Says Brian Nyakutombwa, general manager: “I’m pleased to say that not even the harsh economic climate has impacted on our consistent quality service, and Cresta Churchill continues to be recognised as one of the finest hotels in Bulawayo.
“A great deal of the hotel’s success may be attributed to management’s commitment to upholding the standards we have so zealously worked towards over the past four decades. Our team ‘s focus has always been our commitment to ensuring that our guests’ experience of the Churchill is superlative in every way.”
Brian believes the peaceful, quiet surrounds also have much to do with the timeless quality which envelopes the hotel so many years on. “Situated 6 km or 10 minutes from the city centre of Bulawayo, the hotel is removed from the hustle and bustle of the capital which means our guests can enjoy the tranquility of the hotel. Once again immersing them in an experience reminiscent of yesteryear.”
The hotel offers 50 beautifully appointed bedrooms, all equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, satellite TV, telephone, radio, and a limited room service, as well as a complimentary morning newspaper. There is also Wi-Fi connectivity to ensure guests stay connected and in touch whilst travelling.
The famous Inglenbrook Restaurant serves continental and full English breakfasts, as well as a la carte or set lunch and dinner menus. A list of fine wines makes dining an occasion to remember. Snacks and light meals are served in the courtyard garden and pool area, while the public and secluded cocktail bars are open until late. Guests can refresh themselves in the sparkling pool before enjoying a drink at the cocktail bar. Cresta Churchill offers excellent conference facilities with the latest in audio-visual and tele-conferencing facilities.
There is also a complimentary shuttle bus service for transporting delegates, as well as airport transfers. Free on-site parking, as well as secretarial services are offered.
