My husband and I stayed in the Garden Cottage for the first time in 2010 and were once again able to spend four nights there in September. The cottage was immaculately clean with all the necessary appliances and crockery for a self catering stay. A wall heater and electric heater, plus electric under blankets kept us very warm during a spell of winter weather. The cottage is spacious with a king size bed, plenty of cupboard space and a very nice bathroom, plus DSTV in the sitting room area. Eugene and his wife, together with Tino were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely return.

We loved Wild Olive Gust House, they had nice big rooms with good bathrooms. We booked 2 rooms, one for us and one for our 2 boys. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts were very accommodating and friendly. We didn't use the pool but it looked great. We would definitely recommend this guest house.

This was our 2nd stay at Wild Olive and we were very happy. The location is very central which was extremely convenient. We enjoyed our few nights in the self-catering cottage next to the swimming pool. It was extremely comfortable and everything was clean and worked as it was supposed to. Nice shower, comfortable bed, useful kitchen area. Tino was friendly and super helpful.

A lovely guesthouse. The Wild Olive is always welcoming and the staff are happy to go the extra mile to make sure that your needs are met. We spent time by the swimming pool and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the garden. Breakfasts are also good.
