We stayed at Armadale Boutique Lodge for one night (last day of a 3 week journey) and it was perfect; the rooms and the lodge are very nice decorated and you don't miss anything there. We were very welcome and the staff is also helpful and nice, so give it a try.

Owner Nicola Blythe-Wood and her team at Armadale ensure you are comfortable and well looked after. I have stayed in 3 different rooms and each were more than adequate in cleanliness and comfort. The food is great as well. Probably the best place to stay when in Harare for business or pleasure.

I stayed here whilst on business and can say this has to be one of the best places I've stayed in whilst travelling around the world! The food was magnificent and the quality of care was second to none! Lovely to sit out in the evening and have a beer with the owners and guests. Would recommend to anyone!!

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.
