Cresta Lodge - a last resort!
Not sure why we give Cresta hotels a second chance, this is not the first time they've disappointed. After driving four-and-a-half hours from Tonota and looking forward to a drink in the bar / garden area, we were informed that it was closed to hotel guests because of a function. Having booked a non-smoking room, this also meant I couldn't smoke my cigar that evening. Cresta always seem to put short-term profits before the enjoyment of their paying hotel guests - I won't mention what happened in the Cresta Marang (Francistown) a couple of years ago. If we'd had known the garden bar was closed, we would have booked elsewhere - having a few drinks in the inside cafeteria area is most definitely no substitute.

Okay, but needs better customer service
While the rooms were fine and the food was okay, the process of checking out to get my receipt was a nightmare. It took me three trips to the hotel to finally get my receipts for meals charged to my card.
