Galton House review

This was our stop-off on our route out of Namibia - this time we knew our way in to Windhoek, we felt more familiar with our situation, our room was a little larger and besides sorting out our slightly oryx dented car (see previous comments) it all felt easier.

Our previous comments about possibly preferring to be in a downtown location hold good, though this is no reflection on Galton House or its staff.

Galton House good alternative

We were accommodated here because the Elegant Guest House had got into a muddle with our booking. The guest house is very comfortable and clean but the rooms are fairly basic. The outside space is a great place to relax with a swimming pool and this is very much a plus. The breakfast was good.

It is on the edge of Windhoek, a bit far out and therefore a taxi is needed or you need to drive into Windhoek. It is convenient for travelling out to the north.

Excellent choice

This is a very well managed guest house which is obviously very popular with visitors. Situated in a residential area with private (gated) parking. Pool area.

Staff very helpful with restaurant suggestions and taxi service. We needed an early breakfast which they provided outside of their usual time. Free Wi-fi. Close to supermarket and petrol station. Highly recommended.

Galton House review

Great guesthouse towards the North of Windhoek. We dined here rather than go out on arrival after a long flight. This was fine.

A nice place to stop overnight on arrival

This was a very pleasant spot to spend a night after a difficult and tiring flight - clean, quiet, well-equipped in terms of amenities and with good food.

Perfect stopover

Whilst not luxurious Galton House was good value and provided everything that we needed for our first and last nights in Namibia.

The staff were helpful and professional and were flexible providing us with a light evening meal on arrival and the sandwiches we fancied on our last night.

Galton House review

The room was quite small with adequate but basic furnishings.

Tea and coffee were not provided in the room - only in the hotel kitchen.

We had to leave for an early flight before breakfast was served and although we had been promised a packed breakfast, this was not available on our departure.
