We have finally found THE place to stay when in Harare. Great location when coming from the airport, clean and spacious rooms and very friendly staff. The buffet of the main restaurant is not overwhelming. An all-day great little food/snack counter next to the terrace.

Stay was ok locating is great and very private as well. For the price you pay I guess it's worth it as well. There's not much I can really say because we checked in really late after midnight and checked out early.

Over 80 people met with visitors from the UK. Meeting room was spacious and comfortable. Dinner on the outside deck was elegant, if cold. Buffet was not memorable but tasty enough. The well lit thorn tree garden adds to the ambience, even at night
