“Disappointed Holiday Inn fan”
Reviewed March 27, 2007

Stayed at Holiday Inn, twice last year, in April and again in September, while touring the Southern Africa Region. Both times were very disappointing!
Our stay in April 2006 we had to change rooms because the toilet was leaking, the bathroom was flooded.

Come September 2006, I was even more disgusted, the bedding had blood stains that anyone could not miss noticing. I concluded that this was deliberately left in this state by the house-keeping staff hoping it wasnt going to be noticed, because it was a bed-spread/throw-over, I wonder how long had it been left like that. We requested all our bedding to be changed, no apology received.......charming! Isnt the bedding supposed to be changed every time the guests checks-out?

Having stayed at Holiday Inn, Lusaka and PiertersburgSA , the difference is very noticable, even the quality of toilet paper at Holiday Inn, Harare will give you sneezies....poor quality!...very dusty!

The standards have gone down compared to my last stay in 2000.

The staff are stll very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here with the Mrs during our time in Zim last year and it was a nice place to stay. The hotel looks particularly nice at night with the Silver Spur steakhouse downstairs. They do make some mean steak! Friendly and helpful staff. Recommended.
