The rooms were really good but they should consider removing the carpeting as it is heavy with dust. The beds are comfortable, food excellent. The restaurant and conference staff were excellent. However, in trying ti insist on certain standards of excellence, they often intruded into people's privacy- noticed a few younger residents being chased away with food they had bought,... More

I always stay at this hotel every time I visit Zimbabwe. They have tried their best to maintain it to a good standard despite the economic meltdown being faced in Zim. The older rooms in the south side I think are a nightmare! 3 star at most! The rooms and bathrooms are so tired looking compared to the newer ones.... More

Probably one of the best place to stay in Harare. The staffs are great and rooms are cozy. Although the north block gets a bit cold during the evening. There are a number of restaurants variety of food will be a thumps down. Probably the management can think of a asian resturant or have some selection on the menu. All... More

Conveniently located in the Centre this Hotel offers plenty of rooms in several wings. Breakfast was decent and the overall experience good.

I have stayed in Meikles a lot of times in the past. This hotel is considered one of the finest in Africa. And it was! A really 5 stars’ hotel. But this place changes a lot from the days off old. Buffet isn’t value for money. Breakfast is bad for a luxury hotel. Very poorly maintained rooms. The main restaurant... More

Stayed in this hotel for 14 happy nights. This could be taken a 5 star hotel in any country of the world. The bedrooms are superb, en suites excellent and the service is exquisite from the housekeeping, concierge, reception and waiting staff through to management. Nothing is a problem

This hotel was supposed to be No 1 in Africa. It is still No 1 in Harare. But what does it mean? Nothing at all. You've got a restaurant on the first floor, if you are lucky you get a descent meal, the bar upstairs and downstairs are open and nice. But teatime coffee or else we used to have?... More

Whilst understandably expensive ( charging everything in USD ) this is a very good hotel with a good location in the city. Wifi works well , rooms are spacious and the hotel area is clean and tidy with 2 nice restaurants and a decent cocktail bar. Staff try very hard to please and there is a decent work ethic here...
