We had a great stay at the guesthouse and enjoyed the hospitality of Vina, More Blessings and Moses. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and was always cleaned nicely. The breakfast was a little limited but it was saved with a smile. There were plenty of shops and restaurants, everything is a walk away, which was lovely.

This guesthouse was absolutely delightful. Everything about it was charming and done with great care. The rooms and kitchen were warm and inviting even boasting a fireplace in the kitchen. The guesthouse was full every night which also spoke well of it. Mobby was the woman in charge and was always ready to help with setting up a tour, a... More

The only thing i have picked up, was the bathroom wasn't checked we where 2 people and there only 1 bath towel. The goodies in the bedroom (wine, chips sweets etc) where defiantly way over priced. We didn't had breakfast there but... More

My husband and I stayed at Sweet Olive during a recent business trip. We had a lovely stay and especially enjoyed having breakfast with the other guests. We were only sorry that we did not start the conversation earlier. Moreblessing and Getty gave us some wonderful german style muesli which we greatly enjoyed. I will recommend Sweet Olive to any...

As a family we do not want to sit at a table with strangers to have breakfast.

DSTV should be included in the rate as... More

We arrived at 9pm at night so the place was locked up. We called the number on the gate & someone arrived to check us in. We were worried about the street parking as it is a busy part of Seapoint and saw that as an immediate issue. I did ask the hotel when booking if there was off-street parking... More

Stunning house, quirky décor, lovely outside setting for excellent breakfast, we liked the communal table which encourages people to chat. The room was small and very hot, the fan provided made so much noise that we didn't use it. Shower didn't drain properly - Memory said she would have it seen to.
