On the few occasions that I have had to put up at the Pumpkin Hotel, I have enjoyed the hospitality of the entire staff. The rooms are neat and reasonably big. However, there is need for internet for purposes of conducting business in one's room.

Happy to note that you act/respond to guests comments/feedback. On my last visit I raised issues on the non availability of internet. I was happy that this time around it was perfect. Well done! Will definitely consider Pumpkin the place to stay on my next visit.

On drive between Mutoko and Nyamapanda is this pleasant place to take a break. We have just ordered cold beverages and are enjoying them by the swimming pool.Today's temperatures are at 34 degrees and a gale over the pool is making stop over worthwhile.

This was my first time to stay at the Pumpkin Hotel and I was pleasantly surprised to note that for a hotel that was not located in a resort centre, the hotel was well appointed and well above the standards that you would expect from an out of the way hotel. The service was professional, the staff courteous and attentive,...

There was no Wifi connectivity and when I was booked at your facility, I was cut off from events happening around the world. I booked at the time of elections in Zambia, I had to rely on phone calls to get news and this came at a cost for me.

Considering the location, its not very bad but I guess you can do better in some certain areas considering the rates you are charging. Water beds should be provided only as an option or upon request - I had a water bed in my room and I found it to be very uncomfortable.
