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.

The decor and furnishings are modern and tasteful. There is a lovely little pool area, although we did not have enought time to use it. The front desk booked us a... More

I stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed the feel of the place with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The atmosphere is relaxed with airy and clean rooms. Although a set menu each night the dinners were really good and are worth the extra cost.
