Stayed here for 5 nights whilst visiting local schools. The staff were lovely, the rooms were large and clean with good facilities such as TV, fridge, air conditioning and kettle. The bar was lively and cheap for drinks. The food was OK but not everything was available. The water in shower often didn't work, nor did the WiFi. However, with the infrastructure issues in zim. I didn't expect it to be as nice as it was. Beds so comfy, linen crisp and good quality as we're the towels and toiletries. I have taken off 2 stars for the plumbing and WiFi issues which were a real inconvenience.

I had a wonderful business meeting at The Village Lodge, in Gweru, along Shurugwi Rd, where the environment is pretty relaxed with lots of greenery. The food especially the braai, was fresh and delicious.

It is just before you hit town and boy did they convert our dear old African huts into class. From afar you would think its one of the many but from the inside the view is splendid. Good food service. A bit lacking in the number of employees in customer service which led to the few available being overwhelmed, even though they delivered and impressed. Fair prices and they catter for people of all financial backgrounds and walks of life.

We were tired from a long trip and were looking for an overnight rest place in Gweru . The village lodge gave us that rest. Good dinner in a thatched restaurant, Chinese food also available, sadza too. The heater in the dining was a plus in the cold area of Gweru. However because of the bar we were disturbed just after midnight when people were making noise past our room . We concluded the people were coming from the bar.
