Olive Grove Guesthouse

David Aulen

"Olive Grove worked well. The food was excellent and the rooms were nice. Enjoyed the proximity to Joe's Beerhouse."

David Sims

"We really enjoyed Olive Grove - the food was delicious!"

Fedele Di Maggio

Olive Exclusive, • Service – manager (and owner?) pleasant and helpful • Rooms – very nice and spacious • Communal areas – nice and spacious • Internet access - good • Food - good • Beverages – if I remember well wine included with dinner was good but simple • Game drives/activities - na • Guides - na • Logistics – as mentioned the airport pickup was ±15’ late. Another driver called our driver who eventually arrived. The car was very basic but clean. Worse part is that he was completely lost and we ended up touring the city, luckily without traffic. No issue with drive to airport

"Olive Grove was excellent and, although I didn't want to waste the day, they both provided much needed rest."

Joanne Drinkwater

"The Olive Grove is a great place to stay in Windhoek - can't recommend it strongly enough too."

Melanie Lim

"Very nice and homey. Wifi is a God send! Highly recommended."

Jared Knab

Namibia was incredible! Olive Grove was exactly what we wanted and just perfect. They even gave us a free upgrade on our room for the second night. The staff went out of their way to make sure the trip was truly special and memorable. We would highly recommend the guesthouse and Namibia in general.

Stephen Hopwood

"Olive Grove Guest House was lovely, staff very friendly and helpful."

Joanne Parker

"Awesome guest house, so much, that I've shown friends that want to build something similar in Tanz, the lay out and have gone into detail about the great vibe of the place."

Lauren de Waal

The trip was really amazing, I loved it. Zambia was welcoming as I remembered it. The Zambezi Sun is stunning, and offers so many activities that we were never stuck for something to do. I love it there and would recommend anyone goes to stay there. Some of my other favourite hotels were the Olive Grove Guest House in Windhoek - It was beautifully set up and the manager, Brian, really tries to make everyone feel welcome.

"Olive Grove Guesthouse had good food was very comfortable and have very nice people.They really have good ideas in terms of decoration. A destination we will recommend and next time we fly to Windhoek, we would like to stay there."

Nevine Hunt

It was fabulous, quality, stylish, excellent staff and service. We would happily have stayed here the 2 nights instead of Anib as we spent the first day after arriving chilled by the teeny tiny pool on the very comfortable loungers. The bedrooms are simple but quality, huge bath. Breakfast was really excellent quality (huge choice of cooked breakfasts - very nicely done). Lovely touches too.
