The grounds... relaxing
The ground was beautiful! It was a great place to relax after a hard day in the office. The food on offer was good. However, to access the internet was a challenge. The staff were great.

Beautiful garden and great place to relax and visit with friends. Loved the hotel. The only down part was the slow food service and not all items on the menu were available. Staff were always friendly and ready to help.

Bronte Hotel is a fine central place to stay in Harare. Staff can't do enough for one and the food is excellent. The rooms are comfortable and very clean.Their gardens are relaxing and well tended. It's an old hotel but very well-run and has a welcoming friendly atmosphere. Prices are reasonable too. To be recommended. Mick Mc Carthy.

Grand old dame of a hotel. Well-kept gardens with private seating spaces. Friendly service; well trained staff. Food good; restaurant service a tad slow. Hotel has a gym but I preferred an early morning run in the park up the road.
