8/10 Very good

This place is charming. I love the guesthouse feel. The food was great, the staff gracious and accommodating, the host responsive and accommodating. The wifi was reliable and fast as well. The house is big, spacious, and had lots of historical charm. If I go back to Bulawayo, I will definitely stay here.
