Olive Grove Guest House

Windhoek - Namibia

Olive Grove is a guets house situated close to the city centre in a quiet, peaceful area. It is a good choice of accommodation in Windhoek and and the rooms cater for every need of the traveller, their emphasis is one of simplicity and elegance.

For example, the inside lounge is tastefully decorated, with comfortable chairs and a welcoming fireplace. There is a guest computer available, so emails and photographs can be exchanged with family and friends back home. Guests can also help themselves to drinks from the 'honour bar.'

The open-air lounge, spa bath, plunge pool and tranquil garden, all invite the visitor to unwind and relax, either under a warm Namibian afternoon or a beautiful, star-lit sky.

Olive Grove's wellness room offers a selection of professional services and therapies, especially designed to de-stress and recuperate guests, perhaps after a long flight or at the end of an arduous and adventurous holiday. Their resident therapist will rejuvenate and invigorate even the most tired and aching body, with a combination of hot stone treatments, Swedish massages, facials, manicures, reflexology and a host of other balanced and healthy treatments.

Accommodation is in 10 rooms. One of Olive Grove's main features is the large veranda in front of every room, with tables and chairs for 'al fresco' dining. There is no better way to end a perfect day at Olive Grove Guest House, than to slip under a down duvet and onto to those 100% cotton sheets. There are:

  • Standard Rooms: Each of the 3 Standard Rooms has remote controlled air-conditioning, direct dial telephones, multi-channel satellite television, tea/coffee making facilities, a mini-bar, snack bar and a private wall-mounted safe.
  • Luxury Rooms: The 7 Luxury Rooms have the same furnishings and similar facilities as the Standard Rooms all presented with an abundance of style.
  • Executive Suite: The executive suite is large and spacious complete with private lounge and dining area, separate bedroom and luxurious bathroom. For the travelling executive, the private lounge is an excellent venue for small meetings or a convenient 'home office', equipped with an 84cm flat screen TV, DVD player/mini Hi-Fi, and complimentary Amarula, sherry and mineral water. The facilities are similar to the standard/luxury rooms.

Residents of the guest house can enjoy lunch or dinner on the verandah, and meals can be complemented with a hand-picked selection of fine South African wines.

There is also a laundry service, airport (and other) shuttle service and secure on-site parking (ideal for you vehicle rented from Windhoek International Airport)
