"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 2 May 2024
"A small guest house situated outside Windhoek in a quiet suburb. Lovely room and extremely comfortable bed and pillows. Large bathroom with bath and shower.
Friendly and helpful staff. Tea and coffee facilities and home made cookies provided. Also sherry and chocolates.
We decided to eat in for dinner and were very satisfied with the choice of starter, mains and dessert.
Breakfast was served at the table with a choice of both continental and cooked.
The pool was very small and could be described as decorative rather than functional.
The staff were friendly and we would choose Olive Grove again if we ever returned to Windhoek." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"The Olive Grove Lodge is an excellent overnight stop.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The food at dinner and breakfast is excellent with a good choice of dishes.

My only small issue is that the courtyard tends to have a lot of mosquitos so remember to use the bug spray." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia; 3n in Zimbabwe
