Our stay was amazing and so was the food. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good Wi-Fi and hot water. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the pub has great drinks with sports games playing. I highly recommend it.

Great lodge for transit stay. Clean, and convenient with a great restaurant and dining area. Child friendly, with a safe area between the rooms for kids to run around. The 22 room lodge is affordably priced, there is a great bar area with a huge restaurant with a great menu selection.

I just spent a week in Bulawayo and stayed at Banff. This was my second stay here. On this occasion I was on my own, but the festive and friendly atmosphere meant I was always very comfortable. The rooms are large simply furnished and comfortable, and are set in a quiet well established garden which is very well maintained. Banff is a local meeting place for dining and drinks - and the wifi is very fast! There is a pool deck with outdoor eating and bar, and an indoor restaurant area and an indoor pub all set in an old school Bulawayo house. But the best pare about the place is the service, Lisa has a very good team who are there for you exactly when you want them. But it goes much further than that. I had a covid mix up on my flight out to Johannesburg and if it wasn't for Lisa's quick thinking and organisational prowess I would have missed my flight, she organised a nurse to meet me at the lodge and rush my PCR test and organised my transport etc. Thanks Lisa! Oh and it is also very reasonably priced!

The ladies who run Banff are incredible. Their lovely staff made sure we had everything we needed. The food is good and the atmosphere on the deck is always relaxed and inviting! The new rooms are quaint and airy and very clean. Top notch in every way.

Second time staying here while in Bulawayo. Never a disappointment. Lisa and her staff are golden!!! Our accommodations were in the new wing. The rooms are tastefully done and love the wildlife paintings specific to each room. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are great!!!

Banff Lodge is a beautiful place to stay in Bulawayo. The rooms are clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The food at the Deck is delicious!!!! But, above all of that the staff is awesome. Lisa, the manager, is absolutely fantastic. And while I was there, Lisa was out for a few days and Maggie stepped up and was wonderful! Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing time! Cannot wait to come back❤️
