“Great accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

A super place to stay with very nice staff. We have been back many times and have never been disappointed. It is exceptionally clean and the quality of the bedding and linen is excellent. It is also very reassuring to be able to park the car in a safe environment.

The website doesn't do the property justice. Words will also not do the property justice but I will try ... a lovely gem outside of the city which is clean / friendly / cosy / comfortable / peaceful. Most importantly, the team took extra care to ensure the stay was nothing less than perfect.

My favourite part had to be the breakfast which I had in the garden by the pool surrounded by lush green and the sounds of nature. The temperature was just right and the friendly staff ensured I had a wholesome meal before I checked out for my busy day.

I doubt I will look for another place on my next trip to Harare.

Room Tip: I am an early bird so chose a room that faces east to enjoy the sunrise.

What a pleasure it was to check into Ballyntynes. The staff are excellent, friendly and personable. The lodge is spectacular and very relaxing. I did not expect to encounter such nice accomadation and is far better than staying in an over priced hotel in downtown Harare. The staff will help you organise anything in an efficient manner. To be honest I am not looking forward to leaving!
