We stayed at Olive Grove before flying to Sossusvlei as part of a tour around Botswana, Zambia and Namibia organised by Melanie at &Beyond. We actually visited Namibia two years ago and were meant to stay here but they were fully booked so we stayed in the Heinitzburg which while lovely I don't think was any more special when it came to interiors (though it is a great spot for sundowners).
The guesthouse is really clean and I know the concrete style isn't to everyone's taste but we love it and had encountered it lots of other places in Namibia. We arrived quite late and as I wasn't sure the kitchen would be open for dinner too late (as it happens it closes around 9 or 9.30pm) I'd booked a table at Joe's Beerhouse down the road. The staff happily called us a cab and we headed off for dinner. We returned, enjoyed the port left in our room and went to bed for a good night's sleep.
Breakfast was excellent, lots of options though we decided on the Namibian. There's a buffet laid out first too, so plenty of muffins etc. to gorge on first. I'd happily stay here again for a night or two.
- 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
