Consistently voted as one of the best hotels in Zimbabwe Meikles Hotel has a rich pedigree of distinction.

Since 1992 Meikles Hotel has won the prestigious Association of Zimbabwe Travel Agents (AZTA) award for Best City Hotel in Zimbabwe – that’s an astonishing 20 years! There has been no other challenger as there were no awards in 2004 and 2005.

This benchmark of excellence over nearly a century is enshrined in being a proud member of The Leading Hotels of the World, a prestigious organisation which represents the world’s blue-chip hotels. In 1995 Meikles was the first (and still only the second) to be honoured with an invitation that to this day acknowledges world-class stature.


Since opening in 1915 Meikles has also won numerous other international and local honours, including:

  •  Ninth Best Hotel in Africa &The Middle East (early 2000s), by The Daily Telegraph, London.
  • Travel & Leisure has on several occasions, rated Meikles as one of the top three hotels in Africa.
  • La Fontaine restaurant has twice won “best deluxe restaurant” and “best restaurant overall” in the Zimbabwe “On-a-Plate” competition.
  • 1993 - British Executive Travel Awards, Hotel of the Year (winner)
  • 1995 - International Executive Travel Awards, Best Hotel in Africa (winner)
