“Comfortable stay in Gaborone”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Stayed here for a few days while on business in Gaborone. Room was nice, very comfortable. Bed was also pretty comfortable. Just take your own pillow though, found mine to be extremely spongy and unnatural. Managed to find a "thin" one that was not too big, so that worked out alright.

The room is nice, and served it's purpose well. Bathroom also ok, but the placement of the doorstopper in front of the bath (where one gets out), is a little odd. And my stay started off with a bathroom sink that would't drain properly.

Breakfast came included, which was not too bad either. Served the type of food you would generally find at these kinds of hotes. Sausages, bacon, cereals, fruits, yoghurt - the usual. With the chef preparing fresh scrambled or fried eggs to order.

Generally, I enjoyed the stay there, but found it too be quite expensive. Also, I am not sure of how the hotel grading system works, but this is a 5 star hotel..... and it definitely is a nice hotel. But 5 star? I'm not so sure about that....

Will I go back... yeah, most probably will.

We are pleased that you found our establishment ‘comfortable’ , but we disappointed that you would not rate us 5 star.

We have compared our pricings with similar establishments locally, regionally and internationally and found us to be quite comparable if not ‘less expensive’.

We appreciate your feedback and would be delighted for you to visit us again.

Check in was very smooth and efficient. However, no info on WiFi connectivity in the room so had to walk back down to the reception to buy a voucher to connect. WiFi is extremely poor and could only work when i was in my bathroom which is next to the main door to the corridor. Couldn't get WiFi connectivity from anywhere else in the room (343). The room is clean and comfortable but quite old fashioned in terms of decor. Bed is very comfortable though. Mini bar prices extremely fair. Meals in the restaurants are good and reasonably priced. Overall, a good hotel but poor WiFi connectivity and procedure for access.

Room Tip: Ask which room has better WiFi connectivity

The management and staff are grateful for your feedback and comments without which we would not be able to continually improve our service and facilities.

The WIFI collateral is also now available both at reception and in the Hotel rooms. We apologise for this oversight.
Your favourable comments regarding the Hotel pricing and the comfort of the Hotel bedrooms is appreciated.

Over priced and one would expect to have wireless internet included at $200/day rack rate!
Especially as the Metcourt on the same property is only a third of the price.
Beef Baron Restaurant is always great to enjoy a good steak.

The hotel is situated outside the city center. The rooms were neat and clean but is need of an upgrade for the price they charge. I find their rates quite excessive. Front desk staff was quite helpful. Special parking should be allocated to hotel guests. Guests are charged an entrance fee to the casino. No free wi fi and breakfast was quite expensive and is not added on when quoted for with the room charges.

Stayed at the sister hotel Metcourt on previous visit but the room was too cramped, booked at the Walmont for a better experience but was not impressed. Old run down rooms, need a upgrade - the Metcourt was in better shape.
Nice view from the room of the pool area, good restaurants down stairs.
Bad bad news for business travellers, no free Wi-Fi, I had to pay for my 5 day stay and after 3 days the allocated time was up, the MB's is very expensive. So if you plan to do work after hours as I did, expect to pay additional 500 Pula

I stayed 2 nights on business. It's a pity that the hotel has not been revamped since the early days when it was still the Sheraton.

The bathrooms require serious renovation with paint peeling off the walls.

The Beef Baron remains the single main reason to stay- the quality of the food has remained since it first opened and it gives one a feeling of dining in an old railway carriage. A must visit for first timers- the best of Botswana beef!

The close proximity to the international conference centre makes it a great location too.

I did not notice the casino on the premises as the noise was well contained in the entertainment complex.

This hotel and casio complex is situated just outside Gaborone city centre. I was on the 5th floor (executive i think) and the room was spacious, clean and well decorated.

There are a couple of restuarants in the hotel complex and the Steak House was very good, i ate there 2 nights running and also ate in the Chinese restaurant which wasnt bad.

All failry decent African hotels are overpriced but its either that or stay somewhere less safe and secure.

Internet connection was average but it kept kicking me off the wireless network and i had to re-enter the access code very frequently which became annoying.

Room Tip: 5th Floor Executive rooms and floor, far quiter and nicer.
