Bronte Group of Hotels: Something for everyone

We stayed in the less-expensive rooms in the Queensgate Hotel across the street from the Bronte Hotel. That's just a convenient place to leave your luggage while you explore and sleep, not someplace you'd want to spend time. The rooms did include breakfast, which the kitchen is willing to prepare "to go" for those with very early flights. There's a third property, the Baines, billed as a bed and breakfast, up the street.

A lovely retreat when coming or going from the Harare airport to other parts of the country. The Bronte Hotel grounds are delightful examples of European-style buildings and gardens combined with Zimbabwean artwork, particularly stone carvings and wire sculptures.

Amanzi Lodge: Kicking Myself

Kicking myself that I didn't check this place out when I was there. Amanzi Restaurant is one of the top restaurants in Zimbabwe, and now I see they have a Lodge?? Rates from US$145 to US$180/night.

Looks beatiful, posting this here so I can remember to book there next time

The Queensgate: A cheaper alternative

I inspected the rooms at the Queensgate but decided to stay in The Bronte. The Queensgate is part of the Bronte Hotel, it's a building just across the street. The rooms were okay, clean and comfortable with en suite bathrooms.

I think the building is a renovated block of flats, not quite sure. Anyway if you stay at Queensgate it's just a short walk across the street to the bar and restaurant area of the Bronte, the facilities are shared.

Bronte Hotel: Beautiful gardens

I stayed at the Bronte for 2 nights, the gardens are very beautiful. The rooms were okay and bathrooms also okay. The bar closes at 10pm and there's no room service after that. The rate of US$96.90 includes taxes and b/fast.

They have a small business centre and I think I got done by the IT guy, I asked him about internet connection from the room, he said he'd need to set it up for me, figuring it was some complicated process I allowed him into my room where he proceeded to set up a simple dial up networking connection, which I could quite easily have done myself. I asked about the cost and he said the charge was Zim$1000, (peanuts) which I gave him. I asked about call charges and he didn't seem too sure. He walked away happy and I made a couple of connections to check email. When I got the bill I'd been charged US$37 for about 4 short phone calls

One warning about this and all hotels in Zim. Do not charge anything to your room, if you do you will be made to pay for it in US$ at the "official rate" on check out.

The official rate is currently US$1 = Zim$250 so if you you have a meal for Zim$2500 you will pay US$10 on check-out

The unofficial rate is US$1 = Zim$1100 so if you pay cash for a Zim$2500 meal you will have effectively paid US$2.30 for the meal.
