This is an average 2 to maximum 3 stars hotel that is over priced by much, shouldn't be more than $70 for a double room, but they charge $145 "with discount" for an average room with breakfast included.. (at that price should be all inclusive to compensate for the average part, but it seems Zimbabwe is more expensive than UK,...

This a great place which could however improve on the food that it serves. It is a great place if you want a quiet place to relax and unwind whilst in Harare. It is convenient for business meetings. I however felt that they could improve the quantity of the food they serve and the staff could be more friendly otherwise...

If you like faceless corporate hotels where you wake up and not know what city you're in then the Bronte is not for you. But if you want a hotel that provides outstanding service, a great atmosphere, good food and that shows you how really wonderful Zimbabwe can be then you have to stay here.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Bronte. You always feel welcome by the staff. The gardens are just stunning. An amazing pool to either lie by or swim in. The food is good with helpful and friendly waiting staff especially Knowledge who always remembered what I liked for breakfast. Highly recommended to anyone traveling to Harare....
