Back to the real world

Although this is a very modern and clean little hotel, we were disappointed that the room we had was very gloomy with small windows high up with a "view" of no more than an electric fence on top of a wall - this is more of a design flaw than the fault of the staff or management.

It is possible we were unlucky with our room. Food was served in a small dining room and was to a good standard. Staff were friendly but we did not see much of them!

Galton House

We stayed here the last night in Namibia. Easy to find on the map , very welcoming. Lovely room. Our insurance did not allow us to drive after sunset so we were pleased that Galton House offered us a meal in the evening. I think this is very important- we had driven all day and did not want to go out again.

If I had the choice, I would want to stay here at the beginning as well or at least somewhere which offered an evening meal.

Unfortunately I did not find the swimming pool until we were about to leave - my fault!

Good transit place

We stayed here at the end of our trip before flying home the following morning. This small hotel was located in a quiet area on the outskirts of Windhoek and had a pool. Good for wiling away a few hours.

Friendly staff and nice public rooms and probably the best food we had in Namibia.

Galton House-Excellent Service

We so appreciated the great service we received on arrival. We can't remember the young man's name who checked us in unfortunately. He helped us find a money exchange and directed us to a gas station where we could fill up before returning the car to the airport.

We found it easy to find following the map as we approached from the south.It was also easy to get to the airport.

It was a very relaxing spot.

Galton House review

Very pleasant place to spend the first night. Greeted by helpful and accommodating reception staff who quickly re-arranged accommodation to our previously requested twin room reservation.

Gilt was taken off this B&B by the need for some minor maintenance e.g bathroom fittings starting to show signs of wear and tear.

Galton House

Galton House was clean and safe. The common rooms were airy with lots of light and nicely decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The breakfast was nice as we a had a choice of more than just eggs.

Galton House review

This is a lovely guest house with helpful staff. We arrived in the evening for a one-night stay and they went out of their way to provide a good dinner and take care of our laundry. That said, the meal was expensive by Namibian standards.

Galton House review

A very good first stop for one night. We were going into Windhoek for a meal but felt tired after the flight so had dinner at Galton House.

We were pleased we did as the meal was excellent and very reasonable.
