I had stayed here back in 2012 for a mission trip. This being my first time in Zimbabwe I wasn't sure what to expect in the hotel situations. I was blown away with how clean and how beautiful the grounds of this hotel were. Would for sure stay here again in the future.

Veranda and dining room is very nice. Clean....

Stayed at Sethule lodge for three nights during Trade fair 2016 and really fell in love with the place. The place is in a very quiet area and very appropriate for business travellers. Wifi was also working well. The only negative is that the place does not serve alcohol (not licenced)!!!

The general ambience in the main part of the hotel is nice and quiet. The rooms are comfortable and nice but I felt I was overcharged for what I was getting. I was housed in the new section next to the road. The hotel does not provide drinking water in the rooms and I had to buy some. They do...

The Lodge is located in a serene area in four-winds and boasts of a beautiful cool and refreshing garden. We were booked in one of the thatched rooms which were very cool considering the heat outside and it was near the pool which was very convenient. The room was spacious (and clean) with a big bed and had a nice...

I was in Bulawayo for one night and needed a reasonably priced but nice Lodge.... I found Sethule lodge on trip advisor and decided to try it out. It definitely lived up to expectations. Clean spacious rooms; air conditioning; beautiful gardens and really good home cooked meal!
