Having spent much time as a kid in the ruins of this place, it was great to see how well it has been restored and is now fully functional. Beautiful gardens nestled in the drought ravaged province. Staff very friendly and happy to show the place off to us. Well done guys

The place which has the historic castle as a home. Very quiet place. Good for hosting seminars as well the garden is well looked after you really breath fresh air away from the bustling city

Reservation was made and kept 😄. Lovely oldman to serve us who was quite bubbly. Food was not quite i expected but edible. Mainly found that the gap between meals was very short and found myself stuffing down my food not having a chance to "breathe". Great music was goin on downstairs wich we eventualy joined and enjoyed ourselfs

Beautiful setting in the Bulawayo suburbs. The grounds are lovely and the building has been beautifully restored to its former glory. A characterful venue.
