Excellent place to stay outside the city

Posted 01-Sep-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: The swimming pool seemed to be in the shade - which in summer is great - but in winter very cold
Location: 20 mins from centre of Gabarone, easy to find off a main road, good views of the dam in the distance, Mokolodi Game reserve 2 min drive
Great place, wonderful rooms ours had an outside shower which was great (even in winter), staff extremely helpful and friendly, lots of inside and outside space for chilling, had an honesty bar and great coffee available at all times, good breakfast - highly recommend, walking distance to the Mokolodi nature reserve which has a great restaurant as well as being able to go on short game rides

Sehr schönes privates Haus, gute Lage.

Posted 20-May-2014 on Hotels
Im Rahmen unserer Botswanareise hatten wir am letzten Tag diese Unterkunft gebucht. Die Lage (Nähe Gabarone - Grenze Südafrika) ist ausgezeichnet, das Haus urgemütlich, der Empfang und der Service sehr nett und freundlich. Wir können es uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen und würden jederzeit wieder hier buchen.

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately I cannot understand it. I was hoping that by now Expedia would have translated it for us. We hope to host you on your next visit to Botswana

Perfect spot -needs to be more informative

Posted 08-Mar-2014 on Hotels
The guest house was very attractive and peaceful. However whilst the front person was helpful, training would be beneficial. Tackled us about dates and payment on arrival.We were not informed about use of kitchen.No meals served except breakfast (not sure how clear on website) No tonics in honesty bar. G&T are iconic to Africa! Absent owner would not talk with me about payment as I understand that Hotel.com was responsible. Yet you have not resolved this despite 4 e-mails.

A wonderful place

Posted 04-Feb-2014
Pros: Lizzie in particular and the whole experience of chilling out like never before.
Cons: Perhaps it would be better to go by car as the restaurant involved a walk at night through unfamiliar territory. Also, the restaurant closes on Monday
This is a beautiful place to stay. It's difficult to describe as it is unique. A large house with wonderful views and lovely spaces to relax.

An oasis close to Gaborone

Posted 26-Nov-2013
Beautifully set in rural environment, close to a national park this small hotel is something else. Five rooms, spacious sitting rooms for all to use, self service kitchen and “honesty bar”, pool, - and Lizzy, the ever so friendly and helpful boss makes this a perfect place to relax. We stayed for one week before going on the trip of our lives, a tented safari with &Beyond. Mokolodi House turned out to be the perfect preparation, and will be our obvious choice if we ever have the chance again.

top locatie, ook voor business

Posted 15-Nov-2013 on Hotels
ik kom her regelmatig voor business in Gaborone.Het is maar 10min buiten de stad maae je zit prachtig in de Afrikaanse bush en het huis is echt een prachtige soort lodge met alles er op en er aan. Keuken, BBQ, zwembad, huiskamer, Mooie kamers, schoon en ruim. Vrolijk en net personeel. Geen Airco, maar gewoon alles open, lekker windje en luisteren naar de vogels en wat er anders zo geluid maakt in de bush. Het is een eigenlijk groot landhuis met 5 gasten kamers. Je kunt zelf koken of BBQ. alles is aanwezig, alleen zelf de boodschappen doen (Spar, 10 min). Restaurant nabij gelegen (2min) aan het Mokolodi game reserve met de beste steaks van zuidelijk Afrika, een prachtige sunset en bezoek van Antilopes en wrattenzwijnen uit het park. Ik kom zeker terug. Zeker voor zakenreizigers aan te bevelen. Is eens wat anders. Afrika leasure travelers zullen wel vaker in dergelijke lodges verblijven, maar dan nog is dit een leuke tussenstop, SA naar NO BW of NAM e.d.

For a quiet getaway in Gabs, this is the place to

Posted 06-Jun-2013 on Hotels
Beautiful surroundings very close to Gabaronne but you feel miles away from the hustle and bustle. If propping your feet up and listening to the birds sing while you enjoy a gourmet breakfast poolside is what you want, this is the place.Not easy to get around if you do not have transportation but a lovely place.

This was a total dissapointment

Posted 27-May-2013 on Hotels
I did not stay, I checked out 15 minutes after checking in. Bathrooms are outdoors, room had no TV no Aircon. I could not connect to the WI-FI and the hostess had mo answers for me, after checking out no one even bothered to call me and find out why I was dissapointed. I cheked into another lodge and had TV, WI-FI, Aircon, private indoor bathroom and great breakfast included.
