Olive Grove (not to be confused with Olive Exclusive next door) is a lovely guest house set five mins from the town centre and around 30 mins from the airport. Most people staying there seemed to be on their way to or from Windhoek. A great stopping off point. Suite sized rooms fashioned out of concrete with very comfortable beds,...

Dear StrictlyManc Thank you for taking the time to write your review :) and your wonderful compliments. Sorry about the pool not looking its best, due to the draught we are not able to maintain it as we would like, but we try our best. Thank you for your understanding though, we do appreciate it.

We had chosen Olive Grove Guesthouse as accomodation before and after our Safari. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and they allowed us even to store some of our luggage during the Safari. The breakfast was nice and satisfying. They do offer a big menue for dinner, but we have never taken this opportunity. Quite close to Joe's Beerhouse....

The travel company suggested this was first class. I would rate it as 3 star in British ratings. The room was unique with a concrete base and the ambience rustic. The food was plentiful and varied. Hotel personnel extremely welcoming and friendly. Only stayed for one night on start of journey through Namibia.

Staff so helpful. Car parking with good security. Food is very good all freshly cooked. Rooms are rather sparse and bare but all you need. Need a car to get around. Swimming pool or splash pool didn't look inviting.

Very charming and peaceful place. Very friendly staff and lots of small attentions to guests. The area is quite. The only thing that I would improve is the road indications. The guesthouse is not really easy to find.

I spent one night at Olive Grove while on a business trip to Namibia. Reception was pleasant and friendly and my room was available after a 10 minute wait. I was quite surprised on entering my room to find out that a large part of the room and its fittings were constructed from cement! The bed is a large cement...

We stayed here one night after our week long trip in Namibia before flying out to Botswana. It did not go well from the start. When we arrived and tried to check in we were told that there were no rooms reserved for us and that they were full. As we were trying to find our confirmation from our travel...

Dear thewanderingfamily4 I have read your review a few times now, but I find it so difficult to picture any of the comments to be associated with Olive Grove Guesthouse and especially my staff. I have so much faith in my staff, because they prove on a daily basis to be excellent, accommodating, friendly and helpful, this is evident by...

We had a quick 12 hr stay here after landing in Windhoek and heading out the next morning to a lodge outside of the city. The staff was so lovely and made our short stay very pleasant. We got there just in time for dinner, which was delicious, and they were very patient and accommodating with our two very young...

Stayed here on the first and last nights of our Namibian trip. Most people there were using it on the same basis. Beautifully set out guest house where every room seems distinctly different.

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
