Wild Olive Guesthouse was warm and welcoming, they offered Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, were open to requests for specific foods and offered an honesty bar, relaxing dining area and a pool. All in all, a wonderful environment and very pleasant stay, I would definitely stay there again.

A modestly furnished but well-run guest house in an excellent location for visitors to Cape Town. The service is excellent, from the check-in and availability for information and personal requests, to check-out. The breakfast is fabulous and will prepare you well for your day in the 'mother city'.

The most comfortable and welcoming place we stayed at in the Cape Town area. The staff were friendly and very efficient. Our room was first class. Very good choice at breakfast and we requested an evening meal one night which was delicious. We would definitely recommend Wild Olive to anyone visiting Cape Town.
