When you step into the elegant foyer at Meikles, you'll know you've made the right choice. The smartly-turned out, professional and warmly welcoming staff, the smiles and efficiency, the meticulous attention to detail, the furnishings and ambience, the grand piano being quietly played to guests relaxing over coffee and cakes, tells you why Meikles continues to win the coveted title of Best City Hotel in Zimbabwe.
