Chimanimani Hotel Melsetter - May 2009
11/11/09 Greetings from the Land of the Long White Cloud....
I was chuffed to see the photos of (was Chimanimani Arms back in '53) in your album. My dad was the first manager of the newly built hotel replacing the old Melsetter Hotel at the same location. I worked at the hotel running the front office.
May I ask if the hotel has been reopened? assuming it has been closed!! I've not seen anything on the net for the last few years suggesting it was open and running.
But lovely to see the pics!!
My parents and I left Rhodesia late '53 and went to South Africa... and migrated here to NZ in '63. Been here ever since... still miss Rhodesia... always will
