I specifically booked the place because they offered breakfast, but in the morning I was told the breakfast person was not around, left around 8am still no show. I was not happy...Had to go spend money at Wimpy for breakfast..

We stayed two nights, we had two rooms. The price was perfect, the rooms comfortable despite the basic attire, it was clean and the breakfast was satisfying. There is a good parking space. The hosts are friendly and efficient, the service is good. Just a few minutes walk from the Main Mall, where we did some local shopping and my...

I always want a hotel where I can walk to the city center, in this case called "The Mall". We were given a room which was spacious enough for the both of us, nothing fancy but adequate. We slept well, the city is quiet once it gets dark outside, so no major noise from traffic or nightclubs. Breakfast is included...

We came in after dark by bus and this was the closest place we could find on short notice.The place is kinda old but the location is amazing. Right by a mall where you can find anything and within walking distance of major places. The kitchen had no food so we went to sleep hungry so don't bet on the...

We spent two nights in a twin room (though we had reserved a double) in the main lodge and found it adequate but certainly nothing special. Some of the staff were friendly, others surly, but all were pretty clueless. The location is indeed perfect, within walking distance or a short, cheap cab ride of most anywhere you might want to...

We stayed 3 nights here - one night in the Main Lodge (594 Pula) and 2 nights in the Extension nearby. The Main Lodge is nice but more expensive - personally we felt the Extension was better as you can use the kitchen facilities and it was a lot cheaper (393 Pula). Wifi is only in the reception area of...

If u doing things on the cheap this place is fine. There is free wifi, aircon the rooms are clean but could do with a make over. However for the price it is fair. Breakfast was again pretty ordinary but ok.

I adise travellers to use the main lodge. Rooms are nice and air conditioned. Do not op for the guest house accross the street, beds in their rooms are not so good. The facility is located close to a shopping mall and travellers can buy Batswana souvenirs!

We are two students travelling from the UK in order to carry out research at the University of Botswana. We were located in a house in extension 10 for the majority of the trip and spent our first and last nights at the main lodge. Price - for the price and our needs we could not have expected much more,...

As others have mentioned we too were actually housed in a remote house not on the hotel property. We had a group of 11 so this made sense for us as it allowed us to stay together and it gave us the flexibility to make some of our own meals and it had wifi. These were definite positives. Coming from...

“Book ahead - they get busy because of their great location and budget price. We didnt book ahead and there was a Conference on, thats why we got the last and most expensive room available in the Main Lodge.”

“Doubles have either a double bed or two singles; alone, I would recommend asking for a double with the one bed, then you'll be comfortable and have more floor space.”
