Great stay, great staff
They stay was great. We had to wait a bit for our room to be ready at check in, the lady at reception was fine. The two gentleman at reception were very good, even helped us organize tours and excursions. Location good, about 45min walk to the center, but had to take a taxi after dark for safety. Room was very nice and clean, WiFi worked good.

Great price for a great space & impeccable service
One of my sisters stayed at Motsamai last year and she couldn’t stop raving about it. I discovered for myself that she wasn’t exaggerating her glowing reviews! It was super clean and comfortable, with a modern feel and serious bang for your buck. I really liked the double sink in the bathroom, as well as the general design of the bathroom. The water pressure in the shower was perfect, and it didn’t take long for the water to heat up. I could have slept all day in that bed, with its warm blankets and plush pillows. The WiFi connection was really strong (something not to be taken for granted!). The kitchen staff graciously accommodated our request for breakfast, at a time when most hotels would have stopped serving that meal! We would have stayed longer if not for the lodge being booked out for the week for a conference! I highly recommend Motsamai, and hope to return someday!

The place to stay while in Bulawayo!
This is a neat and well maintained guest lodge. The grounds and ambiance of this place were delightful day and night. My room was always clean and comfortable with daily maintenance. Hotel staff was friendly, helpful and hospitable. The food although tasty and well prepared lacked variety during my 13 night stay. Thanks to everyone at Motsamai for making my stay a delight.
