A nice place – fairly modern, nice rooms, comfortable bed, nice 32’ LCD TV, good closet space, decent shower etc. Was booked here for a conference, not sure how this compares with other hotels in Gaborone for the $100/night price range. Internet was an issue though. The hotel seems to have a shared wifi connection, so the more people use... More

We went to Botswana over the weekend for their annual toy run which was held in Gaborone. When we first got into Gaborone which was also my first visit to Botswana I didn't think a lot of the place, but was I wrong! We pulled into Cresta lodge....... Immediately staff were helping 30 Harley Davidsons to park by moving road... More

What a great weekend with the staff of the Cresta Lodge going out their way to entertain, service and pamper the entire group. The food was great, the beers cold and nothing was too much for the Hotel to look after a group of 27 demanding guests. Very friendly staff, well amintained rooms and sufficient ameneties. We really enjoyed our... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, ok food, good wine choice. But others have alluded to the bad wifi. It's a deal breaker these days if you're an international traveller and you need to work. The wi-fi connection is poor, to at times non-existent. This is not a Gaborone problem - I worked round the corner at the Sanitas Garden Centre... More

It is such a pity that a place with relatively good facilities, fails completely when it comes to service! For the last 2 years I've been staying here on and off and the service has gotten progressively worse. When you report a problem, there is no assistance. No recommendations or even a decent apology. I arrived to no working phone... More

Hotel is basic with nice rooms. Clean and not badly maintained. Gym equipment needs servicing ang espresso machine was out of order in Chatters. Staff are very helpful and eager to please. Prices are reasonable for Gaborone. Better than Gabs Sun by a mile

The hotel seems overpriced but maybe this is the local market, however please note that the room rate does NOT include breakfast which is charged at USD 18 per person. By way of comparison the all you can eat meat buffet at the Brazilian Rodizio is the same price! I did not bother trying the food at dinner and just... More

Stayed here for nearly 2 weeks for a conference, and found it to be clean and pleasant. My only complaints would be (1) that the wifi only worked in the bathroom of my room, but others in our party did not have that problem so it may just have been because I was in one of the less central rooms,...

So, stayed here recently during a work trip, on the recommendation of a colleague. Cresta Lodge is a large hotel, just outside town next to one of the new highways encircling Gaborone. It's a pleasant place, oriented towards business types, with large, clean rooms, and decent (though pricey) breakfast (at 11USD). Bar area (which also does meals) is a good... More
