Fodor's Expert Review Cresta Riley's

Tsheko Tsheko Rd., Maun, North West, Botswana

A Maun institution, this comfortable modern hotel, now under Cresta ownership and situated on the banks of the Thamalakane River, is a far cry from the seven dusty rooms built by the legendary Harry Riley in the 1930s. Harry's Bar is still going, although planes no longer taxi straight up to the bar as in the good old days, and it's frequented more by businessmen than locals. Rooms are comfortable and clean but not particularly imaginative, and Riley's Grill still serves a good meal.
