My colleague and I stayed here for a work trip and we loved it. The service is fantastic, the food is delicious and the whole property is beautiful. The rooms were unique and the beds comfortable.The only suggestion I have was adding mosquito nets to the beds.

Honour bar and snacks. Very... More

Admittedly I do not have anything to compare it to in Harare, so it would be silly for me to rate this hotel as 'tge best to stay in' or anything similar. What I can say is that I don't want to look for another place to stay in Harare the next time I am there. The service is personalised... More

Set 3 course dinner. Courtesy bar in what feels like a private living room with a cosy fireplace. The Lodge sits in a quiet residential road some 10 minutes walk away from the... More

Armadale is home from home. Clean, spacious rooms; lovely pool and communal areas and great personal service. Rooms are good size, well served and with comfy beds. The decor is slightly dark/dated. The gardens are fabulous. Food was OK, and breakfasts anything we wanted. My husband likes chillis in his omlette - no problem sir! If you want a more... More

All I can say is that I don't know why I haven't discovered this gem previously! Beautifully appointed rooms, all modern conveniences once would expect anywhere, but the real... More
