Victoria Falls Hotel review

This was a surprise. The service was so good and super friendly.

The rooms were great and so was the food.

The hotel had a really nice feel to it and I would definitely want to go back there.

Victoria Falls Hotel review

Beautiful old colonial hotel with excellent service and lovely food. We couldn't fault it.

My daughter and I did the zip wire over the gorge from the Zimbawaen side which only took us half way across which was a bit disappointing and very expensive.

We really enjoyed the 'booze cruise' on the Zambezi and my husband and other daughter went white water rafting which is quite hairy and you need to be fairly fit to walk down and up the gorge sides to the river.

One of the best views

This hotel is a real experience of colonial living, tea on the lawn, dinner in the Livingstone room and supper at the African buffet is all a must, plus there are so many other activities to do whilst you are here or you can just idle away a few hours by the pool.

The staff are excellent and very helpful they arranged a screening of the England v Russia game for us at another hotel.

A truly great hotel

This is one of the truly great hotels in the world.

The welcome, ambience, service, attention to detail, amenities and food were of the highest order.

One felt it was a privilege to have stayed there and the icing on the cake was that it was only a few minutes walk from the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls.

What a wonferful place

Fantastic location to visit the Falls and town. Beautiful hotel. Lovely staff.

Dont bother visiting Zambia to see the falls. Zimbabwe is good enough. If you do get mutiple visa otherwise you pay twice.

Very relaxing place but food not great so go to Look Out Cafe-amazing views, to eat.

Victoria Falls Hotel review

Victoria Falls Hotel exceeded our expectations and, to our surprize, provided a better overall experience than The Royal Livingstone where we stayed later.

Victoria Falls Hotel review

Overall, we were somewhat disappointed with Victoria Falls Hotel. When we arrived, the check-in desk was busy with another couple, so the manager (presumably) suggested we wait at the terrace to be introduced to the hotel. We had waited about 25 minutes before feeling we should return to the lobby and find out what was happening. Distractedly, he told us he'd be there in a moment.

About 5 minutes later, he came out. However, when we said we would only be staying one night, and had plans for the evening, he quickly curtailed the conversation and returned to the lobby. We were told nothing - not a room number, nothing about breakfast or anything about the hotel. It seemed the only interest was upselling tours or other activities, and since we were unable to partake, there seemed to be no interest in making us feel welcome.

That said, the hotel is extremely impressive and a historical icon. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained, and the facilities such as the swimming pool are also pretty great. However it was difficult to get past the initial impression of being made to feel unwelcome.

Beautiful old British colonial hotel.

Excellent service, wonderful food and great cocktails. Also positioned only 10 minutes walk from the falls.

Highly recommended.

Victoria Falls Hotel review

I'm glad we were booked into a 'deluxe' room in the stables block, because the standard rooms in the main building were very small and cramped.

Superb breakfasts, excellent value light lunches at the swimming pool.

10 minutes walk to the falls.
