Bulawayo Club

The Bulawayo Club, situated in the heart of historic Bulawayo, occupies one of the most imposing buildings in the city. For those who appreciate the splendour and grace of a bygone age, take time off to savour one of the great bastions of Zimbabwe’s proud and diverse history at this newly renovated boutique hotel.

About The Bulawayo Club

Built in 1935, the foundation stone was laid by the Prince George, later King George VI of Great Britain. The Bulawayo Club is a distinguished gentlemen’s club of stunning architecture offering accommodation, dining, meetings, functions, snooker, historic library and bar.

Revelling in a unique tradition and now being lavishly renovated, be taken back to a time less stressed and cynical. The classic intimacy of this remarkable establishment will ensure that you will return time and time again.

While The Bulawayo Club has been lovingly renovated, much of the original furniture, fittings and early colonial artwork remains. Visitors will be walking in the steps of the giants, both illustrious and notorious, of southern African history.


Bulawayo Club AccomodationOn the second floor, the Club’s fifteen rooms have been brought into the 21st Century with décor and fabrics which complement the dignified surroundings. The rooms are light and welcoming, with the high ceilings, big windows and Oregon pine floors fashionable in a bygone era.

Standard rooms have either queen beds or twin double beds, overhead fans and ensuite bathrooms. Each room is unique, some with balconies overlooking Bulawayo’s streetlife, some courtyard-facing.

Two suites provide an adjoining lounge with satellite TV. On the same floor our Residents Lounge and balcony provides the convenience of a mini-bar, tea and coffee station and satellite TV.
