Great one-night stop

Great place to recuperate from the flight. Luxury room was spacious - and the hot water bottles they made at night were a nice surprise.

Had a lovely meal at Joes Beerhouse which was near - tried all different kind of game and crocodile! They were happy to book a taxi for us. The best breakfast we had in the whole holiday was at Olive Grove.

Didn't appear to be much parking but wasn't a problem for us as we seemed to be the only car there. The pool also didn't seem too appealing.

Olive Grove Review

Same comments as before, but we were impressed with the early availability of our rooms - 10.30 am.

Thank you!

Last night at Olive Grove

Lovely place to spend our last night in Namibia.

Convenient location and secure parking. Superb room and fabulous dinner and breakfast. Full marks for attention to detail, hot water bottles in bed and port and chocolates.

Would happily return and would not hesitate to recommend.

Olive Grove review

Good enough...fine for an evening before moving on. It somewhat feels like a prison because of the security wire around it. No problem with the people, who were cordial and helpful except for the night crew who seemed to have been sleeping a bit too well...neglected to roll up the sunshades, which were flapping noisily away for most of the night.

Olive Grove Review

Great welcome to Africa! We had a good room - actually Prince Harry stayed there last year!

The food was excellent - all home made and the service was good. Very pleasant place to stop over.

A fun place to end our holiday

Windhoek was a bit of a culture shock having come from the desert - thankfully the Olive Grove is tucked in the back streets and not too lively.

The team here were great fun and obviously enjoyed working together and entertaining their guests - nothing was too much trouble. They are used to this being a first or last stop on a trip and as either a first or last impression of Namibia - they left us wanting to come back.

Our room was huge, really huge. The outside seating area very private although we sat by the pool on our last afternoon enjoying the sound of the water.

Olive Grove review

Our one night stay was definitely acceptable. But our overall experience was average.

Steps to room were a bit challenging. Fully open shower in middle of room is unappealing. Troubles with TV led to 2 visits downstairs by my husband and 2 up by person on duty. Split of champagne on in-room fridge menu required trip by my husband to bar. Our window was on back of kitchen so there was noise in early morning. And person on check out had difficulty coming to conclusion on our bar charges.

Pleasant stop on arrival in Windhoek

We were in Windhoek for only one day and focused on preparations for starting our 2 week self-drive Namibia tour the following day. Olive Grove was a perfectly pleasant place for this brief stay. Room was lovely and comfortable; layout of the inn was attractive.

It was a bit hard to figure out at first who had what role and where to direct any questions but in the end every staff person was very pleasant and responsive to all of our needs. At our request, they were also able to connect us to a young man who provided a nice tour of the town at the end of the day so we could get some sense of its history and culture, which we appreciated.

There's some complicated history and tension with the hotel next door, which seems part of the same operation (which evidently it was but no longer is). The staff did end up helping us get a dinner reservation there and all went well but it was a bit confusing.

Great place to start or end a journey

We chose it as our first stop after a tiring overnight flight and it proved an ideal place to start a holiday.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We chose to have dinner there and the food and service was very good.

Olive Grove review

Nice spot but we were there less than 24 hours, so I haven't any comments.
