Absolutely perfect. Well maintained, fully equipped- if you are self catering everything is there except the food. Nice touches wine, milk, condiments even cling film and foil. Private Boma with barbecue and even wood. Owner Deborah has really thought about the detail. Best bit - own private verander with loungers. Highly recommend.

We can only say good things about our stay at Olive Grove House. My partner and I enjoyed a lovely 3 night mid-week break in Prins Albert. At first, we wanted to stay in the smaller unit, Little Pip, but being 3 nights we opted for the 2 bedroom cottage instead that offered more space and kitchen area. The owners, Dee & Daniel were unfortunately out of town but Elmarie, their right hand welcomed us with a big smile. The property is beautiful and well maintained. Although the owner’s house and Little Pip is also on the same double plot property the Olive trees hides the other guest’s unit and vice versa. We really appreciated the attention to detail, from the soaps, lotions, to the luxurious linens and towels, Nespresso Machine with capsules, fresh milk form the local dairy and homemade rusks with buttery notes. The decor is very tasteful and all the furniture functional, not just Pinterest idea. The indoor combustion oven served us well and Load Shedding was not an issue as the WiFi and Fridge did work. Without question we will be staying at Olive Grove on our next visit to Prince Albert, not just for the peaceful atmosphere and incredible luxury but because we appreciate to be spoiled when going away!

From the moment I started to enquire on availability, Deborah the owner was just delightful, I advised her that were doing a road trip, Thelma, Louise and Mom, she replied with a discount and included a complimentary chilled wine on our arrival. The cottage is beautifully decorated, with a wonderful pool and gorgeous garden, we ate dinner both nights in the lovely kitchen which is well equipped and we had a visit from the local moutanin Tortiese! I so loved the Olive Grove House and would defintely recommended staying here. WE WILL BE BACK.

We only stayed one night at the cottage of Deborah, which we regret, as it is a wonderful place to stay longer. The living room, the two bedrooms, the kitchen and the even the bathrooms (each bedroom has ist own) are decorated very nice so that you directly feel „at Home“. The terrace with view to the Garden with the Olive trees invites you to have a Rest and the well maintained pool in the Garden give a good refresh on hot Summer days. We definitly will come back for a longer stay, if Prince Albert (which is a lovely little town) is on the way on our next South Africa trip. Also Deborah and Daniel are very nice hosts.

Dee and Daniel have exquisite attention to detail, ensuring that your stay here (even if brief), is special in every way. The magnificent Cottage, with air conditioning for the hot Karoo days, and fireplaces and heaters for the cold nights, is beautifully appointed. Every convenience and luxury has been thought of. The most comfortable beds, Egyptian cotton linens, blankets and soft furnishings of the highest quality. The kitchen has all the necessities and things that one might need for a long or short stay, including Nespresso coffee maker and champagne cooler. An enormous blue swimming pool awaits you on the long summer afternoons. Dee and Daniel have the unique ability to make you feel like family, not guests. They go the extra mile to take care of anything you might need, including activities in the area, or a dinner reservation at the local bistro. I can’t recommend this property highly enough!

Once again, an absolutely wonderful stay at Olive Grove. We stayed here earlier this year, and when planning a quick weekend away trip at short notice, we didn’t even second guess the spot to escape to.

As always, we had an incredible time at Olive Grove, exceptional attention to detail (beautiful fresh flowers, lovely wine on arrival), the softest linen and most comfortable beds that you can just sink into and foot away. They’ve also made some improvements adding some extra comforts since our last visit, making for an even better stay. Lovely lap pool to beat the hot summer days and airconditioned interiors for the warmer nights.

Great property with absolutely superb hosts - they have gone above and beyond to make for yet another unforgettable stay in Prince Albert.

So looking forward to our next visit to your property and lovely town - fast becoming the getaway destination of choice when the city lights become too much!

I keep coming back to Olive Grove every time I come to Prince Albert! It’s absolutely stunning— Dee has GREAT style— there is loadshedding backup so that you can remain comfortable during power outages, and there is a WONDERFUL garden courtyard with a fabulous pool :-) Dee also leave out fresh flowers, great coffee, and other little treats throughout. You’ll feel well-cared for, while also still having a lot of privacy. Another major bonus are the outdoor dining spaces— especially at the cottage, which is under a beautiful set of grape vines!— but also at the Olive Pip, which has a gorgeous outdoor kitchen and dining space. As someone who has been coming to Prince Albert for years, I could not recommend this spot enough.

We stayed just one night at Olive Grove Cottage and were very sad to leave. Dee is a wondereful host and the cottage extremely comfortable with everything needed to braai - a must do in South Africa and particularly in the Karoo. The local butcher is excellent too!
The location is lovely with olive trees and a pool and Prince Albert is a lovely town to walk and browse the galleries and curio shops.

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Olive Grove House. The accommodation is superb and extremely comfortable with all amenities for a long or short stay. Having the garden with olive trees ready for picking was fabulous and the swimming pool so enjoyed on the hot days.
The property is perfectly situated in the charming town of Prince Albert with everything well within walking distance. Dee and Daniel are such wonderful hosts and their graciousness was so appreciated. A wonderful little bit of heaven.

This is an outstanding B&B. My wife and I spent three glorious nights in Prince Albert. Daniel and Deidre, our hosts were warm, welcoming and generous. We were blown away by the attention to detail, colour and creativity at Olive Grove House. After a hot and sweaty drive in the summer heat from Cape Town, we found ourselves in a little oasis, shaded; but with access to a glorious sun drenched pool. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
