Harare
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I recently had lunch with my colleagues at Harvest Garden. The food is always well cooked and tastes great. However I feel it has become monotonous - that is if you have had the buffet more than once. There is need for variety and innovative menus. I would however like to commend the attentive staff at the restaurant.

The rainbow Towers lived up to expectation as one of the Best hotels in Zimbabwe with its magnificent array of amenities, spacious rooms as well as very friendly staff. The food was great although the carpet on the hall way on my floor was damp and giving that stuffy smell... Everything else though was perfect with the bar living up...

As soon as I entered the room the smell was unpleasant. The WiFi barely connected and he air conditioning was not working at all hence terrible sleep. The only thing I...

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
