Olive Grove was our first hotel on our first trip to Namibia. We had a standard room, thus there was a restaurant in front of our door - yet we didn't feel disturbed at all, maybe because we was mostly outside. The room was pretty, clean and comfortable, well actually I can't think of anything negative about it.
The walking distance from the city center is some 20 minutes, so no need for a taxi. To tell the truth the personnel didn't recommend walking by foot because there were cases of robbery on the way, yet we didn't notice anything dangerous.
After reading that the hotel's restaurant were one of the best in Windhoek we stayed for the dinner, and it turned out to be one of the weakest dinners in Namibia. I suppose that it just was a bad luck, maybe the chef got a wrong peace of meat, I don't know, the steak was pretty hard. Breakfast was way better.
On the overall we have enjoyed our stay, felt safe and comfortable, the staff was very friendly.
- 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
