"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 3 Apr 2022
"The Olive Grove is an oasis in the city.

The staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful. The location is great for accessing the exit routes from the city if you are on a self drive holiday. The food and wine are excellent and breakfast is particularly enjoyable eaten in the courtyard by the pool.

Lovely rooms with bath and separate shower behind bedding area." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 8n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 21 Mar 2022
"The room was very much OK, except for the fact that it lacked screens behind the windows. For people who love fresh air at night, this is an absolute no-no. They also have a nice patio.

Dinner was average and nothing to write home about, but the breakfast was fine.

As far as parking is concerned, it’s easy to park your car, but as soon as there is more than one other self-driver, getting out of the premises is a nightmare." See all these reviews: 20n in Namibia; 15n in Botswana

"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 3 Mar 2022
"The staff were extremely welcoming, our room was great (we had booked the executive suite) and the food of very high quality. This makes a very good place to stay for the first and / or last night of any holiday in Namibia as it is close enough to the airport for convenience but with a very personalised service. There were 3 choices for both the starter and main course at dinner, and two choices for desert. All the food was freshly cooked and of high quality at a reasonable price.

Our room had all we could ask for (except wi-fi did not reach the whole space) and the tv, although not particularly necessary, had no channels to view as it relied on internet connections (YouTube, Netflix, Amazon)." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia
