Steph and her Team treats every guest like a King! The food is delicious, the service is outstanding! A must when you are staying over in Harare as this is a home away from home. They go the extra mile with every booking to ensure the process is smooth and professional.

Comfortable, spacious, clean, very friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent and dinners were tasty with lovely deserts. The bar is well stocked and very reasonably priced. Secure with lovely gardens. Only 30-45 minutes from the airport and very close to Borrowdale Village.

Wonderful experience! Truly a charming and relaxing place to be. Everyone who worked there was extremely nice and accommodating. Also the gym is beautiful! Rooms, common area, outside space were all exceptional. I also very much appreciate them letting me have a late checkout so I could finish my meetings. Thank you!! I will be back.

The lodge was a warm and welcoming place to stay, beautifully created surroundings, real coal fires to warm the air and very friendly helpful staff. The food is fantastic, and quickly served on request. The rooms are spacious and decorated to a high quality. The bed is huge and very comfy - I slept very well there. Highly recommend this lodge to anyone looking for a place to stay in Zim!

Ballatynes is a beautiful place to stay. An amazing combination of homeliness with a sense of luxury and all the benefits of a hotel- I am not sure I have have found such good blend of both these things anywhere in the world after travelling a great deal. The staff are kind in every way. We were cooked for and served by a really great chef. Self services drinks of most kinds available. The staff respond to any request promptly and with care. The layout is really restful with all sorts of comfortable nooks to nestle away in. The rooms are quiet and comfortable and, for us crucially have nice thick curtains for a dark room at night. Cannot recommend enough.
