We decided to overnight here en route fron Cape Town to Johannesburg. What a wonderful stay. The chalets were comfortable and well fitted. Everything was spotless and service was impeccable. We enjoyed a good breakfast before our departure the next morning. My kids keep asking when we we are going back there again. We are defintely planning a return visit.

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.
