Pleasant hotel set in attractive gardens with a large swimming pool. Stayed in a round cottage. Clean comfortable and quiet. Staff helpful and pleasant. Very good breakfast selection. Much nicer than its sister hotel in Francistown.

We stayed in one of the raised rooms overlooking the gardens - which had a great view out over the lush lawns (something certainly very rare while I have been travelling around Botswana). The bathrooms look like they have recently been redone, and they are great. Maybe a little...

I really liked my tree house (chalet). This place is serene and ideal for wedding. The rooms are crystal clean. Most of the staff are so friendly. I spent 3 good years in this city during my high school years and never got to visit this place.
