Harare
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This hotel has a good location near to Harare but not in the City Center. There are pleasant and wooded gardens. Rooms are quiet. However they did not have our group reservation when we arrived and did not handle the booking in process well. But otherwise food, service and accommodation were good and I would recommend this to anyone visiting...

Decent place, decent food, good location. Staff is very keen to assist. Bar has limited operation hours though. The shower drainage however needs to be attended to, some of the TV channels were blurry. On a busy day one of the chefs at breakfast struggled to make eggs for a large number of people

Overally excellent service and hospitality, rooms were clean and the staff friendly and helpful at all times. Special mention goes to the Hotel Manager on the day (03.04.17) and the ladies in the front office, and the gentleman in the Restaurant.

Serene environs. Beautiful location and the gardens are well maintained. The reception staff was exceptional especially on check in. The bars are friendly. I feel safe with my vehicle because of the security.

The place is a bit away from the city centre and located in peaceful environments. It has a lot greenery all around with lush green lawns and big trees. The ambience, service and food is good too. The security is tight as well. Recommended to one and all.

I arranged a conference at the Cresta for three different groups ranging from 65 people to 130 people over the course of a week and the Cresta did an excellent job coordinating serving and arranging for all of my specific needs. I felt that I always had technical, administrative, and logistics support when needed. Therates were reasonable and service excellent....
