I have been at Bronte before, some years ago. I have to say, it has improved a lot. Accomodation is not particularly luxurios, but they have air conditioners in the rooms and a good wifi conection. Personal is doing a great job. From the receptionists, to house keeping and to the waiters, all of them gave a most efficient and... More

Just amazing, this lovely Garden Hotel survived all the Troubles, just a beautiful garden to chill and relax. Sitting in the garden, having your tea or Coffee with cake, you will enjoy and love it. Family Hotel with dedicated service.

There are two restaurants and a bar with a wood-burning fireplace to warm up at on a chilly winter evening. Breakfast is included and... More

The Bronte is a great hotel with comfortable rooms and beautiful grounds. It is located near downtown Harare. They have a nice restaurant for breakfast,which is included in the room price. They have had a great sounding restaurant for lunch and dinner, though we did not try it. There is some off-street parking available.

There is no better place for working outdoors in an amazing garden, where (if you are a regular to Harare) you will no doubt run into people you know. Breakfast is quickly served, unless you hit the rush hour, and offers tasty (if not low fat) options. After my last review (November 2012), wherein I mentioned the rooms needed upgrading,... More

The Bronte is a really lovely hotel - I wish I'd known about it on previous trips to Harare. It's incredibly peaceful, with beautiful gardens fully of Shona sculptures, all sorts of birds, etc. Service is faultless, food good, especially in Emmanuel's; all in all highly recommended.

We stayed there as a family, it had ok rooms with very old furniture and the rooms look tired. They save very delicious breakfast, we really enjoyed their food which was always fresh. They have lovely gardens my kids liked their swimming pool. Centrally located which was so accessible. Going back there soon but as a couple this time!

The Bronte is an oasis of quiet and restful excellence in the midst of a city in decline. Rooms spotless, comfortable and quiet. Staff courteous, pleasant, helpful and efficient. It's not cheap but they do deliver on quality and I really I enjoyed my 5 nights there.
