I had been to The Deck for lunch a few times and always enjoy the ambiance of the place. I love the salad menu because the single portion is quite substantial and fills you up! The service has been really good two out of the three times I have been there. Third time we waited for 15minutes before finally going... More

The rooms are exceptionally clean and well appointed. Staff are friendly, professional and service is a very high standard. Banff Lodge is a great place to unwind and with the local restaurant and bar on site it really offers great value for money. If you need to stay in Bulawayo you cannot not stay at Banff Lodge :)

We used Banff as an overnight stay on the way from Vic Falls to Harare. It is located in a nice residential area with quite surroundings. Service is perfect by very friendly and accommodating staff. The food was excellent and lots of people visiting the place - gives a nice atmosphere. Really a place that I will recommend.

I spent five days at Banff Lodge (14-18 October 2015) and was incredibly impressed. From the moment we arrived until the morning we checked out, the staff were - without exception - incredibly friendly, polite and helpful. The bar and deck area, adjacent to the swimming pool, were a favourite spot to unwind at the end of each day, while... More

The service is of very high standard, the Food is excellent, rooms are comfortable and big,Nice Restaurant and Bullie's Pub is awesome. Only shortfall for a long stay is a TV in the room especially over week-ends,but that is the least you watch the rugby in Bullie's.

Excellent place, personal, absolutely helpful and friendly,professional service, nice rooms (spacious family room available), very fair price and a good restaurant attached. We enjoyed the garden, the pool and lovely breakfast next to it as well as the organisation of a trip to Matopos National park. No hesitation! 5 minutes by car from town.

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.
