I booked this B&B through expedia earlier this year, as it seemed very good value for money and looked like it was in a great location. I've been caught out booking through expedia previously, so contacted the B&B to make sure the booking had gone through... First, I emailed, but 2 weeks later had got no response. Then, I phoned,...

We made a reservation a few months prior to our South African vacation. We showed up at 9 Richmond and imagine our surprise when we found it vacant with a for sale sign! We went next door to unit 7, who said the building had recently been sold and no one was aware of a guesthouse.

The place is beautiful and our stay, although short, it was fantastic! The decor is sophisticated and elegant . The welcome is warm and Glenda is very kind. We forgot a jacket in the room and she did deliver it to the airport!

I stayed at the Olive Branch for 6 nights during the 2010 World Cup. The location of the Guest House is fantastic, within walking distance of Sea Point, the V&A Waterfront and Green Point Stadium. My room was very clean and comfortable. The owner could not have been more accommodating, always willing to help organizing day trips and providing lots... More

We booked one room for three nights. Upon arrival at this guest house we were informed another group had reserved the entire guest house for two weeks. The owner walked us over to another place where we booked. Even though it was also a four star, it was not very nice. Disapponted we did not have advance notice to try... More

We had a very comfortable stay at the Olive Branch guest house for 3 nights of our South Africa trip. The guest house is beautifully decorated and in a good central location in Green Point, about 15-20 mins walk from the V and A waterfront. Breakfast was lovely: cereals are put out and there is fresh fruit and cooked breakfast... More
