Woodlands Guest Lodge
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We stayed for five days at Woodlands Lodge in August 2013. The combination of a peaceful setting, superb staff and excellent location made it the perfect choice for our business needs in Harare. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip.

A quiet and relaxing haven ideal for a few nights stay in Harare whether it be for business or pleasure. Well appointed rooms, quietly professional hosts and staff as well as a superb garden. Will definitely return.

Woodlands is a little oasis in Harare, set in beautifully landscaped grounds and with a series of well built lodges with all the amenities.

The owner, David, is fantastic and always happy to help out in any way. Makes you feel very welcome.

Highly recommended, for business or private travel.

I have stayed at other hotels/lodges in Harare that were more expensive and not nearly as nice as Woodlands. The rooms are very nice - comfy beds, bathrobe, cable TV - and very clean. The internet is great - I was able to video skype with my daughter in Australia - which was very important. 10 minute walk to Sam Levy's Village (restaurants, pharmacy, shopping). David and Lynn were extremely friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome. Haven't lived and traveled through Africa, I was very impressed with Woodlands and will be coming back.

This was my first ever trip to Zimbabwe and I couldn't have stayed in a better place: hospitable, warm hosts; comfortable, clean lodges set in a stunning,safe location.

The layout of Woodlands is simple but rustic and elegant, allowing you to reconnect with nature in a big city. I didn't use the fitness room nor did I order room service. There is no dinner service but we were offered some sandwiches when we arrived to tie us over until we went out.

Breakfast must not be missed! David, Lynn (and their staff) made us feel welcome; nothing was too much to ask.

Would highly recommend a stay here especially if you are travelling alone.

I stayed at Woodlands for a month, and it was a pleasure each evening to enter the gates and be surrounded by the lush vegetation and busily calling birds overhead and practically underfoot. I am a big nature buff, but I think that this peaceful place would appeal to almost any visitor who appreciates high quality accommodations and services in a relaxing setting. Immaculately clean, superb attention to detail, and great tennis court too! Highly recommended.

When you walk down the drive at Woodlands your shoulders drop and you feel peace descend. Dave and Lynn run a tight ship and the rooms are tastefully decorated, comfortable and CLEAN. Everything smells clean; the towels, the linen on the bed, the rooms in general. There is nothing to fault at Woodlands, and I can usually find something wherever I stay!
Breakfasts are perfect, and if you order dinner you will not be disappointed.
The gardens are amazing, and it is lovely to sit out by the pool for a sundowner in the evening.
As mentioned in a previous review, Dave could not be more helpful, whatever your request.
Whether you are on business or holiday, this is the best place to stay in Harare.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.
