Absolute Gem, 10/10, Would come again.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 05 Jun 2024
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.
Date of stay: June 2024
Room Tip: Don't believe the FUD.

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.

Room tip: Ask for one of the outside rooms.

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!

We liked this guesthouse a lot. The host is an important figure here. She couldn't do breakfast when we were there but had a good suggestion. The rooms were very comfortable. GPS couldn't find it. Secure parking.

It was a challenge with the lack of electricity but it was through no fault of the lodge, the room we were eventually given was pleasant and Patricia went out of her way to ensure that all was in order to make sure we had the best stay

Room tip: Enjoy your time here, it does get noisy with traffic but everything else outweighs this

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.
