The hotel is very near to the town centre, but you feel like you are far away from the town. It's very serene. Forces you to appreciate nature in a relaxed way. Cresta Riley's Maun is the ideal place to lodge in this beautiful town.

Stayed for 1 night before I went on safari. Complimentary airport shuttle was reliable and on time. Hotel garden is peaceful and quiet. Staff is very friendly, attentive and goes the extra mile. Breakfast chef asked already in the evening about breakfast order because we had to leave very early. Everything was prepared and worked like a Swiss clock. Room is modern and spacious. Aircon worked well.

The service was excellent. Food was great. I had no problems whatsoever. The place is quiet. A great place to rest when you are on a work related visit. And great outdoor sitting area when you have friends to see in Maun. I enjoyed the open spaces.

Overall I found the hotel to be nice, good location, good restaurant, clean and some staff were very helpful. What I found frustrating was that the spa did not take appointments, some problems with the billing system, lack of hair dryer and power outage. Hopefully there are minor issues and another guest would ot experience them.

Great location close to airport with free shuttle. Good food and friendly staff. It was my birthday on morning of departure and I had forgotten! But the reception staff wished me happy birthday and presented me with a gift of a bottle of wine!
