Lovely first night stay

After a long flight it was good to have a convenient first night stop at Galton House, which was easy to find. The room was very light and spacious, just by the pool. The welcome was warm and the breakfast good. The house was comfortable and decorated with a lot of style, including some very good photographs. Plenty of interesting books to look at. Wifi worked well.

Good location

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially with restaurant bookings , onward journey reservations etc..
The breakfast was good. The rooms are a bit small but the communal areas make up for the space.

Comfortable overnight in Windhoek

A comfortable guesthouse. Staff were welcoming and breakfast was good quality. The room was clean and comfortable, swimming pool freezing (as they all were at this time of year). There was a supermarket close by where we stocked up on food and water before heading off on our drive.

We would recommend the Stellenbosch wine bar and bistro which is a 10 minute drive away - great food and wine in beautiful surroundings.

Excellent stopover while in Windhoek

Galton House is a lovely place to stay while in Windhoek.

The atmosphere is so relaxed, there is plenty of space to relax, eating in the open plan kitchen is cozy.

Lovely place.

A bit out of the way

We seemed to be the only ones staying at Galton House , it felt in the middle of nowhere and we were given a tiny room, considering there were other empty ones.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

We did not want to return for our last night on the way back.

Quiet, clean and peaceful hotel

It was a great place to sort ourselves out for the flight home at the end of the holiday. Although it is a city hotel and doesn't have the stunning views of some of the lodges in Namibia, the location was quiet and felt safe. Rooms were spacious and clean with good showers. There were nice touches such as a tradiitional story and homemade sweets left in the room in the evening.
The small pool was a nice place to cool down.

Breakfast good and staff were very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat here in the evening as we wanted to go to Joe's Beerhourse but the staff were happy to book a table for us there. Helen (I think this was her name) was very welcoming.

Our room here at the end of the holiday was beside the carpark but was convenient for loading the car up.

The hotel was easy to find and just a short drive from the city centre.

[Ed: This review is largely a repeat of a review below as these travellers stayed here twice: once at the start of their trip, and again at the end.]
