“Guest House Perfection”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Kingsmead Guest House is the ultimate guest house experience. Having stayed in a few places, I am so glad I found it! Its modern with all the world class finishings, its clean and extremely welcoming. I had the pleasure of staying a week for business and what a pleasure it was! The rooms are well designed to take into consideration everything one would need from fridges, heated towel rails, little chocolates on your pillow, comfortable beds and linen, the right amenities, dstv, tea and coffee and great spacing. It was also a treat to come home every day to snacks waiting ready for me to relax. Breakfast was a treat every morning and cooked to perfection as well as fresh and healthy. The hosts and staff are outstanding and pay attention to your every need without being invasive, it becomes home! See you next time and keep up the great work.

Kings mead is an exceptional Guesthouse, the attention to detail that has gone into this new build property means everything is on hand for the convenience of the business traveller and tourist alike. It really felt like home from home during my stay and the staff were friendly, attentive and professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending it for the businessman using it as a base of operations whilst in Harare or for a tourist staying or transiting through. I must also commend their chef, as he was always on hand to prepare home cooked food which was tasty, well prepared and filling. A great place to stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are brand new so any of them are as good as each other, well planned and laid out

Kingsmead Guesthouse will exceed your expectations - modern, warm and inviting surrounds; exceptional staff who will go to any length to ensure every request is met.
I stayed at Kingsmead for 3 weeks for a mix or work and leisure - Kingsmead is an excellent base to conduct business due to its proximity to the Village, meeting rooms, excellent wifi and privacy when required.
I appreciated the warmth and friendly atmosphere. The team accommodated last minute requests, preempted many of my needs and made me feel like I was at home.
I highly recommend Kingsmead Guesthouse for work, leisure, individuals, couples or families!

In June I had the pleasure to stay a few nights in this newly opened guesthouse. It was a very pleasant surprise as the owners are very caring for their guests and help you in any way possible. The place per se is nice and specious and the breakfast included everything you could wish for. I can recommend this place and I will be back there on my next trip to Harare.

Personal service like you've never had anywhere before. The rooms are beautifully fitted and decorated. Towel warmers in the bathroom put a smile on my face. The dinning room is modern with a good dose of home goodness.

I have been at Kingsmead now for 3 weeks and keen to stay forever, but miss my family in Perth. Brand new modern/contemporary style Lodge with amazingly spacious and well appointed rooms with superb bathrooms. Full DSTV service, excellent internet and the food is comparable to some of the best restaurants in Harare. Beautiful common areas with fire places, a great bar and dining room with a huge selection of well priced drinks. Private dining room/meeting room available free, and a very secure and tranquil environment, not far from Sam Levy Village. The hosts/owners are very welcoming yet not intrusive. The perfect home away from home, for long or short stays.
You will not be dissapointed, and even better than the web site portrays. 5+Stars.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, with also a 2 bedroom family suite available with dining and kitchenette.
