The place is scenic and the resemblance of the monuments through stone construction of the buildings is excellent. however more needs to be done in terms of the furniture in rooms 25, 26 etc to modernise the rooms. the furniture is just too old.

A pleasant hotel with good food. Cooled by the occasional shower. Staff were very helpful. A good place for lunch after a visit to the Great Zimbabwe ruins. A good craft market at the hotel gates. Something for everyone?

Had a good experience at the hotel, amazing staff who are very helpful. The food was good and I loved the traditional dishes. The condition of the rooms is deteriorating and they now require upgrading.
