We had a really great room. Wooden house on stilts. Air conditioning and a comfortable bed was all I needed and that was exactly what we got. Complimentary coffee and tea in the room. Very clean and neat. Lovely decor too. The gardens are absolutely beautiful. Huge trees provides ample shade if you want to relax in the garden. There...

Affordable accommodation five minutes outside Francistown located on the banks of the Tati River. Boosts of 105 rooms all fully air-conditioned set in a picturesque surrounding with tall trees and two swimming pools. The hotel also has a campsite on the one side of the gardens. A full sumptous Ala Carte Menu or Buffet served in our Dining Room.

We stayed here and found the hotel to be clean and quiet. We had a good stay. But for $175 a night we did not feel like it was with anywhere near that much. The rooms are dated and basic. Staff very friendly and accommodating . Grounds are nice. Restaurant was just ok but relatively high prices.

The staff at reception are efficient and swift, and very friendly. Although a little difficult to find at first the place and the reception are both very neat and have a friendly atmosphere. We camped and had a mostly pleasant experience. The grounds were well kept, sand swept and grass mown. Lots of shade under which to park your vehicles...

Beautiful grounds next to the river and great food with friendly service. We came here for lunch a few times with family and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings - lovely to sit outside on the veranda and relax.

A great hideaway spot from the hustle and bustle of town. 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).
