This is a fabulous hotel located at the heart of Harare. Bags of character and colonial touches that combine effortlessly with outstanding service. I stayed for one night on two separate occasions in June 2016. Both stays were impeccable in every respect. The offer provides airport transfers and I recommend that guests book before arrival.

The Meikles is by far the best you going to get in Harare. Even though rated 5 star it is a 3 in my opinion. The staff are friendly and helpful. More could be done to keep the lobbies and rooms clean though. The carpets need proper vacuuming. The bathrooms definitely need to be upgraded. We enjoyed dinner at the... More

This is my second time staying at the Meikles and it doesn't disappoint. It is an old fashioned, charming and very historic hotel with very good amenities. The standard suites are of good size and very comfortable. The dining facilities are a little limited and the food is expensive but that is pretty much everywhere in Harare these days. The... More

We stayed at Meikles for a romantic wedding anniversary celebration. Our room was set up beautifully - flowers, complimentary champagne, snack basket etc... We also enjoyed a fantastic couples massage (included in the package). Dinner at La Fontaine was delicious but my favourite part is always the live music on piano!! We even danced...
