This place has a unique setting and design for every room. Every detail considered. Bar and restaurant area are dramatic and superb. It is half an hours drive from Mavingo but hotel were happy ton organise car and driver to help us throughout our stay.

This was my second stay at The Lodge at The Ancient City - I returned because I found the location and facilities spectacular. Service was friendly and food was also tremendous this time - as a vegetarian, my preferences were taken care of. I will return again and highly recommend this wonderful lodge!

Very well maintained property. The rooms are exceptionally clean and so refreshing! Beautiful views, trees and relaxing atmosphere. However, the food was underwhelming. Not much variety on the menu. A little bit of planning from the chef and seasoning can transform their meals. The drinks and meals are overpriced.

Absolutely great place! I would totally recommended. The only problem is that the confirmation email you get and even the address received will send you to some place near the Polithecnic Institute of Maswingo when, in reality, the Lodge is quite far from that, near the Ancient City.

Spectacular design and atmosphere. Very welcoming. Great experience. Meals pleasant and homely but not on a par with the decor.

Absolutely fantastic. The perfect setting for visiting Great Zimbabwe and the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable and went out of their way to solve my petrol problems (successfully). Great rooms, with fantastic views and a beautiful restaurant.They even washed my car as a little surprise bonus.

This has to be one of the most atmospheric hotels anywhere. The room was huge as was the bathroom and the decor exceptional. I am a vegetarian and the chef made me a vegetarian main course. It was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

It’s was great being back to the motherland,Zimbabwe Africa. The ruins are really great. Just showed how innovative our ancestors were though the media does say much about the acumen of the black Africans.Having my wife and daughter with me, my mother, my mother in law , my grandmother and all my siblings around was really awesome. Chatting on starry nights and just connecting with nature as well a my beautiful family was just priceless. Coming from a Canadian winter. The break from the cold was really well appreciated . This was a great experience!!

The staff were very friendly and welcoming.The lodge is very clean and earthy/natural, built around the the natural local granite stone, it’s a resemblance of Zimbabwe Ruins.The bar and dining areas are quite spectacular featuring these granite stones right inside them.We were meant to stay for one night but we ended up adding another night.The location and set up of this lodge is very quiet peaceful and refreshing.If you’re looking for a get away place there’s one 😀
