Being in the hospitability business ourselves we know excellent practice when we see it. Wild Olive is operated by two skilled professionals offering great food, hospitality and comfort on a very personal level. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed Peter’s cooking on 2 of those. Being a restaurant owner in the past, he cooks to a very professional standard,... More

We are a family travelling with two children and only stayed for one night before flying home to Germany. We wish we could have stayed longer as the house is beautifully located - 5 minutes to walk to the beach, with ocean view from our rooms and a perfect view from the upper balcony and dining area. Gloria and Peter... More

We've been returning to the Wild Olive for a number of years now and we are never anything but delighted to be there. Gloria and Peter always welcome us like old friends, which I guess is what we are now. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and familiar, although each time we come back there are improvements and small surprises which... More

This is the way we feel, everytime we come to stay with Gloria and Peter at Wild Olive! We have come here every year for the past eight and will continue to do so, as long as their beautiful B&B exists. This is so much more than a B&B, though! Peter a former star chef in his own restaurant at... More

The hospitality and quality of food and service is second to none. We felt that we were being looked after by friends and each meal was a wonderful experience. Peter is a talented chef and the relaxed atmosphere and attention to detail was superb. It is easily accessible from Cape Town but we didn't find that Pringle Bay itself had... More

The first time we visited the Wild Olive we had no idea what to expect. Now it is an absolute must each time we visit South Africa. This year will be our fourth visit and if it wasn't for the fact that we have to travel to the other side of the world we definitely would visit Peter and Gloria... More

We stayed for 3 nights with friends who had been before and told us how good the Wild Olive is. Gloria and Peter almost feel like family after our short visit. The location is superb with lovely gardens and the 'Cuddle Puddle' pool. Peter would win the Masterchef title and Gloria hostess of the year. We can't wait to go... More
