Nestled within medieval-style fortress surrounded by manicured gardens, Nesbitt Castle serves as a posh hotel and wedding venue with a quirky ambience. It was originally built in the late 19th century as a private residence for the eccentric Gothic-style aficionado Theodore Holdengarde. The interior features lavish rooms furnished with antiques, an Irish-style pub, and a dining room with wood-paneled walls. Wander through the labyrinth of passages and twisting staircases adorned with carved wooden furniture, gold-framed paintings, and other Gothic curiosities. Amenities include a billiard room and an outdoor pool. Make Nesbitt Castle a part of your Bulawayo vacation plans using our Bulawayo trip itinerary planning tool .
