Brackendene Lodge offers very attractive prices and an ideal location near Gaborone’s main shopping malls, government offices and cultural venues. Every room in the main lodge is equipped with air-conditioning, a telephone, DSTV, a refrigerator, tea- and coffee-making facilities, an en-suite shower and free WiFi. Other amenities include a free breakfast, other meals on request, laundry service, an airport shuttle, airline bookings, conference facilities and more. Rooms in a separate annex have access to full kitchen facilities.
Filomena Fakeir, CEO, established the lodge in 1988 as one of the first bed-and-breakfast operations in Gaborone. She says, “Our guests include UN consultants, people working with local embassies, SADC delegates and representatives from Botswana’s government as well as business and leisure travellers. Around 50% of our guests are from Europe, USA and the far East and I would like to attract more European visitors.”
Brackendene Lodge has been committed to training and hiring locals ever since it opened in 1988, and its staff members are known for making visitors feel welcome. Defining her lodge’s competitive edge, Filomena Fakier points out, “At Brackendene Lodge, travellers can count on high-quality service and accommodations – including free WiFi and free breakfast – all in the centre of Gaborone, yet our prices are a bargain. Brackendene Lodge is ready to be your home-away-from-home.”
