Comfortable stay at Galton House

Friendly welcome from Helen. Shown to the elegantly decorated room 5, which suffers a little from a rather small bathroom. We enjoyed a couple of beers by the pool.

Helen arranged a taxi to take us to the excellent Joe's Beerhouse (thoroughly recommended). Good breakfast.

No problem for Helen to give us directions to find the route south out of Windhoek.

Comfortable place for a night in Windhoek

This is a smart house to stay at before flying out of Windhoek in a quiet residential area. The meals are effectively served in an open plan kitchen/dining area. Breakfast was fine but we didn't feel there was any atmosphere so ate out in Windhoek, at the well known Joes Beerhouse.

The room was quite small but well appointed and very comfortable.

The manager, Eddie, was very attentive and runs the place well.

Galton House was a good Windhoek choice

We spent our first night in Namibia here. following a long journey.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a very spacious room by the pool and a very pleasant meal in the evening. Overall we were very pleased.

Excellent but rooms variable

We stayed at Galton House for one night on our way north and one night on the way back. Each time Helen and all the kitchen staff were delightful.

The furnishing was most attractive - modern and clean-looking, and breakfast and dinner were good.

The first time we had a large room with a large bathroom, so we were disappointed on our return to have Room 5, a small room with a poky bathroom, and the bathroom door didn’t close properly.

Galton House review

Easy to find and a good stopover for our first night in Namibia. Helpful staff, good food. We ate in the guest house.

If you wanted to eat in Windhoek, you would need to take a taxi, as it was on the outskirts of the town.

Galton House review

Quiet with a luxury radiation.

Positive:
Very clean tastefully executed room with a spacious bathroom, At the wall beautiful (black and white) pictures of wild animals. The whole B&B gave me a quiet luxury feeling, even around the swimming pool.

The food (breakfast, lunch and diner) is simple but very tastful.

The staff is warm and very helpful, spacially the manager.
It was a pleasure to be there.

Negative:
It took the ordered taxi for visiting Windhoek more then 1 1/2 hours to arrive. Almost to late to go. But I went and found Windhoek not interesting and dull.

The next morning, waiting for the pickup to the airport, it turned out that my flight was not in the morning but in the afternoon. Because of that I was arriving late insted of early on my next destination.
