Olive Grove

An excellent and well-established guesthouse in central Windhoek

Olive Grove

This friendly guesthouse, with superb facilities, is located in the leafy suburb of Klein Windhoek, just 45 mins drive from the international airport. A former home, it has been renovated into a contemporary, eleven-roomed guesthouse, complete with a large shaded terrace, an open-plan kitchen, a small plunge pool and a wellness treatment room. It shares the same views, of the olive grove and city skyline, as its neighbour, the Olive Exclusive. The food and wine list are fantastic, especially for a property of this size, and pricing category. The staff are attentive and welcoming.

The hotel

In addition to the friendly kitchen, there's also a large courtyard with lots of spots to curl up with a book, and a small plunge pool should you wish to cool down. The dining tables tend to get pushed together or shared as guests inevitably start to mix in this relaxed environment. There is a laptop for guests use.

The rooms

There are eleven ensuite bedrooms at Olive Grove. The five Standard Rooms are all on the ground floor, with five Luxury Rooms being up a level on the first floor, slightly away from the main areas. There is one Executive Room which has a large sitting room area to sleep children on a put-up bed. The rooms are neutrally decorated with a minimalist, modern flair.

Experiences
