A warm welcome

This is an ideal place to start or finish a Namibian trip, or in our case, both. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

The option to have a light or full dinner on site was great.

Olive Grove review

Due to our late arrival at the Olive Grove we did not spend a great deal of time there. They arranged a taxi to take us to a nearby restaurant (Joe's Beerhouse) as the area was not safe for pedestrians.

Breakfast the following morning was pleasant.

Olive Grove

Very nice experience. Made to feel welcome and appreciated immediately upon arrival. Helpful, friendly staff. Excellent (and plenty of) food. Owner dropped by to say hello and ask if we needed anything too, which is smart business, but also appreciated. Only wish we had arrived sooner to be able to take advantage of their spa services too! Great location.

Lovely Guest House

We loved this place.

We arrived very early in the morning, due to the time of our flight. They were very welcoming, immediately served us an excellent breakfast and the room was very quickly made ready for us. It was beautiful, with an amazing shower.

The evening meal was good too.

Final Stop-over

To be honest, this was just a stop-over to ensure we were in close-range for our flight back.

As such, I have no complaints at all. The food is good, the rooms are fine (although ours was a little noisy in the day, being in close proximity to the back alley and main gate).

There was a strange problem with the lighting circuit, which meant the lights dropped to 'brown-out' periodically - rather ironic after two weeks in remote camps with not a flicker.

Olive Grove

Lovely place to stay for a night on the way through Windhoek.

Nadia seemed to be on duty 24 hours a day and was most helpful and charming, serving us a delicious breakfast at the ridiculously early hour we needed.

We ate at their sister restaurant next door which was excellent, if a little grand. The food was first class but the portions were enormous - warning to fellow travellers, skip some of the courses or die !
