Response from Marie-Hélène:

Glad you enjoyed. And sorry again for the electricity shortage you experienced, which is still a mystery to me!
Indeed, there is no TV (as advertised - it is not in the equipment listed); there is wifi internet however.
And the "radio" is a deco old wooden cupboard radio so indeed, it doesn't work! :-)
Thank you.

Response from Marie-Hélène:

I must say that this appreciation about the place and Bulawayo is not fair coming from a guest who barely spent 24 hours in the city. Such comments could also have been said face to face to give us a chance to answer privately. This is the first time we get such a long and frustrated feedback.
Geysers: it happens where they are not the latest models and many places - not commercial - turn on geyser only a few hours a day to save electricity. This might explain also why we are not a lodge, obviously cheaper.
Internet: is usually good, although obviously slower than in Europe! The internet was down for barely 2 hours on that day (1:30pm to 3pm), from Hillside to Suburbs, and the "cable" explanation from my provider made sense as otherwise, it is not down on such big area.
Indeed, unfortunately the weather was cold, but here is the end of winter, and we are 1400m high so that could make sense! Thatched houses are usually very nice to live in: cooler in the summer and actually warmer than outside, much nicer atmosphere than regular roofs. Having lived in Zimbabwe, one knows about thatched; if one does not like this, it is easy to see on our pictures and choose somewhere else.
To finish with, Bulawayo is a slower city, but very friendly, with nice places to visit in and around the city (Beautiful Art Gallery, best Natural History Museum of Southern Hemisphere, Railway Museum, beautiful buildings, Khami ruins, Matopos National Park, etc.). One should stay a bit longer in Bulawayo to enjoy what the city has to offer.
I can understand that having a car breakdown on the way must be frustrating and undermine the rest of the stay.
Hopefully, next time you come back to your home country, you have a better memory of it.
