We booked for one night here, we booked for a twin private ensuite room. When we arrived, we were told by the receptionist in unapologetic manner that there is only a double private ensuite room available as the other one has been taken. We go into the room. The room is tiny. There is no mosquito net and the toilet is awful. There is hair all around it and the shower looks like it hadn’t been cleaned for awhile. My friend and I decided to not stay there in the end, and the receptionist is attitude to us All

Resort-style accommodation centred around a British heritage house in an up-market suburb of Harare: quiet, secure and settled amongst beautiful vegetation. Walkable from city in 25min just up Prince Edward Road. Shopping centre 5min walk away (pick/pay). The staff is excellent, they pay individual attention to each guest and go out of their way to make you feel at home: kitchen, bar, pool, secluded areas even grass to pitch your own tent. You may relax in the historic colonial rooms.
