Situated on the edge of the central business district in the north-east of Windhoek, the Olive Grove Guesthouse is a great base for seeing the vibrant Namibian capital. Ideal for work or a holiday trip, it has embassies, businesses, museums and tourist attractions all within easy reach. The railway station is close by, while the international airport a mere 45km away.
Designed with style-conscious travellers in mind, the 11 ensuite rooms here have an industrial-chic feel, with sleek polished cement bed bases, topped with crisp linens and plump pillows. Moroccan lamps, cane basket drawers and wrought-iron furniture adorn the spaces, while bathrooms continue the theme with copper taps and a rustic feel. Air-conditioning, LCD satellite TVs and free wi-fi bring it bang up to date, and mini-bars are stocked with everything from wine and nuts to proper filter coffee.
There’s plenty of time to relax and unwind here, from the plunge pool and terrace with sunloungers to the guest lounge with its comfy sofas. Massages can be arranged for your room too, on request. Getting out to see this fantastic city could not be easier, because drivers and guides are available to show you the best it has to offer. So whether it’s loading up the car with shopping from the designer outlets nearby or visiting historic sites and monuments, the staff here will always be happy to oblige.
Guests at the Olive Grove can wake up to a tasty breakfast of fresh fruit, hams, cheeses and cakes. Lunch and dinner are prepared by the passionate chefs too, and you can enjoy dishes made with African ingredients and recipes. Game, fish and local specialities are all on the menu for supper. Don’t miss the sumptuous desserts and fine selection of South African wines.
