Second time to stay at Banff and the place looks great since all the refurbishments - the bathrooms were very clean - beds comfortable and rooms are nicely decorated. The food was excellent too. We will be back. The Bar around the pool is a nice place to get to know the "locals" of Bulawayo. thanks for having us.

Travelled to Bulawayo and stayed at the Banff Lodge. The place is well kept and everything was in excellent condition. The staff were all on point, from reception to the bar and restaurant. Value for Money stay !

Stopped here unexpectedly and was greeted and welcome by the friendliest host who help arrange a family room for us. The rooms are big and lovely decorated - really not what we have expected in Zim. The pool is crystal clear and the huge garden is well kept with a play park for the kids. It is as if the... More

Banff Lodge has great customer service, super pricing on rooms, and the nicest people ever. The breakfast has the lightest fluffiest scrambled eggs and the table next to fire place is the best seat in the house. Rooms are clean and super bright. And again everyone from security at the front gate to the bartenders to the reception desk are... More

this lodge is a fine example of excellent amenities and service. I found the atmosphere welcoming and friendly. The warmth of the place makes it an ideal place to stopover. Next time I'm in Byo I am staying over at this hotel.

Nicely situated in the residential suburbs of Bulawayo, it was a bit of a hassle to find. But once there we enjoyed it immensely, except for that we froze a bit during night so some means of heating would be an improvement at this time of the year. Large, lovely grounds were the kids could run wild after hours in... More

We stayed at Banff lodge two times about a month ago and had a nice clean family room with a beautiful view and good wi-fi connection. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was nice so we decided to have a dinner there as well - it was delicious and the portions were quite big. Thank you! Tourists... More

We visited Bulawayo over the Easter weekend from the USA and stayed at Banff Lodge. Clean, friendly, comfortable, peaceful setting in Hillside. Gorgeous well manicured garden, sparkling pool, spacious secure overnight parking. Very encouraging to see all walks of life coming together at the end of the day for a sundowner on the deck, with a singalong in the background.... More
