We stayed at the Galton House one night before returning home from an amazing trip around northern Namibia. We were assigned room 1 which seemed to have been recently painted - the smell of paint in the room gave us headaches when waking up the following morning. We arrived in time for the world cup football, however, the staff was not able to get the right channels assigned on the TV in the room until 30 min into the game. Also, there was no room for us at dinner so we were told that we could go out for dinner at Joe's Beergarden. No reservation needed according to the staff. When arriving at the restaurant first thing they asked was whether we had reserved a table - friday night was full. Not great when you arrive with two kids. The bed was good for my 204 cm, however, it was unacceptable that dinner could not be arranged at this isolated guest house and the paint smell in the room was a minus. The guest house seems to have opened before all facilities were ready - the gate was being installed when we arrived and no other stop was put up so there was straight access from the street to the rooms. That was at least what we found leaving early for the airport.
