We were staying nearby (the Bronte was second on our list of hotels which was down to our budget) and had dinner here on a couple of occasions with family and friends. All the meals were well cooked and there is a good variety of choice, although there is nothing particularly fancy being offered. Between us we tried quite a few different meals and you couldn't complain about anything. The portions are a good size and priced very reasonably. Service was, in the main, very good. If you are looking for somewhere to have a meal in nice surroundings, this is well worth considering.
From what else we saw of the hotel and the delightful grounds, I can imagine it would be a very nice place to stay as well.

I have visited with my girlfriend many different hotels in Zim and quite few in Harare but I have to say that Bronte is our favorite. Around Bronte is not advisable to walk during the night and therefore we have contacted a nice and friendly taxi driver, Nick, who has driven us throughout entire Harare upon very good bargaining (+263772627976).

Room Tip: Take a room towards the garden cos it is fresher

Rooms were spotlessly clean but neither of the deluxe rooms I stayed in had air con or mini fridge. There was a ceiling fan which was sufficient for me but a mini fridge would have made the stay perfect. If the expense of installing fridges in each room is beyond the hotel, then a communal ice machine and ice buckets in each room would suffice.
The gardens are amazing with a huge variety of bird life but the sun loungers around the pool need updating.
Breakfast was reasonable but because this hotel is mainly used by business people, you need to attend early or expect slim pickings! The scones (or biscuits) are particularly nice.
Reception staff were friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff were amazing, coming back later if I needed a lie in.
Listed as 4 * but expect the equivalent of a 3 star by UK standards...still, it's the nicest hotel you'll find in Harare.

Room Tip: I stayed in two rooms..Room 24 on the ground floor was nice (at the back of hotel) but the 2nd room I stayed in (upstairs) smelt of damp and faced the courtyard where you could hear the bullfrogs and chatter from the bar. This was a corner room and I think the guttering had failed. Ask to see the room before you check in, I'm sure they'll be happy to oblige.

This hotel was a great place to be while working and resting in Zimbabwe. The peaceful gardens and swimming pool area were the perfect place to relax and finish off any outstanding work. The bar proved to be an entertaining place to watch the Premiership matches of the day and the staff couldn't do enough to help. Food was solid too, particularly the steak and 'granny's hotpot of the day'. The only slight criticism was the internet access, which was a tad patchy, as it is in Zim as a whole.

I was with a group, and we were well accommodated for. Food, beds, rooms and service were great, and would recommend this hotel to anyone. The people looking after you are charming and very helpful. The only downside was booking online required forwarding a copy of your credit card if you are booking for someone else.

Room Tip: Always go up one grade if you can
