“Great guesthouse”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Stayed for 1 night in Nov-13 at the beginning of our holiday. Fantastic guesthouse, nice grounds, delicious food and a relaxing pool area. We were in a luxury room, and the bottle of champagne, the turn down service with a port each and personalised letters were very special touches on our honeymoon. The manager/owner checked in with us regularly to make sure we were ok which was highly regarded. Definitely recommended for Windhoek.

Nearby the city centre, Olive Grove in a nice cozy hotel, where you easily feel at home. The room is very clean and you will find everything you need. The fact that Olive Grove has only a few rooms makes the place special. The food is excellent and the Staff very friendly. Thanks for a great stay!

Three of us stayed at the Olive Grove Guesthouse for one night; in 2 rooms. The rooms assigned were not clean, but once I mentioned it (and my travel agent called), the staff upgraded me to a executive suite that was wonderful (and clean). There were still some things that didn't work (all the lights in the bathroom), but they fixed those right away. Dinner was good (not great as ingredients were missing and not told of until served...but presented well) at about $30 USD per person. Service was very good. Breakfast (incl.) was really good, with a continental buffet AND hot/cooked breakfast (lots of wonderful choices)! We had a little bit of a hard time finding the place from the map on the brochure...guesthouse is located in a very quiet/nice neighborhood. Departing to the airport was easy, though. The guesthouse is lovely, and if they get their housekeeping staff to bring it up a notch and spiffy up the place (including the patio areas), then this would be a lovely place to return to.

Room Tip: Executive suite with living room, bedroom, and an amazing (huge) bathroom...you have to appreciate t...

We only stayed one night but I would definitely recommend this spot no matter how long your stay. After a long 17 hour travel day, we arrived late at night but even though the front desk was already closed, the guard was expecting us and we had no problem getting to our room. The bed was very comfortable and I was impressed with all of the little details and amenities: complimentary chocolate port and chocolates, plush towels, really nice toiletries, A HAIRDRYER :-), and dressing gowns (robes). The area was quiet and the space was really tranquil. Some have mentioned that they weren't thrilled with the concrete bathrooms but this is a very contemporary look which I kind of liked and I actually prefer it to tile because it can be cleaned more thoroughly (I'm not fond of moldy grout).

Although I wasn't a fan of the concrete bathroom and taps that splashed over the top of small sinks I have to say the food we had here was the best I tasted anywhere in Namibia during a three week stay.

I really want to compliment the kitchen and waiting staff as they are really very good and as someone that spends time for business reasons in far too many hotels and restaurants I'm not one to lavish praise that easily.

I had a piece of blue fillet that was cooked to perfection and few chef's can achieve this. Congratulations.

The staff were also very pleasant and a pleasure to meet.

We only spent one night here, and although one of the rooms had a an open space bathroom that very faintly resembled a prison cell (grey colour and half-high walls), the other rooms were perfect.

Setting was great and quiet, shuttle service was good and breakfast was excellent. Great setting for us to ease out of the holidays.

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
