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. We had contacted Galton before our trip as we hoped to have dinner there. We were told this was not possible due...

Clean and comfortable but too remote. I did not fancy there dinner menu and as an older lady travelling alone did not want to get a taxi into town to eat on my own. The breakfast looked "tired" and uninteresting and the staff unhelpful.

We loved Galton House. The staff were friendly, the food great and the accommodations perfect. Not a big impersonal hotel but with more space than a bed and breakfast, with lots of room to sit and relax in comfort outside of the rooms. A nice pool, well maintained gardens, little gift shop.

This guest house offered great customer service and support. The rooms were comfy and the shower was just what we needed after a long flight from London and the second time after six days on the road in Southern Namibia.

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...
