I should have stayed longer! The cottage was gorgeous and the hosts very kind and accommodating. The pool area is lovely and the extra touches (coffee, tea, homemade biscuits etc) were fabulous. Thank you!

I was visiting friends in Claremont and the Wild Olive Guest House seemed to be the perfect place to stay and be close. I was in Room #1 - it was spacious and clean. The night time was quiet and peaceful. I would definitely return and also recommend this to anyone who likes the Guest House experience.

Excellent all round stay was happy with service, comfort and cleanliness. Staff are all very friendly and make you feel at home. The breakfasts were superb and the rust bar gives a very homely feel. The lodge is very well positioned close to good shopping and restaurants. I will definitely go back.

Love staying at the Wild Olive. It's conveniently located for both business and leisure travel, and close enough to the airport. The facilities are world class, excellent catering and caring nature of the personnel makes it an enjoyable stay.

In a safe area and secure property. But you need a car because the city center is about 15 min. drive away. The breakfast buffet has all you need with home mead muffins. Eggs in every type can be ordered fresh.

Good location near Newlands rugby ground. Free parking and nice pool. Attentive hosts. Unfortunately the breakfast service on our second day could have been better. It was very slow and they made us feel as though they couldn't be bothered

This is a guesthouse where they know the real meaning of hospitality. The owners have ensured that the place is not only comfortable but also immaculately clean. Their staff are well trained in every department, from a beautiful warm welcome at the gate, right through to admin and the wonderful cooking and serving of meals onsite. We stayed over the...

We started and ended our 5 week trip to South Africa here in November and we are so glad we did. On arrival after a long flight Titus was very welcoming and showed us room 5 which we found perfect.
