A magnificent hotel

A magnificent hotel, very grand in style, well spaced rooms, aristocratic settings.

Room was big with a huge balcony.

Luxurious, it was the best place to end our Zimbabwe safari holiday .

Victoria Falls Hotel review

The staff were very helpful but subdued compared with our last visit 6 years ago.

I gather Mr Mugabe is now taking a slice of the takings and guest numbers have slumped badly - we were asked to encourage people to visit. It was a shame to see a great hotel struggling against increasing odds but despite all managing to maintain its excellence.

Victoria Falls Hotel review

Super setting, colonial grandeur. base rooms very old fashioned but comfortable. Stable block rooms better.

The vast majority of the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. Just one of the terrace staff was a bit grumpy.

The Livingstone Room offered excellent food and polished service.

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!
