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.

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.

Galton House Windhoek

Comfortable and friendly, good taxi service into town for a meal.

Only criticism is promised tea and homemade cake but no cake only rusks!

Galton House review

A relaxed start to our trip with very welcoming staff, a short drive into Windhoek but parking is easy in the centre.

Pleasant option in Windhoek

This is a pleasant, somewhat sterile but functional b&b located out of town in the residential Eros district (nowhere near Eros Airport, rather confusingly). The rooms are quite basic, but the shower is good, there’s lot of hot water, and the bed is comfortable. The pool is small.

There is an open kitchen/dining area, where it’s not clear whether you help yourself to tea and coffee, or beers from the fridge, or wander around looking for service. Breakfast was delicious, although service was painfully slow (45 minutes).

You can also take dinner here, which is nice, with a range of decent, well-priced wines, and avoid the hassle of taxis into town and back. Staff are all very friendly.

Galton House review

Nice place to stay in the city.

We travelled with a baby and on arrival there was a baby cot ready with some toys in it. We felt this was a nice touch.
