About Galton House
Galton House is Windhoek's newest accommodation, named after the famous explorer Sir Francis Galton. The guest house has a relaxed but efficient style which creates a very welcoming atmosphere. Impressive wildlife photography adorns the walls whilst the rest of the interior is a combination of modern minimalistic and understated chic.
A mere 10-minute drive from the centre of town and perched on the edge of Windhoek's northernmost affluent suburb of Eros, guests staying here will be ensured of peace and tranquillity. There is Wi-Fi throughout the property and the eight guest rooms all have wired Internet connectivity and satellite TVs. There is a tea and coffee station available in the reception area and these can also be provided in the rooms on request.
The communal areas consist of a large lounge, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a swimming pool, an early arrival/late departure day room including a toilet, shower, changing and re-packing facility as well as understated garden areas. There is also a delightful alfresco dining area by the pool where freshly prepared and very tasty meals are served, including lunch and dinner. A number of shops, restaurants and supermarkets are within easy distance.
Inspired by tour operators and run by industry experts, Galton House is a unique and a new way of looking at accommodation for guests in Windhoek.
