The location is as tranquil as it gets: Between olive trees, In the heart of the Karoo you stay in fabulous rooms and are warmly received by the personnel. The food is typical to the Karoo area, which is not a bad thing. Walking up on a sunny morning it feels like a fairy tale.

We have stayed at Olive Grove for the third time and as always the food was great and the accommodation pleasing. As a bonus we were surprised by a large group of Gemsbok near the gate. An oases in the Karroo ....and a real alternative to staying inside the Karroo National Park.

Phoned on short notice on arriving in Beaufort, we were warmly welcomed. Dinner was three course and great. Surroundings were scenic and peaceful. Managed to get in a short walk through the olive plantation before sunset , a glass of cherry ended the sunset .

A great overnight stop, outside of Beaufort West. Good clean rooms and absolute magnificent night sky viewing. Food well prepared and as for the Karoo lamb falling off the bone. One note for owner, the shower head can be upgraded , as with the TV flat screens are almost dime a dozen.

We stayed one night at Olive Grove en route to Cape Town and highly recommend it as a comfortable and affordable stopover. The overall ambiance is very nice and the cottages were clean and well equipped. We were particularly impressed with the dinner we had which was delicious (Karroo Lamb) and very good value for money.

We stayed over at Olive Grove Guest Farm driving from Joburg to Cape Town. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Dinner was as delicious as promised. The trails on the farm were lovely and very well maintained. Next time we will stay longer and combine it with a hike in the nearly Karoo National Park.
