"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 4 Nov 2014
"Room & bathroom were quite nice, but the bare concrete floors were rather unwelcome. The receptionist was very helpful.

We were a bit surprised when they wanted to close the lounge area by 9pm, stopping any use of the computer. Breakfast was fine if unremarkable. Overall, a pleasant but not exceptional B&B." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana

"Good rest after a long flight"

1 night Arrived 15 Oct 2014
"A brief stay here to recover after a long flight and prepare for our big adventure.

Champagne on ice in the room on our arrival - a nice touch - the holiday was off to a good start!

Good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed after a substaintial first meal in Namibia - the steak was delicious.

Generous breakfast packs to take with us on our early morning departure." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
