Galton House is tasteful Africa. Africa grown up: clean, open spaces which are comfortable and cool - the perfect stop-over in Windhoek.
Tucked away in a quiet suburb of Windhoek, Galton House is a sanctuary of quiet, cool comfort – out of the heat and dust of Namibia. What the 9 en-suite rooms are known for most is their size – this may be because of the minimalist nature of the interior decorating, but it is appreciated, especially if you need to re-pack bags before heading out into the wilderness for a few days.
The lounge area is a great place to relax with comfortable furniture and where friendly staff are always on-hand to bring you a relaxing cup of tea or afternoon refreshment. The pool is certainly heaven-sent after days on the road exploring this breath-taking but very hot country.
Breakfast is served every morning, a continental-style buffet with made to order eggs which will get you off to a good start. Galton House offers guests a 3-course dinner but you can also travel the short distance into the city to sample some of what the local restaurants have to offer.
The manageress, Marian Keyter, has many years of experience in the hospitality industry and understands what good service is about and the affect that attention to detail can have on a guest – from a turn-down service with hot water bottles in the winter, to holding bags for returning guests – Galton house is the perfect stop-over in Windhoek.
