Friendly guesthouse in a convenient location
We stayed here 2 separate overnight stops at this guesthouse. The place was nice and located close to downtown area, though still in a lovely, quieter neighborhood. It was an easy drive to the restaurants we wanted to try. Staff was helpful to guide us toward those places and not pushing us to have dinner at the guesthouse, a gesture which we appreciated.
We would note that each room could be quite different. The first room we had was much smaller than the second one. The bathroom had a bit too smaller space to put toiletries for our liking, but it was just an overnight stop. Good wifi access.
Great place to spend the first night
Having arrived after a long flight this was a welcoming place to stay.
Very helpful staff on desk, directed us around Windhoek and booked dinner for us (despite offering dinner at the guest house they were happy to help us go elsewhere). Room very pleasant, cake very nice in afternoon.
Too far to walk to the center; rooms are very strange, more like a motel. Good breakfasts.Read more about the whole trip

Peaceful stay at Galton House
Very quiet location on the edge of Windhoek. Supermarket nearby. Too far to walk into the centre.
Lovely clean accommodation.
Very private terrace with small pool.
Dinner 3 courses at a very reasonable price.
An excellent place to stay at the start or end of a trip.
Friendly and comfortable Guesthouse
Very comfortable and convenient guesthouse with good secure parking. Friendly efficient service delivered two cold beers within minutes of our arrival.
Good food - we enjoyed the smell of the squash soup cooking during the afternoon and it tasted as good as it smelled.
Lovely room, good service, good food
Location a bit far from the centre but close enough to the bush to get interesting birds and wildlife.
All other things being equal, somewhere within walking distance of the centre, museums etc would be preferable.
Galton House review
This was our stop-off on our route out of Namibia - this time we knew our way in to Windhoek, we felt more familiar with our situation, our room was a little larger and besides sorting out our slightly oryx dented car (see previous comments) it all felt easier.
Our previous comments about possibly preferring to be in a downtown location hold good, though this is no reflection on Galton House or its staff.
Galton House good alternative
We were accommodated here because the Elegant Guest House had got into a muddle with our booking. The guest house is very comfortable and clean but the rooms are fairly basic. The outside space is a great place to relax with a swimming pool and this is very much a plus. The breakfast was good.
It is on the edge of Windhoek, a bit far out and therefore a taxi is needed or you need to drive into Windhoek. It is convenient for travelling out to the north.
This is a very well managed guest house which is obviously very popular with visitors. Situated in a residential area with private (gated) parking. Pool area.
Staff very helpful with restaurant suggestions and taxi service. We needed an early breakfast which they provided outside of their usual time. Free Wi-fi. Close to supermarket and petrol station. Highly recommended.
