Just stayed for 3 nights for a work trip. So lovely to feel so well taken care of. Staff was solicitous and attentive to every need; tasty breakfast and dinner, and the grounds are gorgeous. They've done a fabulous job of decorating, and there's something delightful to ooh and aah over around every corner. Convenient location as well. Highly recommend...

I stayed at the Armadale Lodge for a week a few years back for work, and I thoroughly enjoyed my trip. On a previous trip, I was sent to Pretoria and disliked every minute I was there, so i approached this trip with a fair amount of trepidation. I was wrong to. The lodge is very quaint and even a...

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!!
