Olive Grove review

This is a very nice, traditional structure outside the center of the city.

The city center is about a 25 minute walk away and to go anywhere, one needs to take a taxi. The food is outstanding at this guest house and the service excellent.

Highly recommended for a one or two night stay in the Windhoek area.

Olive Grove

Tucked away in an almost business area this Guest house was a bit surprising in it,s quality and presentation . Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were terrific.

As we were a bit later arriving we ate dinner 'in house ' and it was fantastic. Buffet breakfast was also of a high standard.

The rooms were ver very comfortable and a little side note -- Prince Harry stayed there a couple of years ago !

There was ample parking for the vehicle .

I would most certainly stay again .

Olive Grove a great start to holiday

Friendly helpful Staff, very positive experience at the Olive Grove would recommend to others. The building is a bit shabby in places.

Stellenbosh Wine Bar and Restaurant great place to eat in the evening

Good central Windhoek base

This was the first place we stayed in Namibia and it was excellent - everything you need with attentive staff, lovely and spacious rooms, high speed wifi and a choice of breakfasts (the game sausage was particularly memorable). There's also a very small pool area to relax by, although we chose to spend our afternoon in the city centre - only a 15 minute walk away.

The Olive Grove is also close to some decent restaurants too, either a quick drive or taxi away (we were advised not to walk after dark despite the area being really nice and seemingly trouble free).

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.
