Rooms and facilities are well located (out of city center in a relaxed area) and provide the right facilities as an entry point to Windhoek. Pretty big rooms and very good breakfast. Ideal place for the purpose of the visit.

Our travel agents had booked us in here for our first night in Namibia.It's perfectly OK if a little dated. We didn't have dinner but the breakfast is good and everyone was very pleasant.The bath/shower set-up is rather odd, as is the loo behind a curtain. To be honest, with a flight arriving mid-day, I'd have preferred to go straight...

Stylish Luxury Suite - partly in bad condition and not very clean. Service unfortunately only on demand. Non functional mosquito-net. Dirty swimming pool 😩 Very good breakfast and last but not least a car-wash for tip

Dear Doc_Zelgi Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the breakfast and found the room to your liking. We do apologise for the pool, we did have an issue to get it clean, its sparkling now, but I sympathise and apologise if it was not in top notch when you visited us. Kindest regards The Olive Grove...

Our room was lovely with great decor. There is Wifi in the rooms but we got better reception sitting by the fountain in...

We stayed at Olive Grove on our first night of our self drive tour of Nambia. There is secure parking and our room (top floor luxury) was very comfortable. A large bedroom and bathroom with a lounge area. It is uniquely styled which gave us an insight of what to expect during our stay in Namibia. The breakfast covered all...

After a long and tedious day of delayed flights and border issues I was so grateful to finally be able to relax and unwind for a night before heading off on a 3 week cross country driving safari. I arrived late and the kitchen was closed, but they were very accommodating and saw to it I had a good meal...

We stayed for one night in this lovely guest house and also ate at their amazing restaurant. The food was a fixed menu of the day that was delicious. 300 per person 3 courses, and it was delicious! We would also recommend a night because the rooms are just perfect! Carefully prepared and decorated. For more tips about Windhoek follow...

The rooms really didn't live up to expectations after seeing the photographs on line. Shower, double sink, bath, bed base and floors all polished concrete and gave it a unfinished look. No wardrobe or drawers in bedroom and clothes were supposed to be hung on a rack behind a curtain. No curtain lining on the large window & door which...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Olive Grove is a small upmarket accommodation establishment situated close to the city center in a quiet, peaceful area. The guesthouse takes homely atmosphere to a different level. Recently completely refurbished, each room has been decorated and painted with new colour schemes allowing a different feel, but with the same elegant and simplistic emphasis on decor. The open-plan kitchen allows guests to see how meals are prepared, while they enjoy a drink in the lounge. The menu was also reinvented and is now fully a la carte, quite unique for a guesthouse. Home-style food is rounded off with great presentation, pushing up the level of the guesthouse dining experience. Whilst each of the eleven rooms and one suite cater for every need of the most discerning traveller, the emphasis remains one of simplicity and elegance. ... more   less
