Centrally located, well managed. Good staff, nice food. Plenty dining options. Spacious rooms. Nice park view from some rooms. Only complaints is that they are tad overpriced. Dental and shaving kits not complimentary. From an Indian perspective, they do have a few options for eating. No SuperSport7 so Indian cricket matches may not be available anywhere in the hotel.

Such bubbling enthusiasm from your nostalgic night at Meikles; thank you Barry. A pity you didn't ask a senior manager who could have happily taken you on a short tour of other interesting spots within Meikles, including a celebrity gallery behind the scenes. Although we refashioned Meikles with a US$8,5m facelift at the end of 2013 we have maintained the... More

Outstanding service, excellent facilities, I can't find anything to criticise. The food in the La Fontaine restaurant is of the highest quality and is reasonably priced. The staff are outstanding.

An excellent and highly appreciated review from the home of golf, St Andrew's UK. Yes, our Tanganda Tea Lounge (named after Zimbabwe's foremost tea estate) is a hallmark of the Meikles pedigree and the place that inspired the well-known local saying "Meet you at Meikles."
