A comfortable and relaxing place to take a load off after a long trip. The restaurant at the Olive Exclusive next door is exceptional. Be sure to enjoy a bottle of wine from a superb wine list with the owners, Roger and Lindy.

We stayed at this facility twice during our safari in Namibia. Rooms were nice, but room temperature not easily regulated. One night we were cold and the other was quite warm. The curtains were not easy to open or close at the doorway; rods very high and curtains were tied to the rod. Lighting in bathrooms could be brighter. Service...

Stayed here one night in August, got there very early in the day and they took care of us and gave us a room fairly quickly. Rooms are nice, but not posh. Beautiful patio outside our room to relax on and enjoy the weather. Food was excellent and service very good. Location is off the beaten track which I found...

Staff were friendly, competent and welcoming. Low bedroom lighting levels can be ‘romantic’ at the right time and in the right atmosphere, but can be a great inconvenience when trying to find things in suitcases, or when ladies are trying to colour-match clothes or apply make-up. Some lighting over the wardrobe/suitcase areas would have helped, together with better lighting near...

We started our Namibia vacation in this place. Arriving very early - at about 8 am. - we were offered breakfast and our room was ready at about 10 am. The personnel was very friendly and helpful. We also got a safe parking place on the premises. We got some information on Windhoek and indication how to get there walking....

We stayed here on our last night in Namibia, on our way from Etosha to a 7.15 flight to Jo'burg. The bedrooms are comfortable. The hot water bottle and complimentary port were a nice touch during the quite cold winter nights. The bathroom decoration is polished concrete which was fine for us, but not perhaps to everyone's taste. Dinner is...

The Olive Grove is located quite close to the centre of Windhoek. It has secure off-road parking, comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff and an excellent restaurant. We were well looked after and the hot water bottles given as we returned to our room after dinner were a nice surprise (winter nights in Namibia can be cold!). We were able...

We spent our last night in Namibia here and were very impressed by the friendly, helpful staff and the spacious room that we had. The location is about 10 minutes walk from the city centre, although the hilly layout of Windhoek makes it a bit more of a slog, but the main attractions are all accessible by foot. I'd definitely...

After some long and short plane rides, we landed in Windhoek, our take-off place for our vacation. The Olive Grove Guest House was in a largely residential area and was well appointed. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. If your plane arrives in the early to mid-morning, you will likely have to wait for the previous room occupants to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Olive Grove is a small upmarket accommodation establishment situated close to the city center in a quiet, peaceful area. The guesthouse takes homely atmosphere to a different level. Recently completely refurbished, each room has been decorated and painted with new colour schemes allowing a different feel, but with the same elegant and simplistic emphasis on decor. The open-plan kitchen allows guests to see how meals are prepared, while they enjoy a drink in the lounge. The menu was also reinvented and is now fully a la carte, quite unique for a guesthouse. Home-style food is rounded off with great presentation, pushing up the level of the guesthouse dining experience. Whilst each of the eleven rooms and one suite cater for every need of the most discerning traveller, the emphasis remains one of simplicity and elegance. ... more   less
