We stayed at the Olive Grove Guest farm for 3 nights on our way from Durban to Cape Town after stopping at Bloemfontein. Self catering cottages were comfortable and clean and contained all the essentials. Facilities for braaiing behind the cottage as well. Only thing missing was a cosy fireplace in the chalet.... the electric heater just did not fit... More

We travelled to Cape Town from Pretoria in December, and booked at Olive Grove to sleep over. It was such a nice visit - the rooms are spacious and tidy, the food was great and I LOVED the Honesty Bar. The people where all so friendly and we felt right at home. Was a bit sad when we had to...

My dad chose this place as one of the places we stayed at during our travels through Western Cape. It was perfect; the hospitality, the food. I want to go back one day, this time on a romantic holiday. Thank you for making this place exist!

We had a very good overnight stay at the Olive Grove guest farm. The cottage was spotless and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the dinner was a typical Sunday lunch with lamb knuckles, vegetables and malva 'pudding'. Next time we would like to stay a little longer.

I stayed two days in this lodge, and its was great, The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The dinner (lamb) was amazing) The rooms (motel style) are basic but comfortable. The hole family like to help with every question you will have (directions, wifi, about the live farm, etc...) I really like to recommend this accommodation.
