I stayed at Armadale for a few weeks and really enjoyed the kindness and hospitality of staff who treat you both as an honoured guest and family (not sure how they manage both!). Breakfasts are cooked to order and taken either in your room/cottage or in the warm and welcoming dining room. Dinner is also available with some limited but... More

The grounds are very attractive all the guest areas were furnished with style and nostalgia-- loved the library with maps and memorabilia. Log fire lit in the evening .... nothing was... More

The Armadale Lodge was one of the best places to stay on my vacation. It became a home away from home. The staff cared for all of my needs. They anticipated any circumstance that could arise and ensured that my stay with them was a magnificent journey of beauty and peace. The lodge was beautifully furnished with style and grace.... More

Firstly I believe it is the warm welcome, hospitality and attention to detail throughout your stay that makes this place so great. It's a small charming 'tight knit' accommodation, one in which you could feel uncomfortable if staffing didn't make you feel 100% at home. They really went the extra step I feel. Thoroughly recommend it/

This is a truly amazing place to stay if you are in Harare. Spent many weeks here and was like a second home. The service is personal and first class. Staff are caring and helpful at all times. Nice and quiet, discreet, beautiful gardens and if you have work to do you're guaranteed peace and privacy. Internet connectivity is also... More

Beautifully furnished, lovely setting, large secluded gardens , super pool. Individually furnished rooms all quirky and interesting. Staff and management are lovely, nothing is too much trouble. As a business traveller I find this a delightful and restful place to stay. A bit pricey but nevertheless I keep going back and always enjoy my stay.

Due to some flight delays, we ended up having to overnight in Harare and the fantastic team at African Safari Consultants arranged the Armadale. We didn't know what to expect, but it was a fantastic stay. We got there late, but the staff was very welcoming and we were able to have a nice glass of wine by the pool.... More

This is a wonderful little place to stay if you are in Harare , it is close to every thing, including Town. The city centre is run down and dilapidated unfortunately, especially if you know Harare from the past! Armadale has a great location and pretty setting. Meals are very average, however adequate, Breakfast could be far better! If you... More

The staff and management are amazing. They are extremely accommodating to guests requests. The atmosphere is friendly and everyone is greated by name. It is definitely one of the better establishments in Harare however the cost is a bit cheeky.

My husband and I had to switch guesthouses after 3 nights in Harare to the Armadale. What a pleasant experience. The house had a lot of character, the staff was extremely helpful and nice and the dinner was the best food we had while in Harare. The free laundry service was a great bonus after traveling for a couple of... More
