Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Upon arrival we were welcomed like family. The public area is stunning & the rooms lack nothing in comfort & style. This is really still one place where the guest is King & every effort is made to make you feel special.

Spent a night at the guest house in May before safari. Clean comfortable rooms, good food and wonderful staff. Light and airy public areas and quiet private swimming pool. Highly recommended

Firstly not only is Galton House fabulous in every way but the welcome that we got from you and all of your staff was unbelievable. The friendly, sociable ambiance that you have created is so unique and special and your attention to detail is superb, all of which was commented on by each and everyone in our group. Thank you so much for arranging to transport all of us to Joe’s Beer Garden where we experienced a most enjoyable evening. And, for me, I have a new benchmark for the best omelette, a la Galton House, that I have ever had!

Great service, great breakfast and a really nice place to stay. Would recommend to anyone over a hotel. This was probably the best value accommodation in Namibia and it was a great start to our holiday.

Very nicely appointed and well decorated guest house. Host went out of his way to make us comfortable. We were working and it was like working in own home.
We had dinner too, which although rather pricey, was delicious and saved us having to go out.
Not in the center of Windhoek, but not far from the centre.
Recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms facing into the courtyard are quieter.
