We booked a double room for our latest drive down to Cape Town. The room was well furnished, comfortable and had all the necessities, including a small bar fridge, and coffee station. We had a look at the mountain view cottages and would recommend booking them if you are self catering, as they each have a private braai area and... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Wasn't sure it was worth driving 15km off the main road for a 1 night stop over but it was. The land looks barren and dry but as soon as you head into the Olive Groves it's a little pretty oasis. We had a nice double room near the main house but there are also family cottages for self catering... More

The accommodation is simple but attractive and has all the necessary amenities. I would definitely recommend a stay here, either overnight or... More

Clean, comfortable rooms, and delicious meals! Pretty setting and good attention to detail. The perfect stop over enroute. Only suggestion is to put a bigger shower head in as the water pressure was quite poor in the shower.

From booking to reception on arrival to our chalet and the dinner were excellent. Thank you! Will stay nowhere else when having to pass through Beaufort-West. The products for sale was a bonus & we will advise our friends to also stay over at Olive Grove.

The self catering units are comfortable, neat and clean. The farm itself is very beautiful with a relaxing atmosphere. The restaurants food is not bad but good value for money. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.

We stayed here for 1 night on our way from JHB to the Cape. The room was modest but comfortable, the grounds were lovely and the food was good. They also have a few olive products--spreads, chutneys and lotions--for sale in the reception area. Breakfast was delicious for hungry travelers. While the swimming pool is a bit of a walk... More
