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 for 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 located in 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 cooked to order or continental buffet. We didn’t eat at the Galton in the evening so we cannot comment on that. 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 code.

We did go into the centre of Windhoek by taxi on the Sunday when we got back to Galton. I don’t think there would be any befit 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.

Perfect place to overnight on the start and finish of the trip. Lovely staff.

After the trip David said it was like an oasis in the desert!

A lovely welcome to Namibia

A lovely welcome.

Although not near the centre of town it was convenient for both airports. The room was very good, with the pool outside, although the air-conditioning unit over the bed dripped and at one point dropped ice on us!

A very comfortable guest house and dinner

Easy to find, and in a very peaceful suburb.

We were made very welcome with a comfortable and quiet room at the rear. We had dinner here which was excellent, with complimentary sparkling wine to celebrate our Golden Wedding - a much appreciated touch.

We would recommend this accommodation.

A ways out of town, but very nice. Food was good, but not great.

Staff was excellent.
