I can honestly say that this was THE NICEST B&B I've ever stayed at. I highly recommend it. -Beautiful estate -Friendly staff -Delicious... More

I recently spent four nights at Wavell Lodge in Harare. Inside it's high walls lies a veritable paradise. Rolling lawns in a vast and beautiful garden filled with indigenous trees, the unusual buildings of the lodge itself and a spectacular swimming pool. The service is like something out of another era and the rooms are deeply luxurious. Food is fresh... More

8 of us stayed for 1 week to attend an international convention of JW's at The national sports stadium with 82,409 attending. The Wavell House was a wonderful place to stay. The care and attention to our needs was outstanding. We would highly recommend this jewel of a place to stay.

Thank you so much for your review. It was our pleasure to meet and host such a wonderful group of guests. We were initially concerned we would not be able to cope with such a full house of JW delegates, who booked for over a week with Wavell House. But the organisation of the convention and the way your local... More

We were booked into the guest house by our company in Harare as it is close by. As a rule I dont like guest houses / B&Bs as they are often nothing more than a converted garge or granny flat. Whata pleasant surprise it was, large well appointed rooms, lovely garden and helpful staff. We did not make arrangements for... More
