I enjoyed my stay at Holiday Inn Bulawayo. The service was great, the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. I got service with a smile. I would definitely recommend it to other travellers. A bit pricey though.

The hotel offers delicious meals in abundance. Staff are well groomed and helpful. The hotel is close to a nice and exclusive shopping centre away from the busy town centre. Upper floors on the western side offer a wonderful glimpse of the city of Bulawayo.

A warm welcome and speedy check in process. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I was impressed by the rate at which the food was served not leaving out the quality. Rates were relatively lower than during peak periods. It's wiser to book in advance as the rates go up during peak periods.

Most of the other reviews sum up this hotel quite well. I agree with the comments that it needs a revamp-I'm sure that will come in due course. Staff very welcoming, linen clean and crisp, aircons loud but a necessity, dinner ok but steak tough and beans undercooked. Wifi however I found to be erratic and appallingly slow when it... More

I think this is probably the top hotel in Bulawayo, it is very clean and comfortable, but the rooms probably need some updating. The shower is very nice and the bed was comfortable.
