Olive Grove Guesthouse

Well-sited and secure. Service excellent and rooms well-equipped if functional in design - never seen a concrete bath before!

We added dinner to our B&B on each stay here and all meals were excellent, with breakfasts having a 'worldwide' choice. Lots of really nice special touches - the breakfast menu has an outline of main features of Windhoek as well as mini map, after dinner a complementary mini carafe of port and a couple of chocolates - nice small touches.

Staff extremely friendly, efficient and informative

Olive Grove review

Good hotel for first night, clean, comfortable and friendly helpful staff
Delightful meal on their external terrace.
More detailed directions would have been useful, due to unfamiliarity, made a couple of errors in finding it!

Return to Olive Grove

A very convenient and pleasant first stop after our arrival in Namibia.

Kitchen closes at 20:30 so don't be too late for dinner!

Olive Grove Guest House

The Guest House is fine. The rooms and food are good.

What is very bad is the swimming pool area. The surrounding smooth tiles had, we were told by the manager, been freshly "varnished" that morning. As a result they were extremely slippery when wet with water.

My wife duly slipped and fell, breaking her arm. We advised that a sign should be placed to warn of this hazard. Upon our return two weeks later no action had been taken, and the manager was unconcerned. The tiles surrounding this pool are of completely the wrong type.

Expert Africa comments

We were sorry to learn of the incident involving our travellers during their stay at Olive Grove and we went to meet with them, to make sure that they were being well looked after. We have addressed this incident with the manager at Olive Grove.

Great Windhoek base

Great Windhoek base.

Incidentally we went walking down to Windhoek town center the day we arrived and were told by the Namibia tourist police to stop walking and go back to our hotel. We sensed someone had been following us. So travelers should be aware of this - particularly on quiet days.
