10/10 Exceptional

An excellent place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, relaxed environment which is not too far from the city.

8/10 Very good

Spacious and clean, very quiet. I liked the old man who welcomed me and took me to my room, he was very nice and checkout he did the same. Food was nicely prepared but there was little variety- e.g. no chicken sausages at breakfast,

6/10 Good

Check-in desk was chaos and it seemed this led to my check-in not getting fully complete or something as I had a staffer and another guest try to open my room door at 11pm at night and wake me up as I had bolted the door. Then as I was trying to get back to sleep, the front desk called me to confirm who was in the room as they clearly had no idea. That plus a loud dance party that went on until 10:30pm ensured there wasn't a restful nights sleep. The lack of proper check-in also explained why my wifi login with my room details wouldn't work. Security on the rooms felt a bit sub-par. The balcony door lock was not the best and seemed loose. The room door at least had a bolt (which worked as I discovered). The restaurant staff were nice but then we had issues trying to pay as they didn't want to take some of the US dollar bills that our party had claiming they couldn't accept those serial numbers or something. This is utterly baffling as the bills were valid US dollars and even on researching the Bank of Zimbabwe has an issued statement saying businesses shouldn't be refusing certain bills because they're too old or whatever. This ended up in lots of chaos trying to pay our bill when the card machine wouldn't work in the restaurant area as the signal from the front desk (where the router is) was not strong enough. Overall, wouldn't really recommend unless you lacked other places to stay in Harare.
