Nice hotel but the room service food is not the best. The breakfast service at the Pavilion restaurant is very slow. Tables are not cleared and prepared quick enough for the next guest. Stained table cloths are left on the table and you have to ask for cutlery most of the time. The waiters don't take an initiative to provide...

Pleasant staff, very attentive and helpful. The only issue I had was that I had booked for 2 nights but the system said booking for 1 night.We clarified this by showing the staff my booking receipt as proof which was annoying but it was rectified.Breakfast was good variety of foods, otherwise pleasant stay 🙂

If you are looking for a close to an upmarket hotel - this would be it. Big hotel, nice ambience, clean, good restaurants, comfortable rooms. It has got a history, so you will find some interesting details and items echoing back to the Rhodesian times. Once you are in - you are out of local realities for a moment. Very...

I have often been asked why I come back to the Meikles. Many of my colleagues stay at a B&B instead. I stay in the new part of the hotel, find everything convenient, easy transport and anything else I need. Check in and check out was a bit of a challenge this time. The staff seemed young and inexperienced, which...
