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.

A good place to stay in Windhoek

Very warm welcome and comfortable accommodation. We didn't go out, so not able to comment on the location.

They were happy to open up the kitchen and make a meal for us even though we were the only diners.

Galton would be proud

Great service, beautiful space, great breakfast, cool attitude & interior design.

My only issue was that it was not walking distance to town like the Hilltop House.

Very comfortable after a long flight

We were welcomed by the team from Galton House and, after sorting out the car hire, we got some rest and then had dinner in the city.

The breakfast was very nice in the morning and we were the only guests, which made for a very nice and private morning meal!

Galton House review

We were in transit & did not spend long here, but the accommodation was good.

The room (& bathroom) was perfectly nice, clean & with good amenities.

Food was average, but useful that they do serve dinner.
