  • 2.0.Poor

    Didn't like anything about this property. I was very badly treated, given an awful room which was no where near the standard i would have expected for the price I paid. I did eventually get another room, which was better but still not great, noisy, cold shower, very dated, broken chair and three bathroom wasn't that clean. Food was also of a poor quality

    Good position for viewing the Great Zimbabwe Ruins

    We chose this hotel for its nearness to the great Zimbabwean Ruins. It is a pleasant 700 metres walk. Our room was large, room and bathroom in need of upgrading. The bed large and comfortable. The staff without exception were friendly, helpful and efficient. The buffet breakfast, which was included was great. There are no aircons only a fan. Feel that this Hotel is over priced.

    Hotel in desperate need of renovation

    Though the setting is stunning and the staff is sweet the hotel is completely overpriced for the current state it is in. As with many of Zim hotels it has not had any renovations or upgrading done in decades. The bathroom was the worst, hardly a working shower and the tab of the basin did not give water. Loose tiles, dirty walls, chips and cracks everywhere. The setting is great, next to the stunning Great Zimbabwe monument.
