Olive Grove is a real charming Guesthouse in a nice area in Windhoek. Cars can be parked on the property. The staff is very helpful. The rooms are in a tasteful design. Overall a good place either to start or to end your Namibia trip.

The room #8 we had was the worst of our trip in Namibia. For the price charged we expected much better. We had booked a twin bedroom and were give a standard double. The toilet was separated by just a curtain from the bedroom and had no ventilation which meant any smells pervaded the bedroom. There was a window at...

The breakfast was good. Selection was great and the personal was friendly. Our room number 3 was very small. The windows were also very small and with the view to the parking area. There was a smell mold in the room. The guesthouse was very bad zu find, only with GPS.

Dear volkmar2017 Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed the breakfast and the personnel. Room 3 is a massive room for Windhoek standards, 40sqr meters with a super king bed, table, 2 chairs, coffee station and large en-suite room and we are sorry that you still found it small and not to your liking.

Excellent, lovely little place to stay in a lovely city. Staff were able to fit us in for a second night as an emergency because of a flight change. Very friendly and helpful, great food and a genuinely great place to stay. Would highly recommend staying here when traveling in Windhoek. Good recommendations from staff for sites and places to...

Rooms were large, beautiful, and comfortable. The hotel is in a quiet residential neighborhood and as such is not really in walking distance to restaurants / nightlife / etc. I wanted to praise the front desk staff (especially the lady in glasses whose name I don't remember). She was extremely capable and efficient -- for example, she hustled a popular...

Stayed here on the first night of our trip to Namibia and wasn't terribly impressed. The staff were helpful but rather abrupt and not particularly welcoming. The room was OK, spacious but everything looked a bit tired, not quite the 'boutique' type of accommodation we were expecting. The food for us was OK but our vegetarian friends we were traveling...

We used this as a place to stay on arriving in Windhoek. It was just for one night, before starting our self drive adventure. Not a great vibe though. Outside our room there had been work going on to concrete / resurface some floor and some of the dust from this was still on the floor inside our room. It...

Welcoming is correct and the food is good. The rooms are comfortable if you like the style. But it is noisy in the early morning and far from the center. The swimming pool is a joke ! We can recommend the place for a 1 night stay, the value is correct.

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
