I have stayed a number of times at Woodlands and nothing seems to be too much trouble for Dave and his staff. The rooms are really comfortable and the breakfast is full and hearty. The garden setting is really tranquil and you have to be reminded that you aren't in the country.

Stayed here whilst on a business trip. Lovely accommodation in a quiet part of the suburbs, convenient for shopping and most routes. Travelling on my own for business, this was a secure and relaxing accommodation at the end of busy days out and about, Generous sized cottages with a small veranda from which to enjoy the attractive garden and listen...

Woodlands is a lovely place to stay. The atmosphere is very calm and relaxing - water features outside all the rooms and a lovely pool and pond in the back yard with lovely gardens to wander through or read in. The breakfast is very good with custom-order hot plates and a spread of fruit. I had dinner at the hotel... More

I absolutely loved my stay at the Woodlands. David and his family could not be more welcoming or helpful. The breakfast is great, the rooms are well-appointed and homey, and the staff kind. You will not find a more tranquil or hospitable place to stay in Harare.

Lovely people, lovely food, overall an amazing place to stay. I stayed for a week while on a work trip and I highly recommend it. It's in a quiet location but is still walking distance from shops. Good wifi, swimming pool and gym facilities in a very picturesque setting. Lasagna on Sundays was perfect

This guesthouse has a real feeling of peace and tranquility and the owner family make a point of really giving personal good service. Good food, clean and neat rooms with friendly staff and security. Home cooked dinners are not included in rate but are well worth staying "home" for.

Can’t speak too highly of Woodlands. You stay in comfortable, well appointed semi-detached bungalows spaced down the drive and walk up to eat in the main house. Everything is spotlessly clean, and there is a daily laundry service. Supper is available from Monday to Thursday if you order by 5 pm; there’s a little leeway if you forget or other... More

Woodlands Lodge has been established by a Zimbabwean couple in a leafy, tranquil, and very safe location in Borrowdale not far from the CBD and near a very good shopping centre. It is a quiet oasis with several bungalows, well spaced from each other, and arranged in proximity to a central building which encompasses the reception, gym and dining room.... More
