I was traveling with a colleague, and we arrived at the Village Lodge in the late afternoon. After checking-in and proceeding to my room, I discovered that only one of the rooms had aircon, despite the same rate being charged for both rooms. This was in the middle of a Zimbabwe summer!. After complaining to the staff, I was assigned another room with aircon.
The bed was comfortable, and the room was clean. Bathroom amenities were satisfactory. Food at the restaurant was ok. Breakfast was a good English breakfast. The staff were friendly and eager to please.
