Our visit to this boutique hotel was such a pleasant surprise! Beautiful, graphic and romantic. The room was clean and beautiful, but unfortunately we didn't manage to sleep the entire night because we could hear the TV and conversations from the next room! Breakfast was wonderful and the staff very helpful.

The pool bar area is now well frequented in the evening so on the night I stayed was rather noisy. When i recently visited the place was undergoing renovation and it would have been appropriate to be told about this when booking. The place is well located and the renovations under way will make it a fine place to stay... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Banff Lodge! Rooms are very neat and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would easily recommend it to anyone travelling through Bulawayo. They now have wi-fi in the rooms, which is great. With their new renovations, Banff is definitely the place to stay in Bulawayo

Stayed for one night and it was one night too long. Nothing worked, loo ran all night, shower was broken, hairdryer had loose wire so also did not work. Our key broke off in the door but our main complaint was it was dirty and a complete lack of care or concern by the management. It is certainly not worthy... More

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
