Excellent and cosy with very friendly staff, very nice rooms and a great breakfast. Situated in a quiet and calm part of the city, in the northeast, but it is not too far away in to the center of the city.

Our family of 6 stayed at Galton Guest House in Windhoek in August 2012 and loved it. We weren't expecting that much since we had only booked it a few days before our trip during high season, and so we were most pleasantly surprised when we got there after a long drive from Johannesburg. Our rooms were nice and spacious,... More

We ate dinner, but as the only guests it did feel a bit like we were in someone else's house as the dining area is open plan to the kitchen. Food was fine, although they could work on... More

We stayed the night we arrived in Windhoek with my kids 8&5 years old and the family room was very clean, in order and new. The services in the front office and in the kitchen were really good. The next day we went to Sossusvlei and in our return we stayed in another house and the other one was terrible.... More

We stayed at Galton House at both ends of our Namibian road trip - and both times the accommodation was perfect for our needs. Room was spacious, pool area clean and welcoming and lounge area accommodating. It was nice to be able to enjoy an evening meal if you would like to - or simply a glass of wine on... More

the very sparse Rooms have no interior windows besides entrance door. Low beds, effectively on the floor, wifi codes work per hour and in lobby only, sad environment. Bedsheets were full of huge visible holes. nevertheless the staff was very friendly.

Stayed at Galton House on post and pre trip in the wilderness of Namibia. Rooms had all you could ask for on a short stay and the breakfast and dinners were excellent, with a good selection for non meat/game eaters. Wine was also very good with a wide range on offer. The social areas were comfortable and had a wide... More
