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.
