Situated in the Hillside suburb of Bulawayo, Banff Lodge offers comfortable, mid-range accomodation and facilities. Set in lovely gardens, the lodge has a pool, undercover bar and deck where you can have meals. Banff is currently undergoing an upgrade but the rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and bathrooms are spacious. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful.... More

Great hotel with beautiful garden and main building. Nice pool and bar/restaurant as well. Hotel was good at recommending trips as well. Hotel was a bit pricey for what it offered (no Wifi room) but overall a very nice experience.

How great to go back to Bulawayo after so many years and find Banff Lodge still flourishing. It still offers great accommodation and service and the New Orleans Restaurant, a great favourite from days past, is as good as ever.

I went to have a meal at the new renovated pool terrace, The Deck. Firstly the surroundings will astound you, the ambiance is something that reminds me of being on a beautiful wine farm in cape town. Under the fantastic new owners, everything has been upgraded and updated. The Deck is a restaurant pool terrace bar, with a very welcoming... More

Thank you and to all the staff for making our stay very pleasant. We really appreciated not being charged for cutting our visit short. A special thanks to Caroline, Nelson and Vilem for their professionalism and front of house operation. Also, the catering Manager is doing an outstanding job with the meals. Top notch.

We travelled to Bulawayo with family for just one night. Banff Lodge was booked for us by my Uncle and I must say I was presently surprised. The rooms are spacious, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom neat. Although all the fixtures and fittings are somewhat tired and old, everything is clean and well kept. Breakfasts were good, a... More

Banf Lodge is Bulawayo in a nutshell. It is welcoming , cosy , set about 25 yrs behind Harare and unpretentious . We enjoyed the stay and found our double room ( number 9 , that has a small balcony leading to a Garden) clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very good with a choice of English or a health option....

nothing out of the ordinary - but then Bulawayo does not have a lot out of the ordinary to offer. The establishment is a like a somewhat tired but hospitable old lady. Nothing pretentious, everything works, comfort food and cold beers. Rooms are old. Beds are old. Showers are old. but everything is adequate. in some other part of Africa... More
