Villa Margherita review

Our view: 7-8/10. very good B&B. House is 1903 and renovated about 15 years ago. A comfortable guest house and reasonably priced. We stayed in the Lord Nelson room, en-suite with separate sitting room. Reasonably well appointed, very good WiFi. the room had a TV! Good location only 10 mins walk to seafront. Breakfast was fine, nice staff. Bed was very firm, too hard.

Disappointing

Our main disappointment at Villa Margherita was the room. We were allocated a bedroom in a building at the back of the property; the first night we were on our own, the second night the other bedroom was taken and the plumbing noise from the adjacent bathroom was disturbing and not acceptable. Our room was not particularly clean but worse was that the decor was exceedingly tired. For example, there was a split in the upholstery of both armchairs and the bathroom tiling was quite cracked.

The breakfast was not a buffet so all food had to be delivered from the kitchen meaning we were served our cereals and cooked breakfast at different times. Not ideal for a relaxing meal. The quality of the food was OK.

The staff were friendly and helpful and were kind enough to give us an early breakfast on the day we went kayaking.

Our disappointment was the quality of the room which was probably compounded as Villa Margherita receives accolades in many travel guides; I even read one in Travel Namibia (I think that's the title of the magazine) while in Namibia which states it's the author's favourite place to stay in Swakopmund.

Villa Margherita

A German townhouse attractively decorated in the middle of Swakupmond. We only had breakfasts but they were good.

We went to Sandwich Bay with Turnstone Tours. It was a good day out but it would have been better if they had called us to say that we should start an hour earlier because of the tides. As it was, we had a short time at the Bay and a hair-raising journey along the coast to beat the incoming tide. I have written to Turnstone about this.

Villa Margherita review

There were 3 of us and we were given a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment, everything was retro and a lot of the old furniture from the fifties. In keeping with the style of the building and era. Good breakfast, kettle in room. Walking distance to town and restaurants.

We did an enjoyable drive along the beaches and sand dunes.

We enjoyed Swakopmund, it was peaceful, full of old German architecture, nice beach, good feeling.

Excellent - A great day trip!

Wow this trip was great and I was uncertain I wanted to add it.
This was the biggest surprise of the trip. So glad we went.

Villa Margherita review

Fantastically friendly staff who were very helpful. The rooms (King & Queen) were huge and very comfortable. The best though was the location being very central with a number of excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. 10minute walk to the beachfront and then you could walk or run along the promenade or if going north, go all the way to a great shopping centre 4-5km away (the last few 100 metres is on sand though).

Would stay here again.

Whilst here, we organised a pelican Point kayaking trip for these travellers. They commented:

Exceeded our expectations

Just do it. On our drive to the seal colony we learnt about the local salt industry and the history of Walvis Bay.

We saw greater and lesser flamingoes, jackals and thousands of seals. The seals swam around us, jumped onto our kayaks to hitch a lift and we tickled their tummies. What a privilege. Jeanne was fantastic. She took photos and videos of our experience which she emailed to us later in the day and provided sandwiches and drinks after kayaking.
