"Convenient loaction at Villa Margherita"

3 nights Arrived 11 May 2010
"We were given rooms in the main house. Queen was large but warm with a sitting area in the bathroom for some reason, King was a suite of 3 rooms, rather unnecessary for 2 of us, and rather cold. Bathrooms well kitted out, as were bedrooms, just needed a bit more thought. Electric blankets provided but no-where to plug them in unless you go out and buy an adaptor so you can have the light on as well.

Very cold when we were there but they wouldn't light the fire in the hall. TV only seemed to have 1, occasionally 2, channels, sport and film. Trying to be luxurius but needs more thought.

Ate there the first night but didn't really enjoy it. Food took a long time to come and we were rather cold so the waiting was painful.
Location convenient for town centre.

Small courtyard area pleasant. Staff very nice. Internet access available and being improved." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia

"Villa Margherita review"

2 nights Arrived 13 Apr 2010
"Great guest house only 5 minutes walk from the centre of town. Do very tasty Italian evening meals which we took advantage of on our first night. They booked a Seal and Dolphin watching cruise from Walvis Bay for us which was very good although the dolphins were not too co-operative and only gave brief views.

Ate at the Tug on our second evening which gave excellent value for money and good quality food.

We both loved Swakopmund which had a great atmosphere and every one was very friendly even those selling trinkets on the streets." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

"Villa Margherita review"

2 nights Arrived 27 Sep 2009
"Very friendly, competent and helpful staff. Extremely spacious rooms with a great deal of individuality between them. General ambience very pleasant with attractive common areas, both inside and out.

No evening meals taken but breakfast excellent. Staff arranged and advised on a number of things for our group.

Evening meals must be pre-booked, but it should be noted that this service is not available on Sundays and that a number of restaurants in Swakopmund are also closed on that day.

Had a meal at the Tug seafood restaurant on one evening and the food, service and ambience were all excellent. Both it and the Villa Margherita are highly recommended." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
