPS in the bathroom are STIFF and it is almost impossible to turn them on or off. You might like to feed this back to the property.

Olive Grove was a lovely welcome to Namibia

Olive Grove was very welcoming. It felt like a peaceful, secluded little haven in Windhoek.

We were only there for one night, but it was a nice way to start our trip.

Nice little touches, such as complimentary port before bed time.

Friendly and helpful staff.

There is a lot of dogs barking during the night and early morning in the neighbourhood.
