Though my stay was short it was peaceful and pleasant. The room was beautiful and comfortable in a stunning setting. Breakfast was delicious and healthy with a wide range of foods and staff were friendly-an all round good experience.

My partner and I stayed at Wild Olive for just one night as I wanted to spoil him for his birthday. The staff at Wild Olive assisted me in making his day extra special by spoiling him with a baked treat (which he loved). The room was wonderful, clean and tastefully decorated. The guesthouse is situated on a main road...

Our second visit to Wild Olive was as good as the first visit. Our hosts were so kind and thoughtful; they welcomed us back with great warmth and made us feel so 'at home'. Our two rooms were perfect and our every need was taken care of. Great guest house in every way.

Excellent overall. Treadmill might need a service. The board on which you run makes a big noise. Also possibly mention what type of food can be prepared for supper if needed. I've been there for business plenty of times and personal once. Enjoyed every time.

Can not ask for a more convenient location in the Southern suburbs. Excellent facilities and a great room with everything you can possibly need. To top it off you will find the most friendly, helpful staff.
