When travelling for business, it's all about convenience and getting rest. So Olive Grove having a decent restaurant was a plus. That saved the stay. I have say upfront that I was warned about the only room being available being opposite the patio where meals etc where served so there would noise. Unless you're going to be staying up late,...

We booked into the Olive Grove for one night on our way for a bucket list trip to Etosha We requested a ground floor room for my parents which they got. Dark musty and the plumbing didn't work. They couldn't even turn the shower tap on which was part of the bath. Our room was upstairs and you turned the...

We have spent one night in this hotel, arriving from Europe and before visiting Namibia. The hotel is nice, beautiful and huge room and bathroom. Food was very good in the evening and for breakfast. A very nice and friendly experience in a quiet part of Windhoek. Just pay attention while getting out of the parking, as it was narrow...

This is our second stay, again only one night, after arriving in Windhoek and heading out to explore the country but did not disappoint, I wish we would have stayed longer! Dinner is still delicious, we even ordered the same Eland dish with pepper sauce, so so good! We had the luxury suite again, works out perfect for our kids,...

Having stayed at a number of hotels and guest houses in Windhoek I was pleasantly surprised by the 'funky' style, friendliness and efficiency at this guest house. Breakfast offers a variety of options not seen elsewhere. Dinner of Game and vegetables expertly prepared. This stay was exceptional value for money. Clearly the proprietor and staff care about their customers expectations...

AMAZING PLACE TO STAT. MY LUXURY ROOM WAS AMAZING! Loved the place. My bed was amazing and my room. Staff was absolutely professional. I was very happy here and you will be. I stayed previously at another B&B - which was slightly cheaper and disgusting, location is amazing. As a foreigner you must stay in KLEIN WINDHOEK - ITS SAFE...

Rooms and facilities are well located (out of city center in a relaxed area) and provide the right facilities as an entry point to Windhoek. Pretty big rooms and very good breakfast. Ideal place for the purpose of the visit.

Our travel agents had booked us in here for our first night in Namibia.It's perfectly OK if a little dated. We didn't have dinner but the breakfast is good and everyone was very pleasant.The bath/shower set-up is rather odd, as is the loo behind a curtain. To be honest, with a flight arriving mid-day, I'd have preferred to go straight...

Stylish Luxury Suite - partly in bad condition and not very clean. Service unfortunately only on demand. Non functional mosquito-net. Dirty swimming pool 😩 Very good breakfast and last but not least a car-wash for tip

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
