Great reception, welcoming and friendly. Definitely worth it! The rooms are reasonably sized and the rest of the guesthouse is open plan and spacious. Even when Olive is fully booked, guest don't 'trip' over each other. Basic breakfast well presented. Feels like 'home' away from home,.

Real nice and comfortable rooms and setting, clean and tidy and above all friendly. I stayed there every time I'm at Capetown for business and once on vacation and will return again and again for sure.

Exellent B&B the rooms are nice and clean. The bathroom are cleaned every day and the host Trudy is very helpful and friendly. Nothing is to much for her. After an exellent breakfast it is nice to visit cape Town and the so many attractions. Thanks again Trudy for the lovely stay. See you again.

I've been in Cape Town for a research project. I booked a room at 'Olives on Provident' because of its good reviews on TripAdvisor. Yet, it exceeded my expectations. The guest house is lovely, comfortable (here I have to mention the bed!!!) and clean, but what really makes it unique is amazing Trudy! Not only that she made me feel... More

I stayed for 2 nights at short notice at Olives on Provident due to a miscommunication about the nights i was booked to stay at my original guest house. Trudy (the owner) collected me swiftly from being stranded and installed me in a lovely suite of rooms with my own privare court yard. She allowed my friends who were staying... More

We have just had 3 weeks at a wonderful b&b. Room was large, very well maintained. Well appointed with aircon, kettle, bar fridge, coffee, TV. It's also the cleanest room imaginable. It has it's own private courtyard which is appointed with a cafe set and a sun lounger. Hand on heart the best breakfast you will ever have. It's a... More

My Italian friend and I stayed at Olives-on-Provident for a week in November 2010. All the great standards set by Trudy and Terry have been maintained... cleanliness, service and great breakfasts, however... the best of all is the personal attention one gets when needing directions, advice on Cape town attractions and where to eat. They know what is out there... More

This B&B is 10 times better than any hotel/motel or inn I have ever visited, and I have visited many throughout the world. My hosts, Trudy and Terry were friendly, welcoming and couldn't do enough to help me and make suggestions as to where to go and sights to see - I was amazed at their knowledge of the area.... More

Lovely guest house in a quiet residential area about 20 minutes drive from the centre of Cape Town. Owners Terry & Trudy are execptional hosts. We were then in winter and came back every day to little touches like candles lit in our room and hot water bottles in the bed. They gave us free access to their wi fi.... More

'Olives' came recommended, by a friend who lives in South Africa, and we had a great stay there. Situated in a quiet location 15 minutes from the centre of Cape Town, Olives is a perfect base to explore both the city centre along with the Cape area. The bedrooms ( suites ) are both spacious and comfortable with all the... More
