We were driven to Villa Violet from the airport in Windhoek. We had been travelling a long time to get there, jersey-london Gatwick, London Heathrow-Joburg, Joburg-Windhoek so we were a little jaded. We were met with a very warm welcome and shown to our room. The room was clean and spacious and had everything we wanted. After a quick shower...

A simply furnished, spotlessly clean and very friendly B&B, providing a good breakfast, with an honesty bar and plenty of free tea, coffee and biscuits. The staff were welcoming, security is good and the B&B is within walking distance of Joe's Beer House. What more could you ask? :-)

Good overnight stop when either arriving from the International airport and before you start your long drive to the first Lodge or when returning from your safari. It is in Klein Windhoek and an easy drive to and from the airport. Nice and airy rooms around a courtyard. Very nice sitting area and breakfast nook with coffee and tea available...

This is a small B@B establishment in a nice suburb of Windhoek. It has a small dining room which serves all day coffee, tea and very nice home made cookies!! It should be recognised that this villa is sufficiently far from any kind of eatery that a car or taxi is an absolute necessity.

Villa Violet a good address in Windhoek when you arrive for your trip thru Namibia. The Villa is conveniently located and is the starting point for shopping and other tour preparations. It is also in walking distance to Joe's Beerhouse. Properly maintained rooms and freshly made breakfast in the morning.

This is a very laid back resort. Honesty bar is something I haven't come across for a long time. Not large and spacious but convenient for town. Rooms clean and not small. Security guard around all the time which cuts back on worrying. Worth staying in for a short as there doesn't seem to be much to do in Windhoek.

Nice guest house - pretty much as expected, comfortable and clean. No 'wow factor', but doesn't ever claim to be a luxury/ boutique hotel. Hot shower, safe and secure parking area, quiet neighbourhood. Staff very good. Disappointed to see, amongst leaflets in the reception area, a leaflet promoting trophy hunting - personally wouldn't return to an establishment that supports these...

Two families of 4, both travelling with 2 teens each. Last night's stay in Namibia. Very cute accommodation. Nice room overlooking lovely garden area, and great hot water in the shower. Rooms have glass fronts, so close your curtains and ear plugs are always helpful. Gated parking for your vehicle. Cozy common area room for reading. The ladies who cooked...

Excellent location, walking distance to Joes Beer House. Friendly service, rooms opening onto garden area which was very well kept. Adequate sized room. Very good wifi and excellent breakfast. Would stay here again if visiting Windhoek. Honesty bar is a good idea which we used.

Very much enjoyed our stay with Villa Violet. Your rooms, home cooked breakfasts, service and location were all lovely. Thank you so much for looking after my parents and I during our recent visit to Namibia. It was the perfect start and end of our trip.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Wireless Internet, secure parking and a laundry service are also available to guests. The rooms open out onto a patio with tables and chairs, and a small turquoise-blue pool glistens invitingly at the bottom of the garden.
