Each time I get into Bulawayo I always use the Holiday Inn for over night accommodation. The rooms are spacious and air conditioned. With time, it will be good o remove the old air conditioning system and replace with the new one (compare Room 422 and Room 428). The food is just wonderful and ohhhhhh, this place is just good.

I have always been happy with the Holiday Inn. Was disappointed with the Aircons which were not effective especially when it was very hot and they were required to make sleep comfortable. Food was fine but was disapointed by the revolting chips. At least the room was clean.

Probably the best hotel in Bulawayo. Nice clean rooms. Good service and a gym of average standard (More equipment then standard but old equipment). There is a shopping center about 400-500 meters from the hotel where necessities can be bought and you can eat at a nice italian restaurant if you get bored with the hotel buffet.

I liked the fast Internet, great lighting and a big desk as well as executive chair. This provided me with a business environment as I needed to do some business after working hours. The beds were great, clean towels and clean bathing facilities.

Holiday Inn Bulawayo is naturally smart, the reception is extremely good. The services received are both up todate and quite professional. The rooms need new air-conditions especially executive rooms.

Stayed 4 nights and was amazed at how the staff still manage to deliver a reasonable guest experience with facilities that are so old. The Zircons in the rooms must be 30 years old & sound like a jet airplane in serious trouble. The electrics tripped several times & their are no mozzie protected windows - so you are forced... More

Stayed for one night one business. Staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean although the whole place could do with a bit of TLC. The air con unit was very old and loud which made it difficult to sleep but it was too hot to sleep without it. It was located on the floor so the room... More
