We arrived around 2pm @ were surprised when our room was not ready so they moved us, so we did not have to wait long. Comfortable room & bed, good shower over the bath but curved shape gave you enough room & nice & hot. Breakfast was good too so would happily stay again & recommend.

I was on a business trip for only one night. The place is very close to everything in the Maun town. It was a very pleasant stay at Cresta Riley's. My colleague also quite enjoyed the stay. I would return to the place anytime.

Reviewed 6 August 2016 via mobile

The friendliness of the reception here is unmatched. Botswana is just magnificent. The lodge is conveniently situated and offers excursions during the day. The pool bar is great. Rooms are clean and adequate. However a TBone steak with the fillet cut off simply cannot be sold at a premium as TBone. Send it back. Highly recommended lodging.

We stayed for one night in one of the rooms in the updated section in late July and found the room dirty beyond belief. The floor looked like it hadn't been swept in weeks with crumbs and just plain dirt all over the place. There was a huge t.v. on the wall and the speaker was crackling so badly we...

After not being able to accommodate us in another establishment in town, we ended up in this hotel. Room very nice and spotless clean with good working heating system. The food at the restaurant, dedpite the long wait, was also really good, so all in all a positive experience.

Reviewed 16 July 2016

The hotel is in the main street, but set back from the road, and backing onto the Thamalakane river, so is peaceful for a town hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, the welcome drink was a nice touch. Our rooms were comfortable and in good condition, and the breakfast absolutely fine.
