I was in Harare, Zimbabwe, May of 2017. I stayed at YORK LODGE for 2 weeks. Two weeks of the best place I have ever stayed. (I live in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.) Their tropical landscaping made me feel at home/in Hawaii. The Family Owners and all of their staff were incredibly nice, helpful, fun to be around, and sincere.... More

A friend booked York Lodge for me, and I was very pleasantly surprised by this little place in Harare. A few bungalows put together, the lodge is serene, filled with flowers, clean and elegant. The staff are friendly and kind. Perhaps they take their lead from the proprietors, who are always around and set exemplary customer service standards. They have... More

As a frequent business traveler in Zimbabwe, I think York Lodge is by far the best place to stay in Harare. The staff are polite and the owners are very friendly. Service is top class and the food is amazing. Home from home for me.

York Lodge is one of Zimbabwe's best kept secrets. Perfectly appointed rooms, attentive, professional and friendly staff, first class food, teas and coffee on request and served with a morning wake up call. Manicured gardens, a gym, pool, excellent bar facilities, fast (free) internet and central, quiet location make this a genuine home from home. I have stayed here now... More

An oasis of peace and tranquility. The villa rooms are spacious and wonderfully, individually decorated; the gardens rival Kew. The home team are great value, professionally and socially. A ten minute stroll takes you to a great collection of outdoor souvenir markets, a bar or two and all the necessaries. It is timeless. Do not miss a dip in the... More

Stayed one night at the end of July at the lodge. Made to feel very welcome. The lodge is tucked away in lovely grounds. The team organized a great driver for us to see Harare. Room and bathroom immaculate. Would thoroughly recommend York Lodge. From the outside the big, chain hotels look unappealing and unloved - so this is s... More

This was my third trip to York Lodge in three years and my longest stay so far - 8 nights. As always, the room was wonderfully comfortable with a huge bathroom including a proper, spacious tub and a very 'full on' shower. What sets this place apart is exceptional service. Everyone is super-friendly and helpful - I had a number... More

As a frequent business traveler in Africa, I usually stay in large chain hotels. I was a bit reluctant when I was booked at the York Lodge, but all reservations dissipated upon my arrival.

Fantastic large room with a great shower, the lodge has a lovely garden and is safe secure for those that are concerned. Family run and everyone is more than happy to help. I really felt looked after here. Easy 10 minute walk in the town centre. Thanks to Richard for giving me a bond coin :)
