"lovely breakfast"

1 night Arrived 18 Nov 2016
"This was the first stop on our trip and we were disappointed that there was no soap or shampoo for the shower.

After traveling for 3 days, we were really hoping for a good, hot shower." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"A nice oasis in Windhoek on way to airport"

1 night Arrived 3 Nov 2016
"Villa Violet is a little green oasis with private garden and open commons areas for relaxing and breakfast.

Parking is secure and convenient, and rooms are small but well equipped. The staff is helpful in dinner arrangements and providing advice on taxis and getting around Windhoek.

The location is in a nicely upscale neighborhoods, which means everything is behind electric fences and barbed wire, but it is conveniently located on a fairly quiet street." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia

"Perfect place for our arrival in Windhoek"

1 night Arrived 8 Oct 2016
"We stayed one night in Villa Violet at the beginning of our journey.

We arrived relatively late (around 19h) but the gatekeeper was immediately available to let us in and show us our room. He also directed us to a nearby service station and arranged for a taxi to a restaurant. Breakfast the next day was good.

Overall, their service is very good and the lodge ensures a good night's rest after an exhausting flight." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 1n in Zimbabwe

"Lovely B&B at Villa Violet."

1 night Arrived 17 Jun 2016
"This is a high class B&B at a location in Windhoek convenient for the city centre and the road to the airport.

The service, rooms and food were excellent. We arrived early afternoon following a long drive from Etosha and luxuriated in resting on the beds whilst watching the Euros (international ‘soccer’ for our transatlantic friends) on TV." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia
