Rileys Hotel - a convenient classical

We reached Rileys at 11:30 AM after leaving Nxamaseri early in the morning (4 hour drive /360Km). The roads (A35 and A3) although tarred are sometimes severely pot holed, and next to major villages, one can expect an increased frequency of livestock on the road.

We used Rileys just for one day /night in Maun, as we would need a town hotel in order to get organized for the Moremi/ Chobe trip (get supplies, exchanging money, car delivery, etc...). Within walking distance we had the major shopping centre of town with supermarkets, bottle stores, banks etc...

The hotel is a colonial style classic, rooms are spacious and clean and the service adequately good. Breakfast was excellent but the "a la carte" dinner was average/ standard.
The room offered was located on a silent part of the hotel, away from the main road, and we could have a restful evening/ night sleep.

The place to stay in Maun

We opted to stay at Riley's because we wanted to be in the middle of Maun for business-related, rather than "pure" vacation, reasons.

It suited our purposes perfectly as a location and was very pleasant and comfortable to boot, with helpful and friendly staff. Firmly recommended for anyone who needs/wants to be in town.

Rileys Hotel review

Riley's had a good shower, but otherwise the food was not that good and the whole place overpriced.

This was our third Cresta hotel of the trip and they were all that way, expensive for what you got. We would have prefered to stay in a b and b or something for that one night in Maun.

Rileys, what you see is what you get

Description on website is perfectly accurate. Comfortable, efficient but uninspiring venue. Good location, good choice for overnight stop. Interesting history, but no character left in present hotel.

Same old Rileys!!

Rileys is such a great hotel for location! They were the ONLY place in Botswana that took American Express.

Not a great hotel but familiar, comfortable and clean. Rileys just has it's own personality and we keep going back for more.
