"Villa Violet was satisfactory"

1 night Arrived 25 Sep 2013
"The accommodation was clean and comfortable but the bathroom was rather cramped - there is no vanity slab so minimal space to put necessary toiletries.

Breakfast was average and our party was encouraged to all have scrambled eggs to minimize the effort.

The breakfast room / lounge and honesty bar facility were appreciated." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia

"Exceptional Service"

1 night Arrived 17 Aug 2013
"This was a very clean and nice. We arrived after dark because of grocery shopping, cooler/coolbox hunting and dinner. The security guard let us in and said we could check in in the morning.

I found the owner extremely nice. Her breakfast was superb. She made the best bread of the trip. She offered us the last of her ice and some of her home made bread and a cooler/coolbox. The internet access was consistent and fast enough...something we didn't not frequently have in Namibia. Loved the blow dryer. Few places had a blow dryer in Namibia."

"Villa Violet review"

1 night Arrived 18 Jul 2013
"We had a very warm welcome from Ben and Heidi. This was a really good and convenient place to stay in Windhoek after an overnight flight because it is on the airport side of the city.

We ate at Am Weinberg on Ben's advice which was excellent." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
