A Karoo cloe-up

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Jan 2019
I stayed in the self catering chalets on the farm. It has a good setting with great views of the farm and mountains on the horizon. We saw an absolutely stunning sunset as the sun went down over an extremely dry Karoo. The main dam had no water in it. Walking in the veld along designated footpaths was great and informative. Hospitality was good with fire wood provided. Would recommend a weekend stay rather than just a sleepover. So much to see. The smell of the air and the taste of the water is unique. Will certainly go back.
Date of stay: January 2019
Room Tip: Self catering cottages have best view from stoep.
Trip type: Travelled solo

I have stayed at Olive Grove Guest Farm twice now having only recently found out about the option in the Beaufort West area. I recommend Olive Grove highly, it is a most pleasant stopover, the hosts are very friendly, efficient and everything works according to plan.

Olive Grove Guest Farm was a gem of a find and the perfect place to stop and refresh on our way to Cape Town. The food, service, accommodation and surroundings were amazing. Definitely staying over at the Guest Farm every time we travel down to the mother city!

The farm is beautiful. Unfortunately the self catering cottages do not compliment the farm at all. Décor out dated. Shower over the bath - terrible. Beds and lounge furniture most uncomfortable.Reception staff awesome.Portions of dinner too big for ladies. Dining room decor also needs some attention.
