A warm welcome and speedy check in process. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I was impressed by the rate at which the food was served not leaving out the quality. Rates were relatively lower than during peak periods. It's wiser to book in advance as the rates go up during peak periods.

Most of the other reviews sum up this hotel quite well. I agree with the comments that it needs a revamp-I'm sure that will come in due course. Staff very welcoming, linen clean and crisp, aircons loud but a necessity, dinner ok but steak tough and beans undercooked. Wifi however I found to be erratic and appallingly slow when it...

I think this is probably the top hotel in Bulawayo, it is very clean and comfortable, but the rooms probably need some updating. The shower is very nice and the bed was comfortable. Our airconditioner did struggle a bit, but otherwise we were quite happy with our stay. The staff are incredibly friendly, the food is very good and there...

I really do think this is the most ideal place to stay in Bulawayo. Situated in a very quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of town, there as a shopping mall situated just behind the hotel , though its very close to town if you need to dash in to purchase something.
