Belingwe Hotel

Belingwe

The history of Belingwe Hotel is a little scattered. It goes back to the days of the Matabele Rebellion when miners were called to arms.

It appears that it may have been run at some point by Meikles (Pvt) Ltd as a hotel and in store.

Due to the Great Depression conditions in Rhodesia, he sold the business back to Lennon Ltd in 1931.
