Very charming and peaceful place. Very friendly staff and lots of small attentions to guests. The area is quite. The only thing that I would improve is the road indications. The guesthouse is not really easy to find.

I spent one night at Olive Grove while on a business trip to Namibia. Reception was pleasant and friendly and my room was available after a 10 minute wait. I was quite surprised on entering my room to find out that a large part of the room and its fittings were constructed from cement! The bed is a large cement...

We stayed here one night after our week long trip in Namibia before flying out to Botswana. It did not go well from the start. When we arrived and tried to check in we were told that there were no rooms reserved for us and that they were full. As we were trying to find our confirmation from our travel...

Dear thewanderingfamily4 I have read your review a few times now, but I find it so difficult to picture any of the comments to be associated with Olive Grove Guesthouse and especially my staff. I have so much faith in my staff, because they prove on a daily basis to be excellent, accommodating, friendly and helpful, this is evident by...

We had a quick 12 hr stay here after landing in Windhoek and heading out the next morning to a lodge outside of the city. The staff was so lovely and made our short stay very pleasant. We got there just in time for dinner, which was delicious, and they were very patient and accommodating with our two very young...

Stayed here on the first and last nights of our Namibian trip. Most people there were using it on the same basis. Beautifully set out guest house where every room seems distinctly different. Both of the rooms we had were of a high standard with lots of interesting design features - on our last night we had the room that...

We stayed three nights at Olive Grove. We found the place clean, unique, personal, and intimate. The two diferent rooms we had were very exotic with their concrete theme. We ate every night at the OG because there was no better place to eat. We were treated as valued guests and that is important to us.

Lovely guest house, very friendly staff, quirky concrete rooms set in a lovely courtyard. About 40 min drive form Windhoek airport so a good option to stop over on your first or last night in Namibia. Secure parking. staff very helpful in booking restaurants and arranging taxis. Breakfast was lovely.

excellent small hotel/guest house. Great staff. Especially good breakfasts and other meals. We have now stayed in this hotel 4 separate times. This trip was 4 nights. We think the place is looking a little tired and needs upgrade work. Our room especially could use a serious redo such as updated paint as well as some kind of wall art....

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
