The only good thing about Xere Motel was that the people were friendly, the bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked. Otherwise the so called cocktail bar was a dark room with plastic tables and chairs with a fridge behind a bar, the outside "relax" area some rusty metal chairs next to the car park and no place to sit outside your chalet other than in some dust.We had to wait more than 2 hours to get our food (which was tasty), so I recommend you order it when you check in. The general upkeep of the room was bad (curtains falling off railings, bath cracked) and it smelt like mould.... see more
We stayed at the Motel twice on our trip through Botswana. Our first stay was good in respect of the accommodation. The dinner we had left a great deal to be desired. On our second stop, the accommodation was once again good. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. There were a few little things that can be done which will go a long way to improving Xere Motel, because you have a very nice place and a good location.Firstly, your cook needs to be given training.

We had a one night stay and enjoyed it very much. Good, clean place to stay, and fabulous food. Thanks.
Xere Motel is a perfect stop over spot driving from Maun to RSA and vice versa. The staff were polite and the bedding was clean. The units need some attention though, especially the bathrooms. Otherwise there were no other issues.
First impression of the Xere motel was not very nice as the staff at reception did not want to respect the rate on our confirmation - 500 rands. Instead they asked for 500 Pulas, which was more expensive! The room was fine, but the shower head was broken and local staff was not very eager to fix it. All in all it was the least pleasant stay during our trip in Botswana.
