We stayed here at the start and end of out trip to Namibia and it was a great place to orient ourselves. Although it is a city hotel and doesn't have the stunning views of some of the lodges in Namibia, the location was quiet and felt safe. Rooms were spacious and clean with good showers. We enjoyed the nighttime...

Warm welcome, beautiful modern decor, friendly service. We staid only for one night and wish we had had more time to relax on the patio by the small pool area of this small but well designed hotel. It is slightly outside of the town centre, but with secure parking, easy access from the airport and the smart houses nearby, it...

This place is a truly great hotel in Windhoek where you can feel safe and enjoy the spacious, modern and clean rooms. Staff is nice and helpful, the breakfast is tasty and dinner is excellent. We will definitely stay here again once we're back in Windhoek.

This is a perfect place from which to visit Windhoek. The food was delicious, the rooms were amazing. So comfortable. We had a lovely afternoon by the pool and were brought delicious cake and tea. Short drive from the airport. Highly recommend.

A house converted into a small boutique type hotel with some success. A good pool and amenity areas combined with good food and service made this a place to revisit. Rooms are all different with good air conditioning. A range of coffee tables books illustrating the delights of Namibia were appreciated before and after our visit

My wife and I stayed 1 night here as part of a holiday to Namibia. It is a small B&B with about 6 rooms. Our room of the central courtyard was clean, spacious, nice bed, quiet, safe, TV and ensuite shower. Helpful staff. Securely parking all you could want breakfast.

Depending on what direction you come from (travelling by car from the North - really convenient and short drive from the turn off - or the airport - quite a drive) this hotel can be convenient or not. It's in the nice suburb of Eros. We didn't feel confident walking in the neighbourhood with huge fences with either razor wire...

We had stayed at Galton House at the start of a previous trip to Namibia. This time was also the start of our holiday. It's not far from the airport and a short taxi ride to local restaurants.
