Had a good experience at the hotel, amazing staff who are very helpful. The food was good and I loved the traditional dishes. The condition of the rooms is deteriorating and they now require upgrading.

Lighting needs urgent attention. The hotel need to seriously! look at implementing a solar energy system. There was more darkness than there was electricity. Room gardgets like TV remote and fridges need replacement!

Great Zimbabwe Hotel is one of the best hotels in Masvingo Province and I look forward to staying here , whenever I am in Masvingo . Whereas I highly rate the hotel , I feel it is slowly losing its competitiveness in the market with dropping standards and services that may result in clientele opting for other nearby options.

The layout and size of this hotel shows that it must have been a great place in its heyday but starting to look a little tired now. Certainly a great location if you are visiting the Great Zimbabwe Ruins. Rooms are clean and a good size but could do with a face lift. The grounds are well looked after and...

Unfortunatelly the room and the bath was not clean at all. After cleaning 2sqm of bathroom floor with a towel it was completely black. The site is great and the restaurant served good food but for high prices. If you pay 28US$ for breakfast you could expect more. The sundowner-view is great!

The hotel is right next to the ruins of ancient Zimbabwe. The hotel has a decent standard, the room quite clean , hot water without restrictions , only a single cockroaches . A complimentary breakfast in the English style . Vaguely exorbitant prices , but it's probably standard in Zimbabwe

I had a business visit to Masvingo, and had an opportunity to stay at Great Zimbabwe hotel. The place was conducive for the business workshop we had. I stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the stay. The conference room was heated up during the cold days. This made our meeting productive without worrying about the cold weather outside. The food...
