We spent our first night here on arriving in Namibia and it was an excellent start to this part of our trip. The boutique hotel is beautifully designed and furnished - our 'junior suite' was spacious with a stylish bathroom, including a separate toilet (always a bonus as far as we are concerned). There was a small, attractive terrace outside... More

We stayed in this small boutique hotel at the beginning and end of our trip in Namibia. We stayed in 2 different rooms, both very spacious and nicely decorated. Staff was very friendly and helpful and also the food and service in the restaurant was excellent ! A perfect start and ending of our trip in Nambia

We stayed at the beginning and at the end of our holiday in Namibia at olive exclusive, both times at the Etosha suite (room nr.1). We loved the room, it was private, huge with a beautiful design, so also was the hotel and the grounds. The view from the room was not very spectacular though. The hotel feels more like... More

I just want to thank Mike and the team for making my life so special on Wednesday night. We arrived back from the coast and I have never ever been so emotionally and physically exhausted as I was that day. What a wonderful gift I got from The Olive Exclusive – the best room in the world - that room... More

I read all of the reviews looking forward to spending the night here. I was so disappointed. The hotel seemed neglected. Our room was spacious but did not have a clean feeling. The dinner was fair. Breakfast was good. But overall I think the hotel is in need of some sprucing up.

We stayed twice in this hotel: one night after our arrival in Windhoek and one night before our departure. The rooms are magnificent with a great design, very comfortable and very well equipped. The service is very efficient and friendly. The restaurant is excellent. The "mini buffet" breakfast is amazing. We can only recommend this hotel.

Wonderful place, vey tastefully done suites with a pleasant atmosphere. Great staff and nice surroundings. Close, actually walking distance, to town. All said would definitively recommend and come back. Only shortcoming: breakfast too sweet, what about some toasts ( but when I asked for them and I got it!).
