Villa Violet was satisfactory

The accommodation was clean and comfortable but the bathroom was rather cramped - there is no vanity slab so minimal space to put necessary toiletries.

Breakfast was average and our party was encouraged to all have scrambled eggs to minimize the effort.

The breakfast room / lounge and honesty bar facility were appreciated.

Pleasant overnight stay

The room we were allocated was very small with a tiny bathroom, but sufficed for one night.

The breakfast was very good and the host/hostess friendly

Would consider alternatives if the stay was to be longer than 1 night

Interesting architectually

Last night stay in Windhoek and was very convenient and great service.

Close to restaurants and gas stations.

We left early and had a breakfast package waiting for us.

Very friendly and interesting building layout.

Exceptional Service

This was a very clean and nice. We arrived after dark because of grocery shopping, cooler/coolbox hunting and dinner. The security guard let us in and said we could check in in the morning.

I found the owner extremely nice. Her breakfast was superb. She made the best bread of the trip. She offered us the last of her ice and some of her home made bread and a cooler/coolbox. The internet access was consistent and fast enough...something we didn't not frequently have in Namibia. Loved the blow dryer. Few places had a blow dryer in Namibia.

Villa Violet review

It's a simple motel with a good location (especially for Joe's Beer house). Rooms are simple, breakfast is adequate.

The owner and his wife are friendly and helpful.

Small and friendly

Small and friendly. About 30 minutes walk from centre of Windhoek. Good breakfast. No restaurant nearby but good take away selection available and it's possible to eat the take away in the dining room.

Fastest WiFi we had in the whole of Namibia.

Villa Violet review

We had a very warm welcome from Ben and Heidi. This was a really good and convenient place to stay in Windhoek after an overnight flight because it is on the airport side of the city.

We ate at Am Weinberg on Ben's advice which was excellent.
