If you want something different with a beautiful artistic feel to it the Sweet Olive Guesthouse is right for you. I had only one night but will be visiting soon again. Very much central see point and green point so walked all over during the day.

A locally decorated Guesthouse, feels like being home! Great breakfast! Staff were very helpful. Location is great, 15 min drive from anything in the city. Only thing, Wi-Fi should be complimentary. Recommended!

Quirky decor but very comfortable with small pool, excellent breakfast and friendly staff. Handy for restaurants, tourist bus and 40 mins walk to V A Centre. WiFi available and works in rooms. Quiet location just a few mins walk from Main Road and 5 mins from sea front.

We stayed in The Superior room which was very spacious and had a comfortable king size bed. The ensuite bathroom was also very spacious with bath, big shower, bidet and toilet.

This was my favorite accommodation during my month in South Africa. The place is gorgeous, all the rooms are finely furnished and adorable, we loved the intimate home-cooked breakfast as well as the common areas and the patio. Besides being really atheistically pleasing, the best part of Sweet Olive was its staff. The staff were all courteous and helpful and...

We stayed here for 2 nights before setting off on a cycling trio. Whilst away from the hustle and bustle of the city this quirky but very comfortable guest house is a gem. Great breakfast and staff. Only gripe is paying for wifi!
