Our 2nd stay at the Meikles. Having stayed in Victoria falls for a week we stayed here for one night on our way home. It is a lovely hotel and well situated for the business district - shame our room looked out onto the huge corporation building that my husband works for - no getting away from work. Not the best looking hotel from outside but it still has a lot of charm inside. Our room was lovely and had an Edwardian feel - bathroom clean - water a bit yellow. The public areas are all spotless. We had a lovely evening meal - excellent service and food. Breakfast was also very good. The hotel has changed over the years - it still has some elegant touches but it was lacking in atmosphere. I think the mix of business and short stays makes it more busy and efficient rather than relaxing holiday but that's how it came across to me. it still is a good hotel and worth staying at. We crossed the road to get some last minute gifts and found some great serpentine stone carvings and negotiated a very good price!
