The Olive Grove is a very stylish guesthouse situated close to the city centre in a peaceful suburb and is one of our favourite places to stay in Windhoek. With only twelve rooms and suites it has a very intimate feel and a reputation for providing exceptional service and very good food. The staff here really has got the balance just right- relaxed and friendly yet efficient and attentive without being intrusive.
The rooms are simply yet elegantly furnished and they all have a veranda with table and chairs which can also be used for al fresco dining. The communal areas are a real delight to spend time in with a comfortable lounge and fireplace to relax in as well as an attractive courtyard and garden. Another highlight is the fact that the in-house restaurant is superb and guests can, subject to availability, also dine at the outstanding restaurant at the Olive Exclusive, their sister property next door. The guesthouse also features an outdoor plunge pool, spa, bar area and WiFi internet facilities.
