Peaceful and tranquil
Robert Smyth, United States of America - 22 January 2017
Great place to unwind after a long drive from Joburg to Cape Town.
What a gem!!
Debbie Lombard, South Africa - 19 December 2016
What a special find! Loved this place, stayed 2 nights, the perfect stop over to lose the Jhb stress! Lovely unit, great food, helpful staff. We'll be back!
Nice and Improved
Harry Gwala, South Africa - 11 October 2016
We overnighted in one of the self catering cottages at the Olive Grove Guest farm for the second time. The place has a lot of facilities, including the trails, which keep the kids happy. Its distance from town ensures quiet and peaceful sleep, but you must buy everything you need in town before proceeding to the farm.
Karoo Tranquility
Harold Barnard, South Africa - 05 September 2016
We overnighted at this lovely olive farm on the N12 just outside Beaufort West on our way to PE.
We booked a self catering unit and did not eat in the restaurant.We were provided with wood and fire starter for our braai and really enjoyed the setting, particularly the amazing stars.There was a waxing moon with Venus in all her glory just to the left of the moon.Stunning.
The Porcupine trail is lovely to walk- good shoes necessary and some minor inclines.
We bought a number of their olive products in the shop.
Overall a great place to stopover or weekend.

Lux in amongst the Olive Trees
Sarah Menhinick, South Africa - 29 March 2016
This was our last stop on our road trip before heading home back to CPT. A little unexpected but welcomed luxury at a very good price. Dinner was superb as well as breakfast. Warm friendly staff, the owner even took the time to chat to us twice to ensure we were enjoying our stay. We highly recommend this establishment and will be back  to this well hidden gem :-)

Wonderful stop over
Bronwyn Manning, South Africa - 29 March 2016
We stayed at Olive Grove for just one night en route from the Cape.  We were pleasantly surprised by how accommodating they were upon a change of booking and how well they communicate!  Clean, neat unit with everything you need.  Lovely place for the scottie to run around and explore, with a stunning sunset too!  I would recommend this guest farm to anyone looking for a comfortable overnight stay during a long journey.

Colette Fergusson, South Africa - 14 October 2015
I can only say good things about Olive Grove. It is a peaceful place.The management and staff are friendly and helpful.The accommodation is comfortable and clean. The food was delicious "home cooked" style. One night was not enough and I plan to go for a longer visit next time I am in that part of the country. .

Really nice

Really enjoyed our stay at Olive Grove. Even though just a stay over, the suite was very comfy, clean and staff was very friendly. Would definitely recommend to other people as a destination.
TOMMY DREYER, South Africa - 10 March 2015
Pleasant stay, staff very efficient and courteous. Stayed in chalet. 

Just awesome
Masame Malekane, South Africa - 18 February 2015

A great stay

Great stay, thanks!
Amazing Service
Nazeem Abrahams, South Africa - 03 January 2014
What a pleasure it was to stay at Olive Grove. The location and facilities was impeccable. We enjoyed every single moment at this Guest Farm - even the owner were hospitable enough to bring us a snack way after dinner whilst we are having a nightcap (and starving). No rush or pressure was put forward when we had to check out! Service like this hard to find and there's many accommodation facilities that can learn a thing or 2 from Olive Grove. Would certainly recommend to anyone wanting to overnight or stay a while in Beaufort West. Have a look out for the olives and related products on sale!
A very pleasant stay
Martin Oosthuizen, South Africa - 12 December 2013
We had a very enjoyable stay. Our room was comfortable, and we enjoyed the environment with room to walk and enjoy nature. Our hosts, Ian and Sonia are charming. We will be back!
Olive Grove Guest Farm
Sharon Morgan-Evens, South Africa - 04 December 2013
olive Grove was in a lovely setting, conveniently close to the highway. The rooms were well appointed and the lamb shanks were the best ever!
Lovely place, wanted to stay longer!
Michel Stroobants, South Africa - 02 December 2013
Very big olive and game farm and very well kept. Friendly and helpful owners. Nice house with 2 bedrooms, bathroom with their own olive soap, shampoo etc. Complete kitchen. braai and nice "stoep". Wifi in lobby and restaurant. Pity we couldn't stay longer.
Will always come back to Olive Grove Guest Farm
Rentia van Jaarsveld (for Sanet van Rooyen), South Africa - 21 October 2013
As always we really enjoyed our stay - just too short. Everything is excellent, from reception to dinner, great rooms and breakfast. A special mention of Stella's lamb shank - it was very tasty - excellent.
Ann Germishuys, South Africa - 16 October 2013
Everything was beyond our expectations!
Poor hospitality
lesley anderson, South Africa - 18 May 2013
Nice location spoiled by lack of interest in the guests and no personal touch. Room lacked charm or any style.
Geoffrey Stapley, Switzerland - 01 May 2013
Comfortable room, friendly helpful staff and very good food. Lovely peaceful setting.
Great experience
Anilia Boshoff, South Africa - 18 April 2013
We were so glad we booked (even that we were sceptical about travelling outside Beaufort it is sometimes easier in town. We DID appreciate the fact that they could accomodate us with Dinner when we arrived...that was so we only had bokkoms and gemmerkoekies in our car!
Great place
Stephen Crook, South Africa - 09 January 2013
Great place down a 2 km dirt road so nice and quiet with no passing traffic or noise from the national road. First class dinner and good breakfast.
Claire Van Deventer, South Africa - 08 December 2012

Absolutely fantastic at Olive Grove Guest Farm
Samantha Goeke, South Africa - 11 July 2011
My husband, daughter and I had the privilege of staying overnight while en route to Cape Town from Pretoria. The reception we received made us feel at home instantly. The food was excellent and the accommodation in the suites was comfortable and clean.
Stop over
Anonymous, South Africa - 13 December 2010
Stayed for one night. The Guest Farm is very well managed. Dinner and breakfast are good value for money.
Enjoyed our stay
Sakkie Griebenouw - 29 January 2010
This was our second stayover and as previously experienced we really enjoyed our stay .The quite and clean surroundings was really an bonus , then also the well prepared food was really tasteful and enjoyable . We will definitely make use of the facilities in future .
Our planned and later unplanned stopover at The Grove
Johannes staphorst, South Africa - 29 September 2009
Stayed at the Grove overnight on our journey to Stellenbosch. We were so impressed by the facilities and the hospitality of our hosts that we decided to stay there on our way back to Pretoria. This was not part of our initial travel plan but an on the spur decision rather late in the afternoon on our return trip. A quick cell call confirmed that a room was available. We arrived at about 21h00 that evening and found a friendly staff member waiting for us. Excellent service and great meals. The Grove is now our preferred stopover to the Cape.and plan to spend a more prolonged stay there there on our next trip.
Best stop over on our honeymoon
Juan-Emil Saayman, South Africa - 18 May 2009
The three days spent at this guest farm was wonderful. It was a wonderful part of our honeymoon. The accommodation at the guest farm was great. The room was well decorated, well furnished and spotless. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was wonderful, true South African cuisine. The guest house even prepared their braai facilities for our use, with well prepared food and attention to detail on our second night. On request we received a packed breakfast for an early morning game drive into the Karoo National Park. Although this is a working farm we didn't have any disturbance from any of the farm workers during our stay. If you do stay at this farm, do buy some of their great produce. In my opinion their olives and olive oil taste better then the products you buy at Woolworths. I would recommend to anyone making the trip from the Cape back to Johannesburg to stop over in Beaufort West, but don't stay in the town.
Beautiful surroundings
Elizabeth Sawdye - 29 January 2009
We were warmly welcomed by Rona and the dogs and the room was lovely. However I was disappointed by the food - in general I found it overcooked and overseasoned. It certainly did not live up to the pictures on the website.
Olive Grove Guest Farm
Piet Bezuidenhout, South Africa - 13 September 2008
Excellent! Comfortable, made to feel at home, food fantastic. 2nd visit.
Very good
John White, South Africa - 20 April 2008
The units were immaculate in cleanliness and fittings, much like a home from home, would have liked it to be a little more rustic, regardless the stay was very nice and the evening meal excellent. Would recommend that a visit would not be complete without a sundowner on the top of the Porcupine Trail. Purchased many Olive products for home use.
Highly recommended
Kathryn Walker, South Africa - 15 January 2008
Our Stay at Olive Grove Farm was really special. The host and hostess are really lovely people, the food was superb and the chalet was more than comfortable. We highly recommend Olive Grove Farm and will definitely stay there again
