"Great overnight stay at Villa Violet"

1 night Arrived 5 Oct 2019
"Lovely little guest house for a first night’s stay and rest after the long haul flight from the UK. Good-sized bedroom with en-suite, plug sockets for charging phone etc, free WiFi, quiet area of Windhoek but close (walking distance).

Owners were away when we stayed but all the staff were helpful and welcoming. Excellent early breakfast, fresh fruits and juices, cereals, cooked breakfast. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits available all day in the lounge area. Our hire car was delivered to the Villa where there was ample secure parking. Within walking distance of two good restaurants, taxied back when it was dark.

Would stay here again. " See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia; 4n in South Africa; 3n in Botswana

"Very relaxed"

1 night Arrived 6 Sep 2019
"Good to have secure parking - a small, but well-designed guest-house providing all the basics. Made very welcome and felt pleasantly relaxed.

Recommended to try 'JOE'S Beerhouse' for our evening meal and the staff at Villa Violet kindly booked us in. Great place - well worth the visit - good food and an excellent way to finish our trip.

Villa Violet is very well placed to return to the airport." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

1 night Arrived 25 Jun 2019
"This B/B was clean and very basic. Very small room, no easy chair or room for one, uncomfy bed.

Friendly people, but we would have preferred to be in town for this one night.

Disappointing." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 8n in Zambia; 4n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
