Galton House review

Our overriding memory was that it was cold and draughty. However, the room was fine. Functional but all the facilities we needed, including air-conditioning which we used to warm up the room.

Being miles away from any restaurants, we had our evening meal at the B&B. Much was promised, but it was over-rated and over-priced. The vegetarian option was good, but the only alternative, meat option, was disappointing.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nevertheless, we wouldn't go back there. Not a patch on Olive Exclusive.

Galton House - great first night stop

Perfect for first night stop. Out in a suburb, so not a very inspiring location. However, rooms were very clean and spacious (kids loved the free fudge too), with nice touches of hot water bottles at night.

Staff very friendly - especially the very lovely and helpful manager, although restaurant staff bit chaotic.

Exactly what we needed though to recover from a long flight before setting off on our adventures the next day.

Excellent starting point

Galton House was the perfect recovery stop over after our flights. Excellent room and meal.

Its location is just outside the main city area, but that was not a problem as all we wanted to do was relax by the pool, have a decent meal and a good sleep.

Galton House provided all these things.

Ideal place to stay after a long flight

We stayed at Galton House on our first night in Namibia - an ideal distance from Windhoek Airport. In a quiet residential area so we were at ease as soon as we arrived.

Our standard room was situated in a little courtyard, which was planted out with amazing architectural cacti. Apart from the glass in our door, the only other light coming into the room was from a larger window but this was too high up on the wall to see out - but it did at least give us privacy. Very modern bathroom with a great overhead shower. TV, safe, filtered water in a jug, kettle with tea and coffee, hairdryer and face flannels made our short stay very comfortable.

The only negative comment to make was the 2 glasses of house wine we ordered with our evening meal were minimal to say the least.

Galton house was a comfortable first stop.

A short drive from the airport.

Ok for a one night stopover.

comfortable overnight stay

Perfectly comfortable for an over night stay in Windhoek. Good bathroom, clean, comfortable beds.

We went out to eat at Joes Cafe and Jacks. Both good.
