Stayed here for five days on a business trip in October 2016. Everything was really nice.
Pros: Excellent food. I ate breakfast here every morning and is a huge step up from the standard buffet-and-omelette style at most hotels catering to expats. Excellent coffee too. I feel this is worth mentioning in a country that produces excellent coffee. The eating lodge itself is really cool and has lot of character.
Gorgeous gardens: The grounds are really, really lovely. Lots of meandering little paths and ponds. Dusk is particularly nice.
Rooms: Very nice, clean, lodge style bungalows with mosquito nets.
Gym: Small but with plenty of equipment to get a workout in
Staff: Friendly and efficient
(Small) Cons: Location: It's a bit out of the way. We had about a 20 minute ride into the office each morning. Harare doesn't have much of a traffic problem these days so this was no big deal. Worth it in exchange for the tranquility.
Thatch roofs: there is a slight odor given off by the thatch, but I didn't find it overpowering or bad or anything. Just a little different.
I very much look forward to staying there again.
