A perfect end to a excellent trip to Namibia and Botswana.

Impressive that it is possible to maintain a ***** world class hotel in such a location

Royal Livingstone Hotel review

I found the evening meal a little over priced for the 'quality and quantity' of the food; the a la carte dinner menu was 'not balanced.' I was disappointed with the evening meal in the restaurant, but the breakfast was excellent.

The sun-loungers were most comfortable and the towels provided were of good quality. The swimming pool was well-kept and the sundeck was excellent, as were the cocktails.

I would have liked to have had a 'library' area.

Great Location and Lovely Hotel

Great location, we enjoyed being able to walk along to the Falls whenever we wished, and there was always the added bonus of what wildlife we might meet on the way, seeing zebra and giraffe in the hotel grounds!

Comfortable bedroom, and the food was very good.

Royal Livingstone Hotel review

We enjoyed the Royal Livingstone as it gave us a good place to prepare for our safari trip and to get over the flight. It had a peaceful atmosphere and was close enough to the falls that we could walk to it on our own.

The food was good, if a bit expensive.

Royal Livingstone Hotel review

Great location. Food OK, but we ate out in Livingstone two nights out of three and had great food at Ocean Basket where the staff were very helpful with Taxis etc.

I was unable to borrow a book on Birding they did not have one!!!!
The bar next to the river was a great spot.

We walked across the bridge to the Zimbawe side , well worth doing better views. We bought a double entry Visa for Zambia so saved about 30 dollers each. We carried on to lunch at the Vic Falls Hotel , very nice and good views from terrace.

what a place to spend Xams!

this was the luxury part of our trip and the hotel combines old world charm with excellent facilities and frendly staff.

The falls being so close was great and to sit having sun downers watching the sun set in this location was superb! Was great to go to the falls early in morning before the crowds arrive and to see a rainbow in the morning light! what a view!

The staff and the chef were very accomodating to our vehggie diet and the Xmas eve meal was excellent - further enhanced by Zebras trotting by as we celebrated Xmas!!

We also liked the hotel committment to growing its own fruit, vegetable, herbs, flowers etc. The gardeners gave us a an informative tour of the gardens.

Royal Livingstone Hotel review

Just marvellous! I stupidly went white water rafting which for me was a disaster ( I am too old) But that is not the hotel's fault.

Everything about it was brilliant, location and service in particular and the breakfast was something people were taking photos of. I would love to go back and maybe explore more of Zambia too. I even found a very good hairdresser in Livingstone, at the hotel's suggestion!

Fantastic stay at the Royal Livingston Hotel

I was slightly worried about this hotel due to some negative comments on Trip Advisor. It was superb, both rooms and suites were fantastic (we got ugraded to a suite so we were lucky enough to try both. The food was great and the location is stunning. It made the perfect end to our holiday as the pool was fantastic to relax by after our busy safari.
