Victoria Falls Hotel review

Just loved it. Super location, ambiance and service. There are few hotels like this left on the planet.

Those who know the E & O Hotel in Penang, or Las Mananitas in Cuernavaca will know what I mean.

Would love to return.

A fascinating place

A place we had to visit, and facilities definitely grand and attractive.

Dinner in the Livingstone Room was a highlight - except the mosquitoes lurking under the table!

Colonialism is still alive.

It was like a step back to a by-gone time. This sprawled out genteel colonial hotel was elegant and timeless.

I didnt eat there apart from breakfast as I took the Zambezie river cruise that served food and champagne, but the breakfast was the most comprehensive I have ever experienced, even from a top flight Hong Kong hotel.

The setting was tropical and the staff were attentive and couteous. My room looked out over the grounds at the back directly in front of the famous bridge that separates Zambia from Zimbabwe.

Charming hotel by Victoria Falls

Staying at this hotel was like being transported back to the early 1900s, the decor was of luxurious and tasteful Victorian style and the service was excellent. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom dreamy.

There were many rooms for guests to entertain in, but my favorite was the piano room which led to a terrace overlooking a vast garden and Victoria Falls bridge. There's a path that would take you from the hotel to Victoria Falls, which we took advantage of. We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed the afternoon, massages and food.

Would recommend this place to anyone coming to Victoria Falls!

Unlocked for upgrade

Shown to Luxury Suite overlooking bridge and waterfall smoke. No explanation for upgrade but very welcome.

Used as rest day, walking to falls and afternoon by large pool. Took small meals on Terrace restaurant, not overpriced.

Hotel remains icon of historical decadent luxury in Vic Falls tourist bubble in country trying to feed itself. Nevertheless a fabulous experience

Victoria Falls Hotel - perfect!

Highlights:-

Loved the ambience of this hotel. Many very interesting communal rooms. The Stanley Terrace was an amazing place to sit - comfortable chairs - stunning view - impeccable service. Food excellent.

It was our 45th wedding anniversary and we were given a wonderful welcome - flowers and wine in our room with a lovely poem tied up in a scroll with a red rose.

Our room was extremely comfortable with a king size bed, spacious bathroom and quiet air conditioning.

Activities - no comment as we did not arrange activities via the hotel.

We did go on a wonderful Zambezi Sundowner River Explorer (Signature Deck) that Megan at Expert Africa arranged for us.

Victoria Falls Hotel review

Dominic was determined to stay here and it was enormous and full of American tourists but phenomenal.
My one comment was the first thing they said was that we couldn't eat i the dining room as it was fully booked and that was something that Dominic had really wanted to do so this was disappointing.
Otherwise we had an incredible time

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.
