Nice guest housePosted Mar 7, 2015
Pros: Personal touch
Location: Reasonable location, about 20 minutes by taxi from V & A Waterfront. Near Kirstenbosch Gardens.
Very warm welcome, facilities were fine but could do with updating, which is ongoing. Beautiful gardens and pool .Good breakfast choice. Decent shower and bath. Very comfortable.

Great stayPosted Mar 1, 2015
Pros: Room facilities, pool
We stayed for one week with our two daughters, 11 and 13. Our girls loved the pool and we all enjoyed the lovely freshly cooked breakfasts. The rooms were pleasant and well equiped, with the added convenience of free Wifi. For us the location was perfect: 15-20 mins by car from many things like Tablemountain, airport, V&A waterfront etc. Although next to a busy (daytime) road, we found it nice and quiet in the garden after 19:00 or so. In short: excellent place for daytripping in and around Kaapstad.

Four nights at the Wild OlivePosted Nov 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
My room was a little old-fashioned (wardrobe, not closet, wicker headboard and side tables) but quite comfortable. Instead of a chocolate at bedtime there was a carafe with a serving of sherry. The room was high-ceilinged and quiet. The hotel was able to supply the plug adapter I needed. The breakfast was everything that might reasonably be asked for. Good Internet service at no extra cost.

Great place to stayPosted Apr 28, 2014
Despite the excellent reviews I was still pleasantly surprised when I arrived at Wild Olive. It's a great place to stay and great value. Also, pleasant location (unless you want to be near the CBD) in which case it is a 15 minute cab ride. The room I stayed in was like a that of a boutique hotel and the bed was really comfortable. The staff were very helpful and very friendly and the breakfast was very good. I stayed in one of the rooms at the back of the property so was very quiet. Those rooms at the front may experience a bit more road noise, although it wouldn't be that busy outside of rush hour. Don't hesitate to stay here.

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome. Breakfast was delightful and we were given lots of help in where to go each day.
