Arrived in Harare mid August having booked for $70 a night in what we thought was the Bronte Hotel. Upon arrival we were told that we would in fact be staying in Baines. Our disappointment was delayed as we arrived close to midnight after a long journey. Our rooms were both very basic, one carpeted the other not, our room...

A brief stay on a work trip. Not particularly impressed on any front: the hotel seemed 'tired' and pretty basic, the rates are not cheap, bedding was not fitted properly, bed itself not particularly comfortable, and breakfast was mediocre. The service, food and ambience at the nearby sister establishment - 'Bronte' - was in a different league all together.

The rooms are clean with friendly reception, cleaning staff and guards. It is also close to a shopping centre convenient to get lunch and dinner. However my security box was jammed on Saturday evening with my important tickets and money inside. The reception staff alerted the manager but he only came to open it on Sunday at around 1500hrs imagine!!...

This is a hotel. (Not a B&B) The rooms were clean and safe with flat screen TV and a kettle (useful because there was no hot water the first night we stayed there) The breakfast was a good all you can eat buffet There was no evening meal but the hotel is across the road from the Bronte (who own...

Very nice place to stay. Rooms are basic, but very clean. Nice bathroom with bath and shower. They have TVs in the rooms, with a few DSTV channels. I would recommend the rooms away from the road (a bit noisy) They have free WiFi, and you collect a voucher at reception. There is no bar or restaurant (only breakfast) on...

For the price-$70 per night- the accomodation is ceratinly not value for money. Starting with small rooms,stained linen, an absolutely lousy breakfast this place was a disappointment. U can't even make ur own coffee or tea in the room. No facilities are provided. The TV doesn't work. We moved out as soon as possible. Harare has many B& B lodges...

I have now stayed twice at the Baines Bed and Breakfast and would certainly go there again. It is an excellent place to stay if all you really want is a bed for the night. It is indeed a bed and breakfast and does not offer other things you might get at a hotel but i think the rooms are...

This is a basic but decent bed and breakfast in a central location in Harare. The rooms are somewhat worn, but they're tidy, clean and comfortable - as are the bathrooms. The rooms have an in-room safe, and TV, which also has UK Sky TV news. The staff are very, very friendly, and helpful and the breakfast served is again...

“Ask for a room at the back of the building - those at the front are next to a busy road. I understand there are some larger triple bedrooms at the top of the building, too - I didn't see one, but I overheard a man asking for one at reception but was told they were taken.”
