"Olive Grove review"

2 nights Arrived 8 Dec 2009
"The accommodation was as good as we remembered but again the mosquitos were a problem so investing in nets would help.

The evening meal of pork was inedible but the service was good apart from an over heplful porter.

The reception were outstanding when we left our documents in airmailing them to SA before our arrival.

Thank you so much." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia; 1n in South Africa

"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 19 Oct 2009
"the decor is excellent and although initially alarming do not be put off by the fact that some of the rooms come directly off the terrace. This did NOT impact on our stay or privacy at all.

The staff where courteous and friendly and jacuzzi excellent!

It may have been useful to know that there was a wellness centre where pre booking for treatments would have been an advantage" See all these reviews: 5n in Namibia

"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 7 Oct 2009
"Pleasant hotel in Windhoek.

Rooms fine, but felt a little small after more than two weeks of spacious accommodation around the country. Quality of rooms varied between those of same apparent grade. Staff friendly and helpful and food good.

Pool barely worth having due to small size, but massage carried out effectively and at reasonable cost.

A pleasant stopping off place for a night." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 7 Oct 2009
"In some ways this is hard to rate given the other places we had stayed in. It gave us good access to Windhoek which was fine but it just felt restricted.

The standard room was a disappointment after the others we had stayed in." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia

"Olive Grove review"

1 night Arrived 3 Oct 2009
"We think in hindsight we would have preferred to head straight for Okinjima and not stop at Windhoek. The staff were very helpful when we left the room keys in the rental vehicle when Europcar came to exchange it!

We did try NICE Restaurant and it was a great supper." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
