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.

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.

Friendly and helpful staff.

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

Nice place but who let the dogs out!

Dogs barking right outside our room kept us up all night after a 39 hour flight/this is not OK!

Property well aware and apparently have received other complaints.

Cant recommend a place if you cannot get a good nights sleep.

Great food at Olive Grove

The downside is you have to share the terrace with other guests, there is not much privacy, other guests can see you when you are in your room when they walk to their rooms or stay on the terrace.

We had two dinners there, food was great but they could change the menu which was exactly the same on our two stays.

There were dogs barking all afternoon and till late night, this is a bit annoying.

Olive Grove review

Good place for a stop over before or after a long flight if you want easy access into Windhoek or the airport.

Excellent staff, very good food and an easy walk into town.

Good service but slightly claustraphobic

the Staff at the Olive Grove are very helpful and friendly. The food provided at all meals is pretty good. However what we didnt like I'm afraid was that found this property to be quite claustrophobic (it is a small complex and the rooms are in very close proximity to the open seating area and indeed the eating area - there is nowhere to walk or stroll or get a feeling of space or any views. Personally we would have preferred to spend our one night in and our one night out at one of the camps in the Windhoek area en route to/from the airport - where we could have spent more quality time and stretched our legs a little.

Comfortable guest house with great food

We only stayed one night in the Olive Grove, but it was a comfortable, calm stopover, with great food and warm service - would highly recommend!
