Bulawayo, the City of Kings, is Zimbabwe’s second largest city and is steeped in the colonial history of the country and the Ndebele people.
Founded in 1872 by King Mzilikazi, the first leader of the Ndebele nation, as Kwa Bulawayo, the city is within easy reach of Matopos National Park, where he is buried, as is Cecil John Rhodes.
A World Heritage Site, unusually qualifying in all four categories – cultural, historical, archaeological, and environmental – the Park is home to a broad variety of wild game and boasts unique rock formations. It is a must for visitors to the city, whether they are on business or enjoying a holiday.
Holiday Inn Bulawayo is located a short drive from the city centre, close to Ascot Race Course and an excellent 18-hole golf course.
Squash and tennis courts, which are built to international standards, are located on site as is a swimming pool set in well-kept gardens and overlooked by a large veranda.
In keeping with the city’s wide roads and expansive feel, Holiday Inn Bulawayo is spacious and comfortable with conference and functions rooms catering for groups of up to 300 people. A well-equipped and staffed Business Centre is put to good use by frequent business guests from neighbouring South Africa and Botswana for meetings with their counterparts from Harare.
Its 91 standard rooms, 31 business plus rooms, 31 executive rooms and 4 suites have all modern amenities including air conditioning and ensure that “great sleep”, one of the four hallmarks of the Holiday Inn brand.
Holiday Inn Bulawayo has a total of 157 rooms all superbly decorated with an elegant style. Some of the rooms overlook the parking lot and the Ascot suburb and the others overlook the beautifully manicured gardens and pool area. The twin standard rooms offer the basic accommodation experience with no extras. The suites, which are located on the 4th floor, are decorated with different colour schemes from which the guest can choose according to their preferences.
