Very helpful staff,clean rooms and toilets.hot shower after a long day of work.Wifi if you need to do more work after hours.Not many t.v channel options if that is your kind off thing.A nice bar at the reception area if you do not feel like driving into town.

I stayed there for two nights towards end of November 2016, We were not with the place and attitude of some of the staff who seemed not to care about our concern. It only changed on the second day when there were staff changes. The housekeeping staff was not friendly and need a bit of training. The place needs a...

This place is definetely run down. The rooms look dingy and its even worse that they do not switch on corridor lights when the rooms are not occupied. I am not sure whether the motel is secure - as we did not see any guard there. Definetely needs a face lift

I hadn't been to Wise Owl in a number of years. I think they are doing well to keep afloat. I was pleased with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The rooms were clean and the food was good. I wouldn't mind going back there.

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.

Perhaps it will be rennovated and reopened but for now no...

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. The room was extremely stuffy,an indication that the carpet had not been thorougly cleaned in a long time.The stuffiness really got to me. The quality of the blankets in the kids room...
