Olive Grove review

On arrival I was given the same room as my previous occupancy, which I have already commented on. However I wanted to eat in the restaurant at 7-45 pm, this was queried as being “late”, so I changed to 7-15pm. Fine, although the staff closed up the guesthouse around 8pm, and went home. I was left eating my desert with the night watchman! I appreciate that I was the only guest at dinner (the rest of the occupants had opted for taxis to take them out), and it was a Sunday, so that the staff wanted to be with their families, but I did feel neglected. I was also told that the restaurant was “expensive”.

I have to add that it is not the fault of the guesthouse, but there were 2 dogs continuously barking all night from the private house next door—this did not improver the atmosphere.

Ideal overnight

Olive Grove is an ideal Windhoek overnight.

The rooms were charming and the meals absolutely delicious (possibly the best we encountered in Namibia).

A very welcoming first stop and one we would not hesitate to return to.

My stay here

The pool area is small; there is not enough space for seating. My room (number 9) was rather spartan though with plenty of room. The staff were ok. I would have appreciated a more relaxing experience. I understand the other Olive Grove next door offers a better experience.

A good base for the end of our trip

Our night at Olive Grove was very comfortable. As mentioned earlier, we did prefer Galton House to Olive Grove due to its overall atmosphere and warmer welcome, but the location of Olive Grove was arguably better as we were able to walk into town.

They were very accommodating and let us leave our car there on the morning of departure, so that we could explore the city centre ahead of needing to get back to the airport.

OK for an overnight stay

We arrived late in the evening and left the next morning. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning efficient. Our room was up a steep flight of stairs so that that would not be a good location for guests with mobility issues. We looked at they pool and it appeared to be in poor condition with an over growth of algae.

We had an excellent breakfast with a varied menu. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. This a adequate place for an overnight but we would not consider it for a more prolonged stay.

Olive Grove review

Great place for a first night stop.

We were there on our last night too, and the staff were very helpful with taxis into Windhoek for us. Highly recommend Joe's Beerhouse - only 5 minutes away by cab. We had a lovely meal there on our last night (gets very busy so best to book).

We also ate at Olive Grove which was very good too.

Fine for an overnight stop

The hotel was easy to find with a map. Parking is behind gates.

There is a small pool.

Staff were fine and the breakfast on the terrace with open kitchen was very pleasant.

Great spacious bathroom.
