Landing in Windhoek, coming from Europe, you will probably land in the morning, but Olive Grove - by way of an example of the level of service you will receive from this excellent boutique hotel - will do everything possible to make your room available when by the time you arrive. It's a small thing but shows how Olive Grove will go the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
We loved Olive Grove. It is only a short drive to the centre of Windhoek, or to the nearby Joe's Beerhouse, so it's in a good location for the city, but really once you get to this hotel you'll just want to stay inside their walls as it's a great place to stay. The bedroom was lovely, complete with a massive stone bath, a huge shower, and the requisite giant bed. The pool area is also the perfect size for spending a few hours. The room even had some champagne waiting for us (as a honeymoon gift for us).
Olive Grove also have an excellent kitchen and we had dinner there on our first night rather than head out into Windhoek. We both went for the cape-malay kabeljou and it was exceptional. For breakfast there were, and I'm estimating here, ten different options, including Canadian pancakes, and a Namibian breakfast including boerewors and a lovely pepper and tomato mix.
In short this was a perfect start to our holiday and honeymoon where the staff couldn't do enough for us and the food was always lovely.
- 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
