      Definitely come back to this hotel again. ”

      This hotel is in strategic location, close everything. Staffs are so friendly and helpful. The hotel is very nice which remind me to the peroid of 100 years ago. The room is not so big, but designed very freindly user. You will be seen the wind animals playing to each other just out side yr room evey moring. The breakfast is buffet a’lacarte which many choices to be selected. The hotel is walking distance to the Vic falls you may see the misth and here the sound of water falls from yr breakfast table. This hotel is one of few large hotel in this area, my wife and my four years old boy love here very much. We will defenitely stay in this hotel again, if we have chance to go to Victoria falls. The cost is in high side but we think it is goid for the valuse of money. We are strongly recommend this hotel.

      Room 36 Bed Bugs, Montezuma's Revenge, Loud Noise”

      Large room, scenic view, very good breakfasts

      Terrible stay, the night club next door played Loud speakers every night until late - no sleep, my wife and I both had multiple bites all over our bodies from bed bugs in Room 36, the front desk said that the doctor would charge $100 to examine my wife so she decided to wait till we got home yesterday, front desk said the bites probably came from the drums we handled the night before at the Boma, I have washed/dry cleaned all our clothes, we shared a hamburger at the bar and got Montezuma's Revenge - not completely well from that yet. The Victoria Falls was excellent any the Zambeze River Cruise was spectacular. All in all, I'd visit again, but would probably stay at another Lodge. We've travelled a lot, but have never been gifted with bed bugs.

      Wish we'd stayed longer”

      Conscientious manager. Courteous staff. Peace & quiet

      We booked two nights so we could see The Falls before moving on to Botswana, but wished we had stayed another night. The hotel gave us all that we asked for when booking, (we couldn't have been closer to the bar and dining area). The manager was very good at making sure his guests were ok etc., even enquiring after my health as I had a niggly cough whilst there. Definitely recommend this hotel.

      Great comfort hotel, though food a bit overrated”

      proximity to falls, very quiet surroundings, spacious room

      Comfort-wise, am satisfied. I think for the price I paid, the quality is a bit overrated. Rooms though very comfortable, comes across as not only rustic but a bit worn out. First day I checked in, the door card system was down. Due to some miscommunication, I was initially told I will get my card in 30mins. 30 mins later , no one seemed to give me a satisfactory answer. So each time I go into my room, a hotel staff has to follow me to swipe his master card. Told them I will collect the card after my afternoon trip to Vic Falls. Came back some 3 hours later, I still didn't get my card. Was visibly annoyed as I was told the day shift chap has gone back. So they were trying to "locate" the key/card !! Finally in the early evening, I got my new door card. It was frankly a very put-off experience on my first day. Palm Restaurant: very attentive servers. Impressed. However, the food quality for the most part is very overrated and hence expensive. I have way better food at cheaper prices in Cape Town ! That said, they were very diligent to let me have a post-dinner smoking table upon request for the 3 nights I was there. On an overall collective rating, I would give it a 7/10.

      Close to the Victoria Falls , wonderful food and quiet , relaxing gardens

      We felt the prices for the room was high as the room was dated and the bathroom needs an upgrade. For example the curtains were not full enough and needed a peg or two to close the gap . Food though was superb.

      Tolle Lodge und fußläufig zu den Victoria Fällen!”

      Die Lage ist perfekt, besser geht es kaum. Man kann alle möglichen Ausflüge rund um Victoria Falls direkt im Hotel buchen. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist sehr gut und auch das a la carte Abendessen sehr gut. Der Pool ist eher klein. Die Zimmer sind super schön und sauber. Insgesamt war es ein erholsamer, sehr empfehlenswerter Aufenthalt.
