Galton House

A great start to the holiday, the map was very clear and we found the property very easily from the airport. It is on the outskirts of town so if you wanted a short walk to the centre of town this is not the place for you. The rooms were spacious with a lovely wet room which gave a luxurious feel to the room.

The reception was very friendly and we quickly relaxed for our overnight stay.

The food was very good and effort was made to suit a number of our party who do not eat meat.

Nice reception room with plenty of space, Galton House has a modern feel but has enough traditional décor to make it feel more than a newly decorated hotel.
I will mention that the staff were really helpful when I managed to cut open my hand on the car lock which had jammed. The first aid kit was brought out with minimum fuss, my pride was a little more hurt than my hand.

Galton House review

Very easy to find. Very welcoming. Staff helpful. Food good. Room good.

Only downside (compared to the rest of the places we stayed) was that there was no view from the room or the lounge/dining area, though I imagine this may be the same in all the places in Windhoek.

Lovely place to stay

There just one night but found the place very nice and clean and the staff very accommodating.

Someone who drove in right after us got robbed as she got out of her car. I believe that problem was mentioned I prep notes.

Galton House review

The electric gate has now been fixed, I understand, and, I hope that there is now a bell or other alert system to advise management that guests have arrived.

Having said that, Galton House was very comfortable, with good food, decent white wine but rather poor red.

The staff were absolutely excellent and could not have done more to help than they did.

The room was clean, comfortable and spacious.

No problem in recommending this Guest House.

Galton House review

We returned to Galton House at the end of our stay and the staff were as efficient and friendly as when we had arrived.

They looked after our luggage all day as we had a late flight and allowed us to get changed in the changing rooms at the pool when we were getting ready to leave. They apologised that they did not have a spare room at that time or they said we could have used that. They were very helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending Galton House as a place to stay in Windhoek.

Galton House review

Comfortable rooms in a quiet corner of Windhoek. Good service for breakfast and we liked the fact that we were driven to and from the restaurant we visited on the final night of our stay.

When we arrived about on Sunday, we were disappointed to discover that the restaurant was closed so no food was available. It would have been helpful to have known about that in advance.
