We stayed at Galton House for one night on our way north and one night on the way back. Each time Helen and all the kitchen staff were delightful. The furnishing was most attractive - modern and clean-looking, and breakfast and dinner were good. The first time we had a large room with a large bathroom, so we were disappointed...

On our way to our next destination in Namibia, as a family we spent 1 night at Galton Guest House. It was a wonderful first stop on our holiday. It was clean, neat, and we all felt refreshed. The manager Helen and the lovely staff there went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The location is great...

Spent a night here en route to Safari in Namibia. It was ideal. Clean and comfortable, 14 private suites, with a community room, dining room, and an in-ground pool. All very secure. Would happily stay there again! They served a wonderful supper and a great breakfast.

Galton House was a lovely respite between the legs of trips with Wild Dog Safaris. On our first visit, Arabella took wonderful care of us; laundry, arranging a car for us to visit a safe ATM and going so far as to lend my friend a pillow for our next leg for one night of camping. Both the dinner and...

We stayed at Galton House for 2 nights at the start of our recent holiday in Namibia. It was everything you want from a small (boutique?) hotel: friendly helpful staff, stylish rooms, beautiful common area with sofas and books where you can chill before dinner, cool outside area with a lovely pool, delicious food. It is a short drive from...

I found in the Galton House a very comfortable accommodation in a quiet area. Helpful and friendly staff made my stay to be be rememenbered as a very pleasant experience. The food is good - so no dinner trips to the City are necessary - the considerable distance from the Center is therefore no big disadvantage.

Pleasant quiet stop over when we arrived in Windhoek. Spent a relaxing afternoon by the small pool enjoying the sun. Room was clean and comfortable and staff were very friendly. Staff are happy to suggest places to eat and arrange taxi. Onsite secure parking and staff helpful

After 2 flights to get to Namibia from the UK Galton House was an oasis of peace and calm. The staff couldn't do enough to help, advising us on where to eat, as we wanted to go out rather than eat there (the menu did look very good though) and ordering a taxi for our return trip. Our room, facing...
