Olive Grove review

Only comment to make is that the safe in the room was not attached to anything which negated its usefulness.

We were there so briefly after our missed flight that I can't really comment on many aspects.

Olive Grove review

Hotel was nice & room was comfortable - they left nice little touches in the room like port & chocolate.

Staff was also very nice & breakfast was delicious.

We had dinner in the hotel restaurant & food was decent but we weren't overly excited about it.

Olive Grove comfortable and welcoming

Olive Grove proved a very pleasant overnight stay on arrival in Windhoek. Spacious and comfortable rooms and a lovely breakfast with lots of choice.

The staff were lovely and recommended and booked a table for us at Joes Beer House where we had a fun night meeting other travellers and sampling one or two cocktails! Very popular and atmospheric bar/restaurant.

On our return to Olive Grove at the end of the evening we found hot water bottles in our beds and port and chocolates for a nightcap. Would thoroughly recommend Olive Grove.

Great starting place for our trip.

Would thoroughly recommend.

Excellent rooms - one of the biggest beds we've ever had.

Lovely food and a blanket provided to keep you warm was a welcome addition.

Great room but poor service - disappointing

Very contemporary and spacious room. However, our stay was badly let down by the attitude of the unwelcoming staff. They need to realise that providing an excellent and stylish room is not enough. It was a very unfriendly stay and much needed customer service training needs to be introduced here!

Despite this we booked for dinner here on our last night, as the Elegant Guest House did not provide dinners and it was nearby. However, on arrival we discovered that they had not reserved a place for us and we were abruptly told that dinners were exclusive to those staying at the Olive Grove.

The Olive Grove a luxurious start to the trip

Staff at the Olive Grove were lovely. The accommodation was excellent and the food was great however it felt a little like a captive audience as the premises is in a quiet residential area.

We did ask for a map of the surrounding area and were provided with one and directions to get to "town". We walked to this area and there were a couple of other restaurants and Joe's Beer Bar but it didn't feel right to aim to eat there and walk the distance back as evening was drawing in.

This said there was a good choice on the menu at the Olive Grove and the food was very tasty
