“Best B&B in Bulawayo”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

Ingrid's is a small family run B&B located in Hillside. Access from Harare and Beit Bridge is quick and easy, and getting into town is painless. Ingrid usually greets all incoming guests in person, as not much escapes her notice from her office located next to the breakfast room, overlooking the gravelled drive and parking area.
Neat paths lead through lush green lawns and flowerbeds onto the 6 rooms.
These are large and spotless, equipped with 2 single beds, TV, fridge, tea making facilities as well a small lounge suite and private verandah, with plenty of plug point for the business traveller.
The TV has a number of channels available, controlled from the main house, so if you have a particular request, even if it is for a European channel, just speak to Ingrid, and if she can help, she will.
There is a pool for guests to use in hot weather.
The bathrooms are immaculate and well, if plainly supplied. Piping hot water in the showers is always there.
Don't look for cosy amenities here, the emphasis is on comfortable, quiet, and secure accommodation. Breakfast is always simple, self-serve continental style, with freshly-brewed coffee that'll really jolt your grey cells into life. Ingrid will usually be on hand to chat, and help with tea, toast and extra coffee!!
I have stayed at Ingrid's many times over the last twelve years, on business, with family, from one night to a week, and will continue to do so.
She is often absolutely full during the week, and it is almost impossible to get in on a cold call. However, once you are on her list of 'regulars', she will do almost anything to accommodate you.
There is no other meal service available, but there are a number of restaurants close by, and local pizza or chicken take-aways will deliver.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very similar in layout and size.
