"Villa Violet review"

1 night Arrived 6 Nov 2023
"Really lovely small boutique hotel.

A lovely stopover for the start and end of your trip to Namibia. Nice gardens to relax in - and a small pool if needed.

Excellent breakfast, with freshly cooked eggs to your preference.

Secure car parking, very clean- absolutely no problem in returning to this guesthouse if we visit again" See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Villa Violet review"

1 night Arrived 4 Nov 2023
"The receptionist was very helpful when we arrived and showed us around the property. She also booked a taxi for us to visit Joe's Beerhouse later in the day.

The room was very spacious and comfortable and just what we needed after a long day's travelling. The honesty bar is a good idea. Breakfast the following day was beautifully prepared and set us up for the long journey ahead." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Villa Violet review"

1 night Arrived 20 Oct 2023
"Villa Violet was a good choice for a one night B&B stop over in Windhoek after an overnight flight from Frankfurt.

It was straightforward locating it on driving from the airport, which was important as a first experience after taking over the rental car. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, the staff were friendly and gave good advice on transport to and from a local restaurant, and breakfast was good.

The owner was very helpful the following morning in giving advice on the best route to Sossulsviel, highlighting it on our road map." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 1n in Zimbabwe

"Villa Violet review"

1 night Arrived 12 Sep 2023
"Very helpful staff who prepared us a packed breakfast for our early start, and a restaurant the night before.

We went exploring Windhoek which was interesting although the main museum was disappointing. There was a lack of narrative to support the photos.

We returned to the Stellenbosch wine bar which was excellent." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Villa Violet review"

1 night Arrived 18 Jun 2023
"A quiet and safe respite from a bunkered and barb-wired city.

Windhoek lacks the walkability of Swakopmund and is less pleasant to explore but there are lovely spots here and there and Villa Violet was one of those places.

Quiet and comfortable room, gentle and helpful staff, and proximal to the route to the airport for the next morning." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe; 1n in South Africa

"Villa Violet review"

2 nights Arrived 22 May 2023
"As we arrived quite late because of the hassle with Europcar and as we had no GPS yet, we got lost in the dark,but a lovely local driver was kind enough to show us the way to Villa Violet.

Lovely guest house, very well equipped, lovely staff who suggested we could be delivered our dinner directly at our place.

A place to be highly recommended ." See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia

"Villa Violet - a flying visit"

1 night Arrived 12 May 2023
"Villa Violet was comfortable and a useful overnight stop to refresh after long flights before setting off on our road trip the next day.

In our opinion it is suitable as a one night stop over - it’s in the suburbs of Windhoek so if you wanted to see the city perhaps not the best location." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
