This place is terrible! The river front setting is lovely, but that's about it. The rooms are not great, and the food extremely average. As two young women travelling together, we found the staffs' 'friendliness' bordering on inapropriate. Be warned - the prices here are extortionate. US$40 for a bottle of wine! Which is more than double the price at Ilala Lodge, a FAR more classy establishment. When querying this, the manager gave a very long winded story about import duty etc, etc, but the prices for local Zim wine (US$20) were also more than twice that at Ilala. All in all a horrible experience, and surely not a place the Mercure hotel group would be proud to have next to it's name.
