Perfect place for 1st night in Windhoek

We arrived tired at Galton House after a 30 hours journey and arguing about the car in the airport. So much the more, we appreciated the warm welcome in Galton House. We got rooms 8 and 9 which had a convenient connecting door for families. Everything was beautiful and tastefully decorated in high quality materials. Spotless clean. Despite our late arrival, we got a lovely tasty 4 course dinner on the spot with good South African wine. The day after, a nice breakfast. We also noticed a nice pool area. All in all a great place we would happily visit again. Only minus was a very slow internet (if you need net, perhaps a star less)

Good overnight stay

Very nice people.

We stayed just one night and arrived late due to flight delays and thus late pick-up of hire car so only meal was breakfast. Arrived in the dark and very difficult to find Galton House despite being in the correct street as unable to see any prominent sign to indicate its location.

Easy to get to from the airport.

Good dropping off point

We stayed at this guest house on two occasions. One night on arrival in Namibia and one night before we left. All the staff were friendly and helpful and they booked Joe’s Beerhouse for us and arrange a taxi to take and bring us back. The first room we stayed in was near the parking area and the second near the pool. The rooms we stayed in were quiet, clean, light and spacious. Galton House is in a very quiet residential area and it felt very safe, especially with the locked gate. We were however told not to walk around after dark, hence the taxi to Joe’s.

Breakfast was good with a choice of ordered cooked or continental buffet. We didn’t eat at Galton in the evening so we cannot comment on that but the breakfast was good. There are a couple of supermarkets and liquor stores about 5 minutes away, where you can pick up everything you might need for your trip. However you can always find places to stop off for a drink and something to eat, wherever you are going. I would still advise getting some water to keep in the car, more in case of breakdown than anything else. I used the pool, be warned it is unheated, like most pools in Namibia but nice and refreshing if it is a hot day. We also used the honesty bar, which was good value for money. The wifi is good, although you need to keep reactivating it with a new code every 2 hours.

We went into the centre of Windhoek by taxi on the Sunday when we got back to Galton. I don’t think there would be any benefit staying in the centre as the area where Galton is much quieter and is easily accessible to the main roads, whether you are travelling north or south. I would recommend Galton House as a stopping off place.
