I stayed twice at the Bronte Hotel, with a few days apart. The overall setting is great: a compound of nice, tile covered low buildings with wide verandahs facing beautiful gardens,with lush vegetation, very well kept, with meandering paths that take you to the different pavilions where rooms are located. During both stays I had the same room, located not...

There is always a warm welcome to be had at the Bronte. The staff are cheerful and helpful, the garden is relaxing, the rooms comfortable and well appointed and the food is good. Such a convenient location too for a business visitor. Internet (free wi-fi) also works well now, unlike years gone by!

The colonial style buildings belie the exquisite splendor that you will find inside- the rooms are sparkling, the hotel staff great and the meals excellent. The bar offers a wide selection of drinks at reasonable prices. A shopping centre is also close by for the residents' convenience, and the CBD is just a short drive away if not within walking...

Offers much more than it appears to the passerby. Nice, clean gardens, good conference facilities, sensitive staff, wonderful dining areas and great food....This is real value for money. Location is quite good, not so much out of town but removed enough for peace, relaxation or business, whatever the type of traveller one is.

This hotel has a beautiful garden with artwork and seating arrangements. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly. Lovely breakfast that can be taken overlooking the garden. The restaurant also serves supper. As a female business person, i feel fairly safe staying at this hotel, and it can be recommended for single travellers.

I just spent a week in Harare on business and stayed at the Bronte. There is some real old world charm to be had there. The rooms were large and comfortable. The gardens were peaceful and relaxing. The Bronte has a beautiful pool and a very decent gym - much better than what you'd find at large chain hotels in...

An old colonial style hotel, quite genteel in style and approach. The rooms are very comfortable if lacking a few amenities. The gardens are lovely and a great place for meetings. When hot the hotel provides lots of shade with the verandas. The food is good but not great but it is not a country with an abundance of produce...

Quiet serene quaint hotel with neo-colonial architecture.The well manicured lush green gardens and lawns helps you retreat and unwind from the hustle and bustle of a busy day.Located within not far from the city and a shopping mall just a stone throw away makes it p[erfect for a shot business trip.Reliable wifi, friendly staff always willing to listen and assist.

The Bronte. What can one say. I've been here twice before over the last year and each time you feel so welcomed, relaxed with the fantastic staff and service, good food, amazing gardens and good rooms for a Zimbabwe hotel.
