Galton House

Our last night in Namibia !

We found the rooms a bit bare , very modern. The outside seating overlooked the parking area which we also found a bit stark - no plants or flowers to make it more welcoming.

We were not shown the pool, probably because it was raining. We had to leave early the next morning. We assumed the pool would be closed due to the water issues but perhaps not as per Mr B's review from 1st April ?
As it was a Sunday night we did not want to have to go out for dinner so we ate in - perfectly nice food - just not much of it !

All in all - a slightly disappointing stay given that Galton house has a higher rating that Sonneneck (where we stayed on the first night).

Galton House review

Perfect start to the trip. The rooms were modern and extremely comfortable, the pool was lovely and the staff could not have been more helpful. We did not have dinner but we had a delicious light lunch and a lovely breakfast.

Great little place in Windhoek!

We had a great one night stay in Windhoek after a very long trip to Namibia. Helen was an excellent host and made us reservations at Joe's Beerhouse along with a taxi to take us to and from. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with a straight-forward, yet tasty breakfast the next morning to start our trip.

Galton House

Quiet residential and scenic area of Windhoek.

Perfect for us being in transit from our photography tour to our private northern Namibia tour since we only needed a one night stay.

However, if someone wanted to be nearer to downtown activities, it's too far away, a 10-15 minute drive.

overnight stay on arrival in Windhoek

Galton House is a clean and compact hotel ideal for an overnight stay on arrival or before flying out of Windhoek.

The welcome was warm, and the food was pleasant. The bread at breakfast was fabulous.

Lovely guest house & very helpful staff

Because of issues with missing driving licences & car hire we stayed 2 rather than one night at Galton House. The guest house is beautifully appointed - spacious rooms, indoor seating area, dining room, honesty bar/tea & coffee facilities, pool & outside seating. Breakfast was good and we had a very nice meal on the first evening - we also appreciated the complimentary tea & cake offered mid afternoon.

But the really outstanding feature was the help and encouragement we received from Helen and her staff at the point where it looked as though our whole trip might fall apart because of the car hire problem.

They kept us feeling positive, gave us access to their computer and printer, fielded calls from Expert Africa and Bidvest, suggested contacting the British Consulate, collected faxes, advised on contacting the Namibian police and organised taxis to the police station and later for us to eat out. They could not have done more for us.

We hope one day to go back and enjoy the guest house and see Windhoek properly - without the distraction of travel problems.

Galton House review

We had some difficulty finding Galton House - more detailed instruction would have been useful!

A very nicely designed, relaxed place- but our room ( No 6 ) was very small and noisy. (A generator all night next door- and power showers at 6am in next room!)

Super swimming pool for a small place- much appreciated.

Very helpful manager. Nice sitting-around area...

Good for one night.

Stylish guest house in the capital

Very stylish and comfortable boutique guest house.

Lovely ensuite rooms, refreshing pool, delicious locally sourced food, including a freshly-baked cake for afternoon tea.....& a good packed breakfast (ready at 4.30a.m) for our very early departure to the airport

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.
