Wow what a gem. Absolutely perfect for the traveling business man/woman, but I would it recommend for holiday goers to. Great reception, great setting and the food is like you never left home. I would definitly return.

My first visit to York Lodge and I certainly wasn't disappointed in this family run lodge. The perfect combination of peace and hospitality, with the perfect example of a pot of tea brought to my room on arrival without even asking. Very welcome after 20 hours travelling! Dinner is a must and a great 3 course meal shared round one... More

Fabulous stay at this family run 5 star lodge. We stayed in the stunning garden rooms and 'dined in' most evenings as the food is simply fabulous. The steaks were to die for, the chicken salad lunches worth a 12 hour flight. Margot and her family and staff made us so welcome, we would have no hesitation in returning when... More

York Lodge is a beautiful lodge in a stunning garden. The family who own and run it, together with their staff, are extremely helpful and ensure that you are well looked after. Breakfast is delicious and our only regret is that we could not stay another night! We will have to return!

I have stayed at York Lodge twice this year and will continue to stay every time I am in Harare. The lodge provides a home away from home feel with very attentive staff and great home cooked meals for breakfast, dinner, lunch, and snacks. It is a great place to meet travelers both business and tourists passing through Harare. The... More

I have stayed at the York Lodge 4 times the last year and would not hesitate a second to come back. It is a small and cozy place with a wonderful garden and a relaxing ambience which is needed after a hectic day. The staff and management are extremely service minded, rooms are nice and some very nice food is... More

I visit Harare on a regular basis and have stayed at other B&Bs and hotels but this is by far the best. It is in an old house which must be close to 100 years old, well run by the family (who live next door and not on the property) The rooms are great, a superb breakfast and best of... More

Lovely garden, beautiful bedroom, cozy living room, fantastic dining area which opens out into the garden. All very picturesque, nothing out of place! Excellent breakfast with lots of fruits (blueberries, yum!), sumptuous dinner. And best of all the wonderful, very attentive and friendly owners and staff. I totally enjoyed my one week stay in this piece of paradise on earth.... More

I stay here for about 8 days while working in Harare. The property is wonderful. The service is even better. I highly recommend this property to you. The breakfasts are excellent, as is the dinner. You can even grab an adult beverage from their honor bar.
