We stayed at Banff Lodge for a week. The Accommodations were very good. The staff was helpful and courteous; laundry service was good also. The Food was very good. We felt safe and secure, even in the evening hours. I would highly recommend Banff Lodge if you are planning a trip to Bulawayo.

We met up with friends and spent the entire afternoon visiting over 2 meals and drinks! Staff were friendly and helpful. The service was excellent. They did5nt tire of us or chase us away even though we stayed beyond closing time. Wifi was available for guests. Clean toilets. Would love to go back.

Watched the barman Mabhena pushing a bar customer during an argument on the 30th of December 2016. Never the best way to deal with disagreements or provocation.Very disappointed in whats normally an extremely pleasant establishment.

Went there for lunch with hubby and kids. The food was excellent and i liked that there was ample space in the grounds for the kids to play. The waiters were attentive and offered good alternatives for a picky eater in our party.

Initially I felt the Reception team were a bit distant but as time went on became they all became very cooperative and friendly. Rooms very...

Our volunteer surgical team stayed here for a week and although we were'tt here for holiday, our stay at the lodge was wonderful. The service in the restaurant was great- a variety of items on the menu. The rooms are comfortable with all the little extras- coffee, tea maker, extra blanket, comfy beds. Lisa is a great host!
