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

The entire staff at York are friendly and approachable. The breakfasts and meals are a home-cooked treat that our whole team enjoys. Vegetarian options and dietary concerns are not a problem. The hosts are the best in the business and provide a family like atmosphere.

I enjoyed a brief but memorable visit to York Lodge. Set in a lovely garden, in a quiet street, the residence has great charm and as the occupant of one of the 'contemporary' rooms, I was very happy. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious, and a great shower, comfy bed, lovely linen and a spacious, shared verandah all contributed to... More

Stayed here on a work trip for a week. The room I stayed in was first rate - spacious, clean and well equipped (hair dryer and plug converters). Bathroom was a very good size and included a rain shower and huge bath. Very happy with the accommodation. Food was great - breakfast was perfect. Help yourself to the fruits and... More
