Armadale House is an old farmhouse which was converted into a Hotel with a Restaurant. There is a bin Garden with Pool and the rooms are spacious. The staff is very friendly and on request, a driver can organized. Very nice place to stay in Harare.

Stayed one night there this month after long hard travel. Could not say enough how friendly and warm staff was. The room was quiet, clean and inviting. The grounds were impeccable, decorations and settings thoughtfully designed to reflect African cultures. Food was great, and I would have absolutely no hesitations in returning. You won't go wrong here. Travel would be... More

We spent one night at the Armadale Lodge in Harare after 10 nights in safari camps. It was a wonderful place to reorient oneself to the "real" world! Formerly a farm house, the lodge has all the amenities but still retains its authentic character. The rooms all seem to be different in character and in their configuration. We had one... More

Since it's a boutique hotel each room is different in size and feel. Our main room had the bed and a small dining table, and we had a full kitchen, and a bathroom. As comfortable as that was the real beauty is the farmhouse. Many rooms, all open and inviting. The full breakfast was wonderful. They will prepare lunch and... More

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

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.
