The lodge is a lovely oasis in Harare, with David & Lynn creating an environment perfect for relaxation. It is warm and inviting without being overtly luxurious, leaving you feeling safe, comfortable and well-cared for. Breakfast was excellent, and the friendly support and care from David & Lynn and their staff make this one of the nicest travel experiences in...

Wonderful, peaceful, clean and relaxing. Hosts are so welcoming and helpful. I'm usually in hotels but when I'm back in Harare, I'll want to stay here again. Perfect little lodges in well kept private grounds. I was here on a working tour of Southern Africa but this would make a great base for tourism too.

A well appointed room with plenty of space and a good bathroom (no tub in case you are wondering). The set is to have outside chalet type accommodation in very tranquil gardens. It really is a good place to relax. Breakfast is excellent with each one cooked to order. The staff are very attentive and always make an effort to...

Hands down the best place to stay in Harare. Large comfortable rooms, great wi-fi and friendly service. Dave is a great host. Business or pleasure - you can't beat Woodlands. I last stayed here four years ago and found things even better on this trip.

A friend had told me of this guest lodge. I was expecting a boarding house from the depths of seaside resort Blackpool 😀 Wrong! Beautiful setting with superbly appointed lodges. All mod cons. Lovely bathroom. A pool and fitness area. Tranquil and soothing. The owners Dave and his wife are lovely hosts. Yet to sample the breakfast but a nice...

I have stayed a number of times at Woodlands and nothing seems to be too much trouble for Dave and his staff. The rooms are really comfortable and the breakfast is full and hearty. The garden setting is really tranquil and you have to be reminded that you aren't in the country.

Stayed here whilst on a business trip. Lovely accommodation in a quiet part of the suburbs, convenient for shopping and most routes. Travelling on my own for business, this was a secure and relaxing accommodation at the end of busy days out and about, Generous sized cottages with a small veranda from which to enjoy the attractive garden and listen...

Woodlands is a lovely place to stay. The atmosphere is very calm and relaxing - water features outside all the rooms and a lovely pool and pond in the back yard with lovely gardens to wander through or read in. The breakfast is very good with custom-order hot plates and a spread of fruit. I had dinner at the hotel...
