A warm Welcome started our stay at Cape Town. Room was given well before check in time. Amazing Hospitality. Clean Bedroom and Bathroom. Consciousness about saving Water is well appreciated. To top it off they even gave a special surprise to make our Honeymoon even better with Chocolates and Wine.

We stayed at Wild Olive in room 9 with our 7 month old daughter. The facilities were fantastic and the hospitality was second to none; we were truly made to feel at home. The location is great for anyone looking to stay in or near Central Cape Town. Fantastic breakfast.
