Five of us enjoyed a memorable stay at York Lodge in October. Lovely spacious rooms combining comfort, taste and convenience. Friendly enthusiastic management plus wonderful staff for whom nothing is too much trouble make this a home away from home. Food is great - served inside or on the patio. Don't miss Martha's cookies! All this set in beautiful lush... More

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the staff at York Lodge for a fantastic stay recently. I was made to feel at home right away - making the room available early on in the day, and the coffee & biscuits were definitely welcome after a long journey! The lodge is beautiful, the rooms are large and incredibly... More

I recently stayed at York Lodge after a great recommendation from a friend of mine & was blown away by the beautiful gardens, the personal first class service & the great surroundings. From the moment I arrived, being warmly greeted by the owner & taken in by the beautiful garden I immediately felt at home. There is even a very... More

My husband had stayed here whilst working inMay and kept on saying how well he had been treated during his stay. He was not wrong. The group of colleagues arrived from the airport, picked up of course by... More

I love returning to York Lodge on my annual visit en route to Mana Pools. Nothing is too much trouble - from the moment you arrive (airport pick arranged by YL of course) and a cup of tea arrives, to the point of departure, with that cuppa delivered to teh room at 5 am, complete with a home-made biscuit to...

I recently had to stay over in Harare and was booked into York Lodge. From the minute we arrived we were warmly greeted and taking in the beautiful garden and rooms I felt at home. I can recommend York Lodge and will make it my first choice on all future trips to Harare. Neil Magnuson

I had reason to recently spend three nights in Harare as part of a business trip. I booked York Lodge on the advice of a local contact and it proved to be an excellent choice. Rooms are spacious, airy and clean. The lodge is quite traditional in style, with all rooms in single storey 'bungalows' and having direct access to... More

I cannot recommend York Lodge highly enough! The rooms are beautiful and it is truly an oasis. The staff is lovely and the food is excellent (especially for accommodating various dietary restrictions like vegetarians!). For business travelers the internet connection is great and there is access to printers/computers. My only hesitation in giving such a stellar recommendation is that I... More

Truly excellent choice for Harare. Large clean room and bathroom. Food prepared to suit dietary issues; just let the cook know what you can / cannot eat. Stayed for 6 nights. Would highly recommend to all.

This is a beautiful place to spend your time while in Harare. Margo and Les have put together one of the best Lodges I have ever been to. Their attention to detail, beautiful landscaping, delicious food comes with a home away from home feel. I definitely recommend a stay at York Lodge. I have stayed there for the past few... More
