I stayed at the Travellers Guest House which is adjacent to Banff Lodge. After spending working all day it was a great place to relax and have a drink. The team had dinner there every night. The menu is extensive. My favorite was the Mexican Pizza made in their outdoor pizza oven. There is a nice deck with a pool.

I toured the facility, and judged it very nice. I was already lodged at another location, but would definitely choose this facility for future trips to Bulawayo. I did, however, eat at the restaurant, and was most pleased. Will certainly return.

Our family (wife and two children) spent 2 nights here. Breakfast was included. We had a great stay in our own family cottage. The interior could use an update but was sufficient. The pub was loud on the Friday evening. Many local people visit the restaurant and bar - we met locals and this was a plus - we shared...

Possibly one of the finest hotel/ pubs in Africa, I may be biased on this one as my Daughter Liza is the proprietor. Her & Husband Max have lovingly restored the hotel to beyond it's former glory & it has become one of the most social & popular venues in Bulawayo. One would be very pressed to find a more...

We met up with friends and spent the entire afternoon visiting over 2 meals and drinks! Staff were friendly and helpful. The service was excellent. They did5nt tire of us or chase us away even though we stayed beyond closing time. Wifi was available for guests. Clean toilets. Would love to go back.
