We had an initial hiccup with a different room being reserved than what we actually booked on expedia so I recommend confirming with the Inn via phone which room you have booked but they sorted it out for us and we had a really nice stay. Stayed a night each in the deluxe family and the family rooms and both were clean, nice, spacious rooms and had everything we needed. Both restaurants connected to the Inn had great food and service. Thank you.

Restaurants and shops within short walking distance. Weekends can be noisy at night because of street parties and music nearby

Does the job
Stayed at Digger Inn a number of times now. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Had very little interaction with staff beyond collecting keys but they are friendly. Wifi system is a little arcane and patchy. Food in the restaurant leaves much to be desired. The Thorn Tree is much better than the hotel bar/restaurant. But overall, for Francistown, it works. I will stay there again.
