Wonderful location

Just sorry not to have time to take advantage of the superb accommodation.

There was a problem in that it was almost impossible to stop the shower flooding the whole bathroom (and more!). It needs a "lip" to stop the shower overflowing into the bathroom.

Peaceful and comfortable

WE found Galton house quite easily, and it was a very pleasant place to rest after the long flight.

Friendly guesthouse in a convenient location

We already wrote a review for this place.

The review system showed this place twice as we stayed here in two separate overnight stops.

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.

Average hotel

Too far to walk to the center; rooms are very strange, more like a motel. Good breakfasts.

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.
