We were there for our Honeymoon and we spent only one night. The room was big and very nicely decorated. We had a terasse and a hammock. The restaurant is also really good, and the breakfast was awesome.

We stayed a night enroute to to a safari. Sadly only a night. We have found a real gem and The Olive Exclusive will now be our only Windhoek Hotel. The rooms are awesome...great decor and the staff friendly and helpful. Worth a stay

Our last day in Namibia was spent at the Olive Exclusive in Windhoek. Having traveled extensively and stayed at some amazing places, we were blown away by the Olive Exclusive. It's quirky with amazing decor. We stayed in a suite where old parts of the original building were used to decorate the rooms, and I say rooms! We had a... More

Travel to Windhoek on regular basis. I stayed at The Olive for first time. It meets all my expectations and more. Amazingly friendly staff, well furnished rooms, problem free WiFi, very nice restaurant, beautiful decor. A must stay. I will go back.

We stayed here for two nights recently. Once at the start of our Namibia trip and again at the end. We were greeted by very friendly staff and after checking in were shown to our superb room which turned out to be a very lovely suite. Dinner in the evening was delicious and very reasonably priced and the morning breakfast... More

When I first began visiting Namibia around 2000, I would spend my first nights in Windhoek's Olive Grove Guest House, which I found a pleasant stay with great service and exceptional food. After a few years we moved to the Vertigo - which I loved - because I acquired friends in that neighbourhood. Unfortunately, that guest house closed; and I... More

We spend the night of my birthday here as a treat, and what a treat that was. The room was gorgeous, the interior design was stunning. Dinner and Breakfast were also wonderful. We had issues with the lock on our room, but the host couldn't have been more helpful and apologetic. Service was fantastic. Only wish we could have stayed... More

This is my first visit to Namibia and if this hotel is anything to go by - they have set a standard! We had a lovely room and were greeted by a smiling and very helpful host. Our room was spacious and nothing was too much. There is free wifi, complimentary port and sherry in the rooms and the bed... More

Lovely modern suites, excellent food and great view - this is an ideal place to stopover to and from Etosha. The Hotel Thule used to be our favorite stopover but the food and service at Thule has gone down - they still have a nice view but they are nowhere near the standard of the Olive Exclusive! All the Olive... More
