I’ve spent two nights at Villa Westend in September and learned, that the house is owned by Family Bruns since its building. For quite some time it has been leased but since this year its run by Family Bruns again. And you can tell, that they love what they do right away. To come clear: the furnishing is quite old and some of the bathrooms are plastik cubes within the room which I found quite funny. You’ll find the ground floor with the breakfast room and lounge even more appeiling. The furnishing is colourful, tasteful and unique. It’s planned to renovate the whole building and rooms within the next years. By the way: the breakfast has been great. There has been a choice of rolls, bread, various spreads, cheese, eggs, sausages, fruits, vegetables and so on. That goes with delicious coffee and tea. And the location couldn’t be better – the beach and the famous “Milchbar” are just a few meters away and there a even a few rooms with sea view. You can rent a bike in a store right in front of the hotel which comes in super handy if you plan a trip. All the restaurants, stores as well as the western beach are just minutes away. But the best thing about Vila Westendare its charming owners and staff. Absolutely everybody has been so sincere and helpful which makes you feel like home. Another great thing is, that the prices of Villa Westend are really fair in contrast to many other hotels in Norderney. This is due to the fact that the house is owned by the family since many years and the owners are not planning to compete with the many other hotels which are super fancy and impersonal but rather continue being a charming guesthouse. Therefore, if you’re looking for a individual, charming place with a perfect location, you’ve found the perfect place!
