This upmarket guesthouse in a quiet central area offers the facilities of a larger hotel, but with greater intimacy and personalised service – so is a perfect place to relax before or after a safari.
Olive Grove Guesthouse‘s ten unostentatiously elegant rooms are tastefully and individually decorated, with stylish furniture and fittings; each one has an en suite bathroom, air-conditioning, satellite television, IDD telephone, minibar, tea and coffee-making facilities, room safe, 100% cotton bed linen and robes, and a down duvet. All can accommodate double or twin beds; some have a more modern, open-style bathroom, while others are more traditional.
The five Standard rooms on the ground floor are identical to the five Deluxe rooms upstairs but, being closer to the reception and restaurant area, are neither as private nor as quiet. One spacious Executive suite (upstairs) has its own private lounge and dining area, a separate bedroom and luxurious bathroom. The overall feeling is one of comfort, with all the facilities for a pleasurable stay.
Breakfast is served on the verandah or in your room. In the restaurant the open-plan kitchen allows you to see meals being prepared, while enjoying a drink in the adjacent guest lounge. Lunch and dinner menus are now fully à la carte – something unique for a guesthouse – and presentation is immaculate. Facilities include a bar, plunge pool and tranquil garden, WiFi internet access, a Wellness room offering a range of treatments, and laundry service. Numerous restaurants lie within easy reach, just a few minutes away in the downtown area.
