After 6 weeks of camping in the heat of Kgalagadi, Namibia and Botswana, the well appointed/air conditioned room was tremendous.Our evening and breakfast meals both tasty and well presented (hats off to the chef)A most pleasant overnight stop.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was ordered when we arrived and we had a very tasty dinner.

I believe you receive 1000's of complaints about Xere. However, although the whole place really needs a "total facelift" the rooms were clean and neat - we even had hot water and the air conditioner worked. The kitchen and diningroom - if you can call it that - were absolutely amazing in being able to provide a not too bad meal with the LITTLE they have available. Xere has great potensial but really need a helping hand!!!!!!

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....
