Horrible is an understatement. No concept of service or consideration for any guests. Air conditioner perpetually not working. Poor breakfast. Old fashioned bathrooms. Poor or no response to queries. Negative value for money. But I guess due to lack of competition this place still works. Rather stay in a lodge the next time.

I am a local and well aware of the challenges presented in running a business in this country, albeit things have improved over the last four years or so. I am also fairly well travelled and have stayed in all manner of accommodation over the years, from beach huts in Tulum to the George V in Paris, so I accept... More

I had the most wonderful meal at the hotel recently. The appetiser of cold tomato consomme and starter of mackeral with beetroot foam were exquisite! The main of roast beef with gnocchi was wonderful, and I finished the meal with a delectable chocolate mousse. It was fine dining with an ambiance of luxury, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Hospitality and service in Meikles is great. I like the breakfast and also room service. Visited in Feb, 2014 and again going there next week. Close to government agencies, so easy access. I recommend my colleagues to choose Meikles.

This is clearly one of the best (if not the best) hotel in Harare. Rooms are spacious and clean, all facilities are top notch. The roof top pool adds a bit of class to this already class hotel. The food in the La Fontain restaurant is delicious: I had a steak that was almost intimidating by its size, and every... More

Having first stayed here several years ago I was pleasantly surprised to find that the place has been refurbished, the room was excellent with good facilities and the staff members I dealt with were genuinely friendly and helpful. Will stay here again next time I am in Harare.

Dear Pete. Thank you for your very positive review that includes, as 99.9% always do, a comment on our friendly staff. However, I am delighted that you carefully chose to insert the word "genuine" because open friendliness is, indeed, at the very heart of the culture our local people wherever you go. They don't need to be specially trained inside... More

I stayed at the Meikles a couple of times while on business in December. The rooms are certainly a good size, very clean and the staff are very friendly. Internet worked fine, not super-fast but certainly good enough for general use. My only recommendation would be for the hotel to include at least a small bottle of water in the... More
