Absolutely stunning decor, and incredible use of spaces.
The rooms are lovely, there’s air conditioning and separate showers and bath (in the bigger rooms). You’ll get a mini fridge or a full fridge with a kettle and mugs.

The thatched gazebo which houses the kitchen is my favourite place at this guest house. It’s spacious, beautifully decorated and so functional. We used to have all our meals here, and enjoyed it’s proximity to the pool, as well as being constantly cool and ventilated.

Patricia is an incredible host, and goes out of her way to accommodate your needs. There’s laundry facilities for a small fee, or you can do your own handwashing in the laundry if you’re so inclined.

The location is in a residential neighborhood, which is usually quiet apart from Sundays. It’s a short 10minute walk to the nearest mall called Galo (has supermarkets, clothing, pharmacies, liquor stores) etc

There’s also a beauty spa nearby (under 5 minute walk).

I highly recommend this lovely haven if you ever need to stop by in Francistown.

We stayed with Patricia for two months during an attachment at the local hospital. And I would say, we found a home away from home! Patricia is the most considerate and helpful person you will find in Francistown, her place is always tidy, the garden is beautiful and whatever you need, Patricia will assist you in any way possible!
AC in every room and the pool in the garden make the heat in Francistown even enjoyable and the location is close to anything one can need.
We will definitely be back!

Patricia made us very welcome and went out of her way to make this a fantastic place to stay.

The outdoor cooking facilities were excellent and the pool was appreciated when we required cooling off.

The rooms were clean and I would recommend New Earth to anyone planning a stay in Francistown.

We were a group of 16 that were promised comfortable and adequate accommodation.
Our requirements were clearly presented well in advance. However the host did not inform us that some of us would be sleeping on mattresses on the floor.
Although she indicated that this was a serviced unit, we were expected to wash up our own dishes!
The rooms were not cleaned, bathrooms not washed and towels not changed during our 4 day stay.
Tea and coffee facilities in the rooms were not provided as advertised.
The children were asked not to splash water in the pool.
We were asked to switch off a/c, geysers etc.
The host made many promises prior to our arrival and simply could not keep them.
The host was ever- present and intrusive.
Breakfast was lovely but not sufficient.
We were mis-led as to the type of accommodation this is.

Will not go back.

Absolute gem. Honestly never felt this welcome. The host is extremely gracious, my wife and I passed through and stayed for two nights, this isn't a Hotel but we liked it 100 times better than the more established brands we stayed at previously in Botswana.

We showed up late and without reservation but Patricia, the host was able to get a nice family room for us. Also included is free use of kitchen and garden with a pool. Great value for money. Highly recommended if passing thru Francistown.

We had the outside room by the pool which was really very nice. Patricia was our host and she was most helpful. I do not know if we just got unlucky but the night we were there, dogs in the neighbourhood barked all night and there was a lot of traffic noise so a good night's sleep was not the highlight of our stay.

Patricia was very helpful and accommodating throughout the whole booking process. I had to go back and forth to her with various questions and options etc, and she was always very helpful. Clean, tidy, home from home.
