In transit across Botswana, we booked at Bel Rea Guest House in Nata. We paid in advance for the booking but, when we arrived, they said they had no room. They moved us to Northgate Lodge. Northgate Lodge is INFINITELY better than Bel Rea. It has wifi (Bel Rea said it did, but doesn't). It has a garden (Bel Rea...

We booked through Safari Now and when we checked in, we were asked to pay almost double as we were quoted by Safari Now. We refused to do so and after having a quite impolite telephone call from the agent, the argument was settled. We checked in in a " executive room" . What a shame. The room looks like...

We stayed there 1 night as a final stop from a one week safari in northern Botswana. The room was ok but a little bit gloomy. The worst thing about this place is the staff really not motivated. The food at the restaurant was ok but there is a huge lack of choice. Could be much better

1st impressions was not too bad but that is it. Swimming pool dirty. Room hot. Aircon does not work properly. Taps in bathroom is incorrectly marked. Basin plug is missing. Shower was a mission to complete. Dinner was not acceptable. It took an hour to cook 2 steaks. Staff were friendly but not trained very well. Avoid if possible

I have stayed at Northgate Lodge several times in the past 4 years. My first couple of visits where amazing, conveintly located, great service, superb food, clean rooms and well maintained grounds. Recently the lodge has been on a steady decline. The staff seem unhappy and uninterested in their jobs, the rooms and furniture look old, the pool was really...

A disappointing experience which left a bad taste. Staff look very unhappy. Cannot really help with queries. Rooms clean, but on our return we stayed in the...

We had an unplanned one night stay at Northgate Lodge. It is very good for this type of accommodation and price. It is not a game lodge or a theme type hotel. It is essentially a very nice motel with pool, meals and big clean rooms. Hot meals were cooked individually so there was a wait. Staff were helpful. The...
