Beautiful picnic /lunch setting
Sep 2020 • Family
What a wonderful menu. We were due to picnic as our first family reunion since lockdown started, but due to windy conditions we opted for a lunch under the trees overlooking the golf course. The food was delicious and the setting beautiful. The waitresses were friendly and efficient. Will definitely be back to try the dinner menu when back on the coast.

The reception was warm and very welcoming. The staff was very professional, friendly and efficient. I was pleasantly surprised.

Everyone went out of their way to make us comfortable. The food was out of this world-fresh and well prepared.

The rooms were immaculate, modern and very clean.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay, it was worth every penny.

First guests at Olivewood Estate & Golf Club
Dec 2019
Our family was the first guests at Olivewood Estate & Golf Club. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The unit was pieceful and well laid out. The children loved the deer walking around on the grass. There was not enough storage space for our clothes. Especially for long stays.

Being new and not fully operational, the kitchen wasnt up to scratch with breakfast time. I trust that that has changed. The room service was excellent.

Elegant Five StarAccommodation
Feb 2020
We stayed over for one night for Valentine's Day. The rooms was so luxurious and well worth the price paid. The staff were very attentive and ensured all our needs were taken care of. Everyone from the reception staff, golf manager, cleaning and restaurant staff were so friendly and welcoming.
We chose to eat dinner at the restaurant and were blown away at the quality of the food and that they were able to amend their dishes to cater for my gluten and dairy intolerance.
Our only regret is that we did not stay longer.

Just an amazing stay
Dec 2019
I rarely write reviews but feel it necessary regarding my stay at Olivewood.
I had been in Cape Town and needed to get away from the city and wanted a game of golf - Olivewood was reccommended by a colleague and I will definitely go back.
Firstly the course is tricky but It's absolutely spectacular - on my first day I saw whales in the ocean which was my excuse for slicing my drive! Half way house - very friendly and excellent choice of cakes etc. Played a better back nine after this visit.
I was staying in the hotel - my room was beautiful v. clean good tv. spectacular views and I made friends with visiting impalas. Quiet and peaceful.
Staff were really just superb - I was staying on my own and I just got so well looked after. The food in the main restaurant was really well priced and genuinely superb. I met the head chef Adam and he's so passionate and touching on the genius - like me he loves Bourdain and we got really quite foody. He did a pork dish which was truly exceptional. He helped me out with a bottle of Monkey Shoulder! Cool vibe in the restaurant, nice families, nice little parties which I wanted to join.
Easy to get back to Cape Town, took an Uber from the Hotel to East London.
I'm definitely going back - just a wonderful place with wonderful people.

Great lunch
Jan 2020
We went to Olive wood to play some golf, but the wind was terrible, so rather went to lunch at the restaurant.
They told as it was full due to reservations, but when we got there it was pretty much empty. Luckily for us there were a few no arrivals and they could assist us.
The food on the tapas menu was really great and the service was great.The food really was grood
The location was great and had a nice children's play area
Would really like to go back and sample more of that tapas menu.
Really do recommend this restaurant if you in the area

So close to lovely...!
Jan 2020 • Friends
We had lunch in the Clubhouse.
Drinks ordered - but no bitters so orders needed to change.

Menu is limited and simple - breakfasts, sandwiches, burgers and salads.
Most popular - tramezzines but they had run out of the bread so again, a change in the ordering.

Food was tasty.
Service was good.
Atmosphere lovely, warm and relaxing... so close to excellent but 12 noon on a Saturday and two menus staples are not available. Not good enough Olivewood!
