“Most comfortable bed plus fun decor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013 via mobile

I don't think it was jet lag but the bed was most comfortable esp the linens. The cook to order breakfast was fabulous. Walking distance to real gem of restaurant La Boheme on Main. Decor is fun! Nice neighborhood, walking distance to beach.

We have experienced an unique stay at the Sweet Olive Gueshouse.
Staff is friendly and attentive at all times, and assist whenever help is required.
The rooms are decorated with attention to detail and are spotless. We felt at home from the first minute.
Breakfast was delicious and prepared with love.
The Sweet Olive Guesthouse is a great place to stay for a fair price!

We stayed at Sweet Olive Guesthouse for 4 days in February. We really enjoyed our stay! The room was amazing as well as the cozy backyard and the nice breakfast table.
Sweet Olive has a great location in Sea Point. It is very safe to walk around in the evening and there are a lot of nice restaurants in walking distance.
Thank you very much to all the staff members! you are awesome :-)
We will definitely come back soon!

Lovely B&B with comfortable beds, great artistic flare & very comfortable. Wonderful warm people greeting us, making me tea & cleaning a room so we may check in.
Great value here, I would recommend any of the Sweet" B&Bs in Sea Point.
