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

what a fun lodge... clean, friendly and quiet.. The food in the restaurant is wonderful and even if you're not staying here, come for dinner! Excellent choices- fresh and tasty. The staff is warm and friendly and accommodating in every way. I will certainly be back!

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

The rooms are super clean and comfortable with nice new renovated bathrooms and comfy beds. The management is friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to assist with any needs which i always appreciate!

No frills but clean and comfortable. Our only objection was having to carry our suitcases down to the very end of a long corridor - presumably to locate us as far away from the renovations as possible. Ok for an overnight stay. Dinner at the New Orleans restaurant was a definite highlight.

Picturesque garden setting by sparkling blue pool. Al fresco dining around the pool with umbrellas for shade. Open plan under thatch seating on the wooden deck with well stocked bar. Very good waiter service and management hospitality from Manageress Skye. Food very good and my plough man's platter was exceptionally good. Great family atmosphere with two flat screens to watch...

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
