My first time in Botswana for business. Very friendly service, everyone is always willing to help. Not once did I ask anyone to help me that they looked like it was to much for them. The rooms are always clean and after a hard days work in the sun the aircon is a plus. The convenience of having breakfast at...

I arrived on a Friday afternoon tired from a long bus journey. Check in was quick and I was glad to see a large, clean, well appointed room with a comfortable bed. The service was quick and pleasant and I slept very well overnight. A little over-priced without the inclusion of breakfast, but overall a good stay.

Did the job as a one night stop over coming and going from the Delta. The rooms are good sized and clean. The prices seem a bit high for just an overnight stop. There is secure parking and a decent restaurant attached for dinner and breakfast.

The place is good and clean, the surrounding area is very bad, they fix cars outside and it can get noisy in the morning. The shopping complex opposite the mall the yard cleaning ladies wake up early and make noise as well. The place is good we will stop again on our way to Bulawayo.

Hotel is pleasant with spacious rooms. Upstairs restaurant could do with a staff wake up. Went there for lunch and dinner and both times had mediocre to bad service.... Maybe it was because I was alone.

Be careful of cars parked in 'secure parking area'. Within 30 mins of our arrival, a 'visitor' with the security guard promptly took our gas bottle of our trailer after trying to unsuccessfully get into the trailer and walked off with it. However, overall a good stopover to the Delta

Room nice and big, really nice firm bed, very nice bathroom with separate shower and toilet. Secure parking, pleasant ambience with a lot of history. Meals were wel prepared and tasty. Although not served on the premises, the restaurants are very close by, basically in the same building/mall. Value for money

When we stopped outside the building I was a bit concerned, but was pleasantly surprised when I entered this hotel. We were quite a large group and the service at reception was good and spot on. Our room was huge with a lovely bathroom. DSTV, free wifi and secure parking.
