Meikles opened its doors in 1915 and for almost 100 years has been acclaimed as Zimbabwe’s premier luxury hotel, its gracious charm and silver-service style reflected in membership of Leading Hotels of the World. Situated in the heart of capital city Harare, Meikles is a legendary meeting place for international business executives, dignitaries, leisure travellers and celebrities. And a note of interest – Meikles was where I started my career when I was 19 years old – and where I found not only my passion for the hospitality industry – but also the love of my life, my husband, David!
