“Best hotel around - just be patient!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2006

The Grand Palm - now called the Walmont Ambassador - is certainly the best hotel within hundreds of miles. The rooms are comfortable, if a bit used. The grounds are beautifuly landscpaed and fit well with the surrounding bush. The Beef Baron (the hotel's ala carte restaurant) is probably the best restaurant in Gaborone, but there are other good options in the hotel, including the attractive outside restaunrant by the pool. Service is friendly and slow - bring time.

The Grand Palm is a great hotel and certainly the best in Gaborone. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful, although they can be a bit slow at time. Check out took half an hour (we were the only ones checking out at that time) and they had lost the credit card number we gave them previously.

The livingstone restaurant at the hotel has delicious food. They have a huge buffett spread of breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Beef Baron grill has superb beef. Hotel bar is well stocked with a nice relaxing atmosphere.

Rooms are very clean, although the bathroom could use some upgrading/touch up. Free airport shuttle is a plus.

If you are visiting Gaborone, this is defenitely the place to stay.
