The moment i stepped in the hotel premises, it felt like entering into another world. Cresta is located in a Beautiful place outside the city where there is minimum noise of all the traffic and other city noises, perfect to relax. Their slogan, 'where one smile starts another' is well initiated, I was welcomed by a smile, I felt at home and the hotel reception did not waste my time as I was checking in and immediately I was taken to my room. The hotel provides business center, with excellent internet connectivity apart from the all hotel wifi. The hotel is well planned, it has enough room and once again friendly stuff from front office to the housekeepers, waiters and chefs. The hotel's Chatters restaurant is outstanding as well as their meals, well ventilated, good for families. In overall, Cresta Lodge met my expectations, it is worthy for the high price tag and I would definitely go back.

We arrived in the evening for an overnight stay with another couple. The hotel facilities and staff were very good. We chose to eat at the hotel restaurant and of us were disappointed with our choice of stir fried noodles. It was really a spaghetti dish and not a good one at that. The hamburger by the fourth member was good. We needed to catch the 6.30 am shuttle to the airport and so missed breakfast as it commenced at 6.30 am. I would return to this hotel.

I have experienced best customer service at Cresta Gaborone, All facilities from Gate, Parking, Reception, rooms, bar, kitchen, rooms, Swimming pool, gave a beautiful life to me. I was welcomed by a smile from my car by staff, I found my room very clean and conducive for relaxing. I was on work trip, but to be precise I was attending classes for my Networking course at Botswana Accountancy College. I needed enough rest and I got it, had room service for my entire 4 nights. There is abundant parking space and security for our valuables and us is top class, food is delicious, even on Friday there is relaxing happy hour session, with good service by waiters while a DJ is playing nice music. I really wish all hotels in other Botswana parts, where there is no cresta copy from Cresta, because I enjoyed the same nice experience about cresta in Palapye, Maun and Francistown. There is also shuttle that make life convenient when arriving and departing, There is free wifi, there is internet café, when one want to do full office work, where u want to several paper work, or when u don't have a laptop. I enjoyed this facility big time when I was preparing for interview of the current post I am holding at work. It was on 2012, my interview was at 1700 hours, so the whole day I spent in the internet café, I goggled every information I needed, and guess what I passed interview more than all my competitors, hence got the post. I attend classes every third week of the month, I am confident I will be certified with the might CISCO because I go to class lively due to waking up at cresta. I have cresta card to accumulate points, this is a sign that cresta retain our expenses to us.

We traveled to Gaborone on business end of July 2019 and stayed at the Cresta Lodge. The front office staff are friendly and professional. The breakfast variety was quite good with a majority of the restaurant staff being very professional (only an incident of one male staff who got the order from my colleague wrong and insisted on debating about it despite those of us from the group trying to correct him. Eventually we got someone else to bring what my colleague had ordered for). They worked out a fairly good rate for us given our fixed budget. They have a pool which sadly we could not use since it was quite cold in Gaborone. The hotel is located next to a shopping centre where you can acquire a simcard and access a supermarket. It was safe and tranquil. I will definitely stay here when I go back.
