Located in town this was one of the first hotels in Francistown. Sadly it is now getting a bit frayed around the edges and could sorely do with some renovation. Room was small with an old TV and poor WiFi connection. A poor nights sleep accompanied by quite a few mosquitoes.

Basic camp in a nice hotel area. Very quiet camp, we had the place to ourselves. Immaculate bathroom facilities. Very friendly staff and excellent price at 75pula pp inc electricity and internet. Close to the city centre, a recommendation for anyone needing a place for the night.

The room was excellent - we had a junior suite. The dinner was very good and not overcooked, as is often the case. Unfortunately the Wi-Fi was out of order. Breakfast was also excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful

We were extremely disappointed in our stay at Tati River Lodge.Although our reservation had been confirmed we arrived to find that our booking had been lost!!After much effort we were allocated rooms. These rooms were old and in poor condition, the tap for the shower came off in my hand.The restaurant was very poor and hardly anything on the menu...

Navigating around Francistown isn't easy, but Tati River Lodge is very easy to find. The gate guard welcomed us with a friendly smile, and there is plenty of parking at reception. Service at the reception itself was a bit slow, though, and the tinny, little speaker mounted on the roof was a bit loud. Once checked in, finding the room...

We spent the weekend and found the experience very average. The hotel and rooms need a make over as there does not seem to have been much maintenance done over the last few years. The breakfast, dinner, service and experience was all in all, decidedly average. Can't say we will be rushing back.

The far end executive rooms are the most spacious. Rooms are clean and for a night away from home in Africa it's not bad. They have restaurant where you can have dinner and some drinks. Service is not that great. Their breakfast is good though and better than many other places I have stayed in Bots.

Here is one hotel that has kept me coming for more. The hotel staff always ready and eager to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Always ready to go an extra mile as the hospitality industry demands. I checked in early but managed to get a room. that was after they had even picked me up from an 0800hrs...

We checked in early morning and the receptionist was so helpful, even gave us a discount. The room was pretty small but neat. Quite location, away from the city centre. The checkb out staff was equally friendly and helpful.
