We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed it immensely. Rooms on the north side and the breakfast room/restaurant all look on to Unity Square which is a glorious sight in the midst of this bustling city. Our room was clean, comfortable and afforded a good night's sleep. The staff were busy with a conference during our stay... More

We checked into this hotel last year Jun 2014. Air conditioner not working. Poor breakfast. Old fashioned bathroom. Once switched on bathtub, running mud water came out. We had to wait until all mud water came out to take shower. Negative value for money. Not retuning to this hotel!

We stayed there for 3 nights and attended a wedding. Great hotel, fantastic service and staff were helpful. Situated next to a shopping mall and near the city centre which makes it a convenient location! The rooms are great and views are too!

Sadly our trip to Zimbabwe ended on a low point at Meikles. On arrival booking made for 2 nights not the expected 3 - reception staff unhelpful and advised us to sort it ourselves with our agent based in London! We managed to sort the confusion ourselves and it turned out to be Meikles fault, but then at check out... More

Service was exceptional from reception to room service to the restaurant. We stayed in the Deluxe King bedded room - the ambiance was just great...loved the room. One minor glitch..didn't get a newspaper as had been noted on check-in.

The look is stunning and the reception was amazing. Staff very courteous and amazing at check-inn. However very disappointed by the breakfast... they served cold eggs and the the food did not look apertizing at all. The shower-over-the-bath leaked water onto the floor and that is not how a five star hotel should be like.

Attended breakfast meeting in the Mirabelle room on 27 March 2015, fantastic venue for a meeting of up to 100 people. Timeless service from the Miekles team and the free wifii was an added bonus. Will definitely consider location for any function. The food was of a good standard and worth the amount paid.
