Pleasant place to stay, clean facilities although a renovation of the older infrastructure is required, particularly the unreliable elevator. Having to leave the hotel to access the gym is also a big turn off.

Pleasant hotel . Strategically located in town. Assistants always available, smiling and ready to help. Very clean and smart surroundings. More can be done to improve wifi connectivity in the fourth floor.

The service i got was beyond my expectation. From the car park right to check in staff was ready at hand to assist. So far its the best service i have experienced in any hotel in Zimbabwe ..including even 5 star hotels! I highly recommend it.

This was a service par excellence....... keep up the good work. I liked the diversity in the food selection. The Hotel is located in the heart of the Mutare CBD and my business associates liked the place.

As part of our post-Sanganai 2016 tour, we visited Mutare and stopped over at African Sun Amber Hotel. It was really a brief stay for site inspection and I did wish we could spend the night there. The staff were friendly and the place was pretty nice. The room upstairs had lovely views.

Take a chance in the casino if you have a shining star. Was in one of the luxury suites restful enough to give boost of energy for the next day. Standards had gone up compared with previous visit and enquiries revealed the hotel was in preparation to rebranding under Holiday Inn and IHG group. Super WiFi ideal for business guests.
