I really enjoying the peace of mind that the guesthouse offers me. The service is amazing and the view of the mountain is worth breathtaking. Its conveniently situated while also being nicely tucked away at the same time.

Multitasking staff are warm & friendly as are the owners of this establishment. The rooms are comfortable & well proportioned with lots of little extra touches beyond the norm. Breakfasts are excellent with a wide variety of everything, juices, yoghurts, cheeses, nuts & seeds, cereals, breads & cooked to order breakfasts.

This was my second stay at the Wild Olive Guest House. When I realised that I needed a place to stay overnight at mid-trip my first thought was the Wild Olive Guest House. I arrived late and left early, but the service was great and the staff members friendly - even in the middle of the night! They do not...

I stayed at the guest house only for a night, but found the accommodation more than suitable. Everything was clean and the garden cottage was very modern and plush. Would definitely stay here again, very convenient for work, close to the airport and city centre.

Colonial style guesthouse close to the city of Cape Town with great view of the Table Mountain and nuce pool in the garden. Although close to a crossing located it is very quiet during nights. Great atmosphere in the rooms with air-condition . Breakfast is also very good.

This is the 4th time in 3 years that I have stayed at the Wild Olive. Having tried a number of B'nB's in Cape Town over the past 3 years, this is still my favourite. Whenever I book a trip to Cape Town and find that the Wild Olive is fully booked,(which is often the case) I am always disappointed....

What a delightful stay. Check-in was efficient. My room was spacious, very clean and had wonderful little touches such as a cookie jar filled with delicious home-baked cookies. Breakfast was varied and plentiful. The location is very convenient, close to wonderful restaurants and a 15 minute drive to the city centre.

Yes, this place has good service and good breakfast. But we never ever saw the sky from our room. Two windows were painted white. Also the window towards the back yard (se photo). We love the sky, so we did certainly NOT like this! The room was small but the beds were comfortable. Another issue that has never happened to...

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. You have booked a room in an old character house in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. In this area you will find many of these old residential houses which were converted to guest houses. As a matter of fact, not every room does have a beautiful view. Two of our rooms are...

What a delightful Guesthouse Not only are the rooms beautifully furnished, clean and air-conditioned but the staff is helpful, friendly and efficient. To our surprise we were handed a delicious menu to order breakfast from overlooking the pool the next morning. Thanks a lot, you will see us again.
