We used Olive Grove as a stop-over between Johannesburg and Cape Town, but will plan to spend two nights in future. Excellent rooms, wide open (safe) spaces for kids to play, including a great pool area, and the best lamb shank for dinner you will find in the Karoo. We were on holiday even before we reached our end destination!!... More

We stayed one night with family and pets in a self catering cottage. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but functional. While I would not say they were not clean, I think attention to detail and better checking may be in need. Given we have two small dogs as a courtesy I looked to lift... More
