I come to Harare and stay in Meikles several times in a year. In the past two years I have seen the maintenance of the hotel go down severely just as the prices, particularly of food, have shot up. In the past two visits I have regularly seen cockroaches in the bathroom and the bed room. It seems it is a policy not to replace fused bulbs unless the customers ask for it. Toilet seats have not been replaced for years and you will often see that the rubber padding underneath has worn away so that the seat rests only on iron screws. The gym has two tread mills and one of them has needed repairs for at least two years that I have been coming. All in all a poor value for money. I wish there were alternatives to staying in Meikles.
