We had a studio facing towards the lake with a small kitchenette and a little patio outside where you could watch activity on the lake. We arrived quite early but our room was ready and we were provided with milk, a map of the town and the code for the free wi-fi.
Even though there was a road between us and the lake, it was very quiet and the room was comfortable, if a little small. I found myself wishing I'd booked an apartment. There is free parking onsite although it's a little tight in places. Luckily, we got a space near the entrance which was very easy to get in and out of.
The town itself has some great shopping, especially if you like outdoor wear, and a wide range of bars and restaurants. Although I'd set my heart on eating at the Botswana Butchery, we found ourselves in a pub on the opposite side of town on their steak night with two great meals for very little - a real bonus!
