"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 10 Jun 2022
"The executive room at the Olive Grove is huge, has a beautiful view and is extremely comfortable. The staff are friendly and the restaurant food very good. I've also stayed in their standard room on a separate occasion and for short stays those rooms are also very comfortable, albeit a little smaller and less of a view.

Wifi is very reliable and the secure internal parking a must for Windhoek." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 7n in Zambia; 5n in Rwanda; 1n in South Africa

"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 3 Apr 2022
"The Olive Grove is an oasis in the city.

The staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful. The location is great for accessing the exit routes from the city if you are on a self drive holiday. The food and wine are excellent and breakfast is particularly enjoyable eaten in the courtyard by the pool.

Lovely rooms with bath and separate shower behind bedding area." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 8n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
