A very pleasant 3 nights at this historic hotel high up in the Vumba mountains. The grounds and golf course are magnificent. The hotel while not luxurious is what is correctly described by another reviewer as charming. We had a suite which was clean and well maintained, with two WC's and a sitting room (with rather uncomfortable furniture0 and two... More

One of the most spectacular and serene settings in Zimbabwe, scenic mountain views in every direction and the feeling that you are immersed in nature. The hotel itself oozes old world charm, which, together with the setting allows you to look past the fact that it needs a freshening up - its patina. Spectacular golf course and being able to...

A few renovations are needed on the rooms.The food is lovely, cocktails are a wonder.Thumbs up to the barman James! Did not like it when they switched off power when i needed to charge my phones.Enjoyed the... More

Although I am not a golfer, I enjoyed a quiet week-end at this historical mountain resort. The golf course is really stunning, the rooms need a bit of revamping and the food needs improving (one of the worst cups of coffee in my life) but it is generally a great week-end retreat, about four hours' drive from Harare. Do not... More

We stayed at Leopards Rock for a week of golfing. The place has character and charm but it does require a fair amount of upkeep and maintenance. Our room was large and clean but a little tired looking. The bed was a little soft but OK. The bathroom had a constant leak from the shower/bathtub so there was always a... More

Went to Leopard Rock for a game of golf and was blown away by the course - its beauty, its challenging holes, its views over the valley and its well kept neat and tidy course. Just fabulous if you are in to golf. We also had lunch at the club house which was great - fast service and lovely food.... More

...for the price. E.g updated furnishings, better dining room (the entrance area is very dated), better amenities - e.g. a spa - the gym was out of use during the Christmas period. I highly recommend the guided hike in the morning, the guide was really good - but he uses the same route everyday. The sunset game viewing deck was... More

This was our second visit this year. We always love coming back to this wonderful place, which has one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world. The food and the service cannot be faulted and the staff are so friendly, where nothing is too much trouble. There has been a considerable amount of money spent on new carpets... More

The service at this hotel is top notch! The staff is friendly and right on top of everything. The quality of the rooms, however, could leave a little to be desired if you are looking for that top of the line, ultra high class feel. If you are just looking for a comfortable stay, this is a great place. They... More

Beautiful location, very helpful and willing staff. The hotel is now worn out and it is nowhere like it used to be. Compared to another golden oldie like the Vic Falls Hotel this one has had little or no maintenance and up keep. Bathrooms now very old and grimy, old wooden window frames rotting, beautiful doors being replaced with cheap... More
