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.

have always stayed in meikles when in Harare. Meikles is tired, although I've heard that meikles has started renovating some of its rooms. York lodge is much better option in a residential neighbourhood just near the city center. Friendly staff, who responded promptly on email. Will stay there again next time I visit.

Such a fantastic place to stay. Lovely rooms. Great garden. Lovely staff. I am gluten intolerant and they had bought bread and grains for. Can it be better? They do have a gym, a very small one and not the most modern, but it worked perfectly. Biking and rowing with a lovely view over the pool and garden. I will... More

Very large, comfortable, clean rooms. Super friendly, helpful staff. Green, lush surroundings. All makes for the perfect place to stay in Harare. I have stayed at York Lodge a number of times and will always return, no question.

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
