"Galton House review"
The breakfast was good. The rooms are a bit small but the communal areas make up for the space." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Lovely place to stop over"
"Comfortable overnight in Windhoek"
We would recommend the Stellenbosch wine bar and bistro which is a 10 minute drive away - great food and wine in beautiful surroundings." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia
"Excellent stopover while in Windhoek "
The atmosphere is so relaxed, there is plenty of space to relax, eating in the open plan kitchen is cozy.
Lovely place." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana

"Quiet, clean and peaceful hotel"
The small pool was a nice place to cool down.
Breakfast good and staff were very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat here in the evening as we wanted to go to Joe's Beerhourse but the staff were happy to book a table for us there. Helen (I think this was her name) was very welcoming.
Our room here at the end of the holiday was beside the carpark but was convenient for loading the car up.
The hotel was easy to find and just a short drive from the city centre.
[Ed: This review is largely a repeat of a review below as these travellers stayed here twice: once at the start of their trip, and again at the end.]" See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia
We found the rooms a bit bare , very modern. The outside seating overlooked the parking area which we also found a bit stark - no plants or flowers to make it more welcoming.
We were not shown the pool, probably because it was raining. We had to leave early the next morning. We assumed the pool would be closed due to the water issues but perhaps not as per Mr B's review from 1st April ?
As it was a Sunday night we did not want to have to go out for dinner so we ate in - perfectly nice food - just not much of it !
All in all - a slightly disappointing stay given that Galton house has a higher rating that Sonneneck (where we stayed on the first night)." See all these reviews: 23n in Namibia
