Very clean and friendly, a great atmosphere to relax in the garden, staff go above and beyond what is expected, the room was very homey and welcoming. Overall a great stay. It was Just a little noisy as the BnB is situated next to a main road.

Wild Olive was a comfortable home away from home for our family holiday in Cape Town. Great location, beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast and friendly service made our stay extremely pleasant. Thank you for going the extra mile to make our experience unforgettable.

Stayed here as family of 4 just before Christmas visiting relatives in Newlands. Spacious well-appointed adjoining rooms (4 and 5) at the top of the house with nice extras like home cooked biscuits, lovely toiletries, free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and safes and fridges. Serviced every day. Scrumptious breakfasts in dining room that opens onto the pool and garden. Charming but unobtrusive...

We stayed in the Cottage attached to the main house - it's our 2nd stay and again we enjoyed it. Breakfast is delightful - we'll stay again :-) Lovely enclosed sunny garden with pool and secured parking.

I just stayed for 1 night and arrived very late (little after 10 pm). Where other guest houses don't really like to welcome you that late, they welcomed me with great hospitality and tips where I could still grab a bite. Their internet was the best of all guest houses in the are. Very fast and I could watch TV...

We were in the guest house approximately a week and have felt very well. The staff was very kind and the service was professional. The guest house is suitable for various activities as a starting point. We can recommend the house absolutely. We come back soon.

The location is good. Room 7 is adjacent to the reception area and at times a bit noisy with people coming and going. What was far more disturbing was the people with young children in the room above. The thumping of feet and movement above could be heard through the wooden floors. Not a quite room. Found a used tissue...

Dear Mr. Nel We apologise for the inconvenience caused during your stay at our house. We are aware of the noise in room 7 caused by the staircase and the room above. A fix for this is scheduled for the next low season. A new room door and sound proofing in the ceiling should help. Nevertheless, due to the way...
