I recently stayed at the Cresta Lodge for four days while at a conference in Gaborone. The rooms were fine and comfortable and the staff were nice. It is a quiet place to stay at, there are no loud bars so a good choice in that sense. This does also mean that after about 10 at night things are pretty... More

The rooms are spacious and well ventilated making them cool. The rooms were also very clean. The staff very receptive and willing to assist all the time. Customers are even asked rooms they prefer, ie whether one wants to stay on the ground floor or upstairs.

Hotel has comfortable rooms with warm air con in which was nice since it was cool weather outside. Clean room with basic facilities. Toilet was bit small. Breakfast buffet was good, but bit cold in the morning since there seems no heating. Felt bit chilly in the lobby and restaurant.

This is one of the oldest standing hotels in town but very well maintained. The ambiance in the hotel lobby and restaurant is up to modern standards. The rooms were very comfortable, ours had a sleeper couch so my wife and I could crash in with our little ones. Room service took a bit longer than anticipated and the food,... More

Good sized rooms with good bedding and excellent air conditioning. The bathroom is nice but needs a good clean, perhaps an update to remove the old grout. The pool is good and clean to swim in. We didn't eat at the hotel as there is plenty of restaurants around. Easy access for a car and good safe car parking available.

Stayed for five days while on business in Gaborone, decent but not excellent. Leak in the sewer system caused some smell in the corridor where I was staying. Most of the staff was really friendly and service minded. Pool was not so clean, so never went in, however the gym was ok. Rooms comfortable, but a little wore down.
