Tamrin L wrote a review May 2023

This was such a lovely place that will become our constant choice for accommodation in Bulawayo. Everything was clean and comfy, the kitchen had a very extensive selection of appliances if you choose to self cater (but we appreciated the catering option too). There are multiple areas in which to spend your time, and the communal spaces are well thought out to create privacy. The staff were very helpful, and we wish we had more time to enjoy the space more.

Hi Tamrin Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a lovely review. We are excited that you have chosen Travellers to be your home away from home whenever you are in Bulawayo. We are also happy that our facilities were up to the standard you were looking forward to and you found the staff to be helpful. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Until then, we wish you all the best!

Myself and a friend stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Bulawayo, and would definitely recommend! Twin ensuite room was perfect for us and very clean, and great to have a pool to use. Staff were particularly helpful and friendly, and Leonard on the desk sorted out all our questions regarding day trips and transfers etc. They cleaned our car free of charge and the prices were definitely reasonable for Zimbabwe lodges! A great place to stay in Bulawayo.

I spent a wonderful afternoon and night at Travelers Guest House after the best welcome!
Because I was traveling solo, I saw that the other guests also fully enjoyed themselves; Everyone seemed to feel at home, the tasteful rooms and lovely garden around the pristine pool, beautiful kitchen, incredibly well organised, a tv lounge, bbq area, the personal touches from stunning reupholstered armchairs, to paintings from local artists, and perfect WiFi, and delicious breakfast... did I forget anything?
All ingredients were making you feel right at home.

The team is very friendly and call you by name, making you feel like their family. highly recommended and absolute great value for money.

O, I forgot to mention the good relationship with their neighbors where you can order food and the little walk to the Hillside Dams... all perfect! Well done, I hope to return soon 🤗

I have used Traveller's Lodge on all my trips to Bulawayo, and even after the COVID challenges, they have managed to maintain an excellent standard at the Lodge.
Lovely relaxing environment and the rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. The staff are very polite and helpful. Well done - see you on our next visit!

What impressed me about this guest house was the thought and the care that has been gone into the design of the rooms. One of the criteria must have been efficient simplicity of a high standard. All the furniture has been made from mukwa, glowing with a high polish and creating a simple uniformity. The art on the walls by respected Zimbabwean painters has been carefully chosen and framed. Thus the experience of being at this guest house is one not only of comfort, but also an aesthetic pleasure. In addition the staff are courteous and helpful. The water consistent and hot (an achievement in Zimbabwe) and the lights in the rooms discreetly placed to make reading easy.
The Travellers is a guest house that in a very understated manner shows off so much that is best about the country itself.

This lodge is great place to stay at reasonable prices. Rooms are clean and comfy. And David will go out of his way to try assist you. Breakfast is great and also great price. Staff is warm and welcoming. You can walk across to the next lodge for wider variety of food and bar items, but the food service at Banff lodge is so poor.. it is almost not worth it. I will certainly visit the guest house again and bring some friends.

Such kind service accommodating us at very short notice after an emergency overnight stay in Bulawayo. Very clean, a lovely pool, the restaurant next door is serving world class food and the lodge breakfast was second to none. The staff were the most friendly and helpful people I have had the privilege to meet recently. Highly recommended. The rooms, pillows and beds were extremely clean and comfortable. It felt like home away from home.

We arrived after dark from Vic Falls due to a burst tyre from those 'fabulous' roads, and were welcomed by Timothy with such a smile. Nothing was too much trouble and Timothy even offered to get up extra early to cook and pack us breakfast as we had to get to the Tyre shop by 6.30 am on Sunday morning. The dining room and kitchen area were exceptionally clean - in fact everything we experienced at the establishment in our short stay was clean and sterile. Thank you Timothy and your Team. Hospitality at its best!

Travellers Lodge is my go to place in Bulawayo. Firstly, the staff are great and accommodating. You can take your own food and keep it in the fridge if you require. They provide dinner, but there are about 3 or 4 restaurants close by if you would like variety. Added to all that, reasonably priced and very comfortable (and huge) beds

I suppose they would be accommodating, they are very friendly and easy-going. However, the pool is rather small, so don't be disappointed
