The hotel is need of a proper revamp for it to return to its former glory as premier hotel in Harare. It is extremely disappointing that shoddy workmanship has been allowed for recent revamp. Quality of material used is shocking! The only saving grace is the excellent food,

Certainly one of the better hotels in Harare. Room was deluxe and very neat, spacious. Internet very good. Buffet dinner and breakfast was satisfactory and could be better. My bed was very hard - could not enjoy my sleep. But compared to the rest of hotels, I would stay at this hotel again
