Wise Owl opened again... Internet connection much improved, now fast even in the rooms. Dusty carpets replaced by tiles. Unfortunately most of the staff is also new, very young and un experienced. The price has not changed, 62 USD for B&B. A glass of wine @ USD 2. I maintain my statement: value for money.

This is a reasonable priced hotel in Mutare and about what you can expect for a 65 dollar room in Zim. My room was clean. The staff is super friendly and service oriented. There is a noce pool, ut forgot my swimming gear :) .

Stayed at this motel for one night and was glad to leave. Obviously no maintenance has been done to this place in many years. The room and bathroom were not clean, the bed was very uncomfortable. No modern amenities. One plus: the staff is very friendly.

We arrived on the 20th of January 2013. We booked into Room 60 which is a family room. My regret was not seeing the room prior to booking.
