Great job Marang!
The staff were very courteous, friendly, helpful and committed to making our stay comfortable and meet out expectations. I received calls to check on our stay during the stay. The cleaning lady that attended to our room was very polite and helpful too. I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the suite and we felt safe that all the COVID 19 restriction were adhered to.

Do not book, no operation
I booked this hotel, but it is not operating. They arranged another Cresta in Francistown which is cheaper than this hotel. Not yet replied how to compensate the difference.

8/10 Very good

Probably the best hotel in town. Room was in general good condition and felt clean. Locationwise it helps to have a car otherwise taxi might be required but it is only a short ride into town. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A very good experience.
