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.

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 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
