I am from Canada. My friend is from Denmark. We booked the hotel for the location and price, both good. We booked a room with balcony and drinking water. Neither were provided until we asked to change rooms. The bed was comfortable and the heat was good for a cool night. Housekeeping was wanting and it took 5-10 minutes to get hot water. There were few guests. We were the only guests in the dining room which has basic food and momentoes of past glories including opulent silver. The hotel was the former Salisbury Club for whites in the past. I saw pictures of members up to 1991. It was like staying in a museum. Edward Ellis Ottawa, Canada
There is very old and dirty place. No air conditioner. All rooms are very dark. Towels are with holes. No security. A breakfast tastes terrible. Wifi doesn't work at all. Stay away from this place. Only the location is fine
It's located right on African Union Square. Rooms are ok. Nice breakfast in an elegant dining room (waiters in uniform). They also have a sister club in Kenya (Muthaiga Country Club). It was a private club before independence but now it's a hotel. I would book it again.
This is both a club and a hotel. Founded by the Brits in the 1890's as a private club it still remains one but lets out its 30+ rooms to the general public. It is situated in its own building, part of a complex built in the 1960's when Zimbabwe was a different place and name. Those by-gone days still linger as can be seen in the artwork where views of London far outweigh those of the Limpopo. There is a faded grace and charm to this place where there are still signs to the "powder room" and telephone kiosks remind us of times before we got mobile phones grafted to our hands. The bar is large and friendly, I had lively conversations with Moses the barman as he kept me well supplied with local beer. I also enjoyed the company of local members who told me of the club and country. The food is also good and reasonably priced. I had a "full English" included in my room rate and enjoyed it although drinking coffee with chicory was odd~it brought back memories of a long passed past. This I suppose sums up the place but it is looking to a future. The Club is under new management and are slowly revitalising its fabric.. Don't, however, expect the gleaming souless air conditioned boxed sterility of a classic chain. The rooms are large enough and clean and comfortable as are the bathrooms. The hot water arrives eventually and is constant. There is no air conditioning but the rooms cool as the evening progresses. So here are the things I liked about the place; . *Central location-you are right in the centre of the City. The Zimbabwe Parliament is on the opposite corner of the square. Unlike the Lodges you re able to experience the real city~my trip to the central Post Office was fun~much better than dropping off the envelopes with a hotel concierge! *Charm-this is a unique blend of the bygone with the currently being updated current * Price-very attractive *Bar and the ability to meet and talk with members. * It is most unlikely that a tourist excursion group will be booked in at the same time as you. The things I didn't like: *The bar and so food is closed at the weekend except for breakfast breakfast each morning *There are odd TV channels~one only showed JC van Damme movies! So I thoroughly recommend those who want to try this to do so. Will I go again? Yes, I hope you do so as well.…
