We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Olive Grove. We did report a ceiling fan that would not turn off (it was cold) and our shower water pressure was bad. Both issues were not attended to and we were not given any feed-back. The staff also chose to build right outside our unit over a long weekend which was a strange...

Dear Lyndre M Thank you for your recent review, it is highly appreciated. I am so sorry to hear that you were not entirely happy.

If you are looking for unbridled luxury then this is not the place for you (and nor should it be at this price, so stop having such high expectations!). If you are looking for basic, but clean and comfortable in a stunning environment, at a reasonable price, then this is a great place for a stopover on the long drive...

What a pleasant surprise awaited us on arrival at Olive Grove. Thousands of olive trees, the beauty of the setting and great hospitality made this a memorable stay. The dinner of traditional Karoo lam and a good bottle of wine eased a chilly evening but warmed the soul. Staying for 1 night was far too short. Thanks to our hosts...

Such a lovely chalet with a great view. The service was outstanding and welcoming. The only downside was the shower/bath, the water was barely hot and the taps were dodgy and the shower was too weak to use. great sleep with electric blanket, very cold elsewhere.

We enjoyed the quiteness on the farm. The accommodation is excellent and we very much enjoyed the "Karoolam" for dinner in the dining area with an open fire to warm up the room. Although it was too cold to make use of the swimming pool, the area with "braai" facilities looked very relaxing. If only time allowed us, we would...

Having heard much about Olive Grove, we were excited to stay at this fine establishment. The lodging is a real oasis in the dry, sparse Karoo countryside. The Karoo is beautiful in itself but driving through Olive orchards with green lawns, spotting wildlife en route to the lodge was a real "wow' factor. Accommodation is basic yet tastefully done and...
