Travellers' Choice
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.

We stayed at Olive Grove on the way into and out of our Namibian safari. It proved to be an excellent choice. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming and the guesthouse is quiet and lovely. We chose to have meals there and while the menu is somewhat limited, the food and service were excellent. They also helped us print our Covid test results needed for our flight home. Highly recommend!

We were looking for a quiet, peaceful place to stay in Windhoek and were delighted with the Olive Grove Guesthouse. Well located in a quiet suburb with easy access to the town centre and airport, the staff gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. The rooms are well designed and comfortable and the dinner and breakfast was delicious. I would happily recommend.

We stayed at Olive Grove Guesthouse for one night in late August 2021. It was a lovely experience! The location was excellent and perfect for easy walking or driving access to the center of Windhoek. The Christuskirche is about a thirty minute walk with minimal hills (a big plus for Windhoek!). It’s also a quick, five-minute walk from the popular restaurant Joe’s Beerhouse. The room was extremely comfortable with plush bedding, an air conditioner and a lovely bathroom with nice toiletries. We also appreciated the complimentary chocolate, port and purified water that came with the room. There’s also a small bar with a kettle for tea and coffee, which is appreciated especially if you’re arriving from a long flight! We also really enjoyed the outdoor space for relaxing in the early evening and having breakfast. There’s a tiny pool here as well (which we didn’t use). The food was also quite nice. The staff was also excellent, and in particular was helpful in providing us directions for parking our car into the tight (secure) space. All around an excellent place from which to see Windhoek.
