The Riley's Hotel was founded in 1910 by Harry Riley. By that time it was only an extra rondavel right next to his own; only suitable for one guest and very poorly equipped. Later on, he expanded his little 'hotel' by joining the two huts together and creating a simple dining room in between. It can be said that this was Maun's first hotel! That is the reason why the Riley's is often more seen as an institution rather than just a hotel.
Our view of Rileys Hotel
We view Riley's Hotel as a relatively reliable, if generally uninspiring, hotel that's very conveniently positioned at the heart of Maun. It's lost much of the character that its history might imply – but it's still a useful place if you need to overnight in Maun, and haven't got the time to reach the rather more interesting Royal Tree Lodge.
