the Sunbird Lodge is a very nice place to stay especially on business. More of a guest house, Sunbird is located in a quiet neighbourhood (can be a bit hard to find, please use knowledgable taxi drivers) with beautiful landscaping. The staff are very friendly and helpful wherever they can.

We stopped for two nights so we could visit Wild is life sanctuary and it was a lovely peaceful place to stay. We were collected from the airport, arranged by Sally even though our flight from Vic Falls was delayed by 90 mins and in fact was just us minus luggage! Abel was our host for the couple of days...

Friendly, welcoming, clean, & comfortable - airport pickup was seamless, dinner was cooked while I showered & my laundry was done overnight. Excellent experience I could have lived without the subsequent email "reminding" me to review them though - they were good enough I was definitely going to when I got back from safari and didn't need a pushy email

Sunbird provides a a tranquil and welcoming setting, close to the centre of Harare, with friendly competent staff and excellent wifi. To get around Harare, car hire is advised. Bookings are breakfast only, though arrangements for other meals can be made on a case-by-case basis and the nearby Honeydew farm/Food Lovers' Paradise can provide all necessary ingredients for home cooking.

Another enjoyable stay on a recent business trip. From the food to cleanliness to service which i say well done to Costa who was on duty during my stay as well as super fast internet, cannot say enough what excellent value for money Sunbird Guesthouse is. Book at least 2 weeks in advance to ensure availability!

The guesthouse is well run, recently refurbished, looks fresh and clean and the breakfast was nice. The location is both quiet and safe. I unreservedly recommend it. From what I could see, all rooms had double beds and en suite showers. The garden is secluded and pretty, the lounge pleasant, the 'Africa' decor appropriate.
