"Galton House review"

1 night Arrived 3 Jun 2016
"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." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"A good place to stay in Windhoek"

1 night Arrived 28 May 2016
"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." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"Very comfortable after a long flight"

1 night Arrived 21 Nov 2015
"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!" See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Wonderful location"

1 night Arrived 13 Sep 2015
"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." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 4n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe
