            Agoda Booking”
            Agoda created an unnecessary problem for me which was never resolved to my satisfaction. I booked thru Agoda and the hotel was already fully booked. I paid Agoda and the all the hotel could do is find me inferior accommodation further out of town.

            Very disappointed in hotel and service”
            We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and if I had the opportuntiy after the first night I would have transferred somewhere else. The hotel itself is in disrepair and needs a lot of maintenance done. The service was ordinary and things were not replaced in rooms when when cleaned.

            Hotel management do not honour your booking”
            After booking this hotel 5 months early due to the closeness to the area our group staying we were dumped at another property way out of town due to the hotel overbooking. When my husband was dropped at the hotel post rafting they told him there was no booking under my name so he had no idea then where we were staying as they didn’t pass on about the new hotel. This also happened to our hotel transfer we had pre arranged to the airport the next day, telling them they had never heard of us rather than tell them our new hotel. They even had the nerve to say we were being moved to a 5 star hotel it was bearly a 3. Costing up lots in taxi fare driving in and out of town. Very poor hotel management

            One of the best hotels in Victoria Falls”
            This is probably one of the best hotels in Victoria Falls. It is just in two kilometers from the waterfalls. Among the problems that I encountered is that I could not open the door to the balcony - it was stuck. The second problem was that wi-fi was not always working. I also booked the hotel it without breakfast so I can not say anything about their food.

            Good location but should more shuttles per day and should be a lot earlier. The minibar was nice and useful especially as there is a lack of halaal food in vic falls. Some days the traditional dancing and music went on a little late. Pleasant staff and responded promptly to requests.

            A Good Option”
            We stayed here in December 2016. We were very pleased with the size of our room and the quality of the furnishings. The hotel grounds are well kept and it is in a good location. The staff were always friendly and helpful. From our room we saw a family of mongoose and a couple warthogs! We had one dinner here and it was only OK. We opted to eat "in town" for our other meals. I would stay here again.

            Lacklustre”
            Location
            Pretty disappointing. Bathrooms are in desperate need of an upgrade, towels were extremely thin and even had holes in them. Tried calling housekeeping for an ironing board and got no answer. When I went to reception the house keeping guy was busy talking to other staff. When I got the iron I was given a sheet and told to use the table as an ironing board. Sat for dinner and waited over 10 minutes at a half set table for staff to acknowledge me So overall a pretty poor performance from a hotel that is rated fairly high

            Rather disappointing but this is Zimbabwe and everything seems to be very tired and no maintenance/upgrades. Definitely, just a 3 star hotel, we think its overpriced but seems everything is around Victoria Falls. Rooms a large enough, happy to change rooms after being directly along a very noisy main road.

            The location, the welcoming, the Airconditioning
            A very poor stay. After being initially greeted warmly the service quickly went down hill. The toilet was broken when we arrived, and broke twice more during our stay. The Wifi was out of order for 2 of the 3 days. The bar staff were rude and inefficient, and we felt uncomfortable in public areas. The rooms are clean, and air con works well. Over priced for me.

            it could have been so good ”
            the best things were the location,the nice,clean pool and the chance to see wild animals (baboons and mongooses) roaming the grounds
            The hotel is fairly good but could be so much better with a little effort. The pool is very good but there is a serious shortage of chairs / loungers so not many people can use it. the sunken pool bar looks good but means there is nowhere to sit outside for a drink except in the "bar pit". We did have some issues while at the Rainbow. the staff are variable - from very pleasant and responsive to,in some cases not very useful at all. There is an African dance group who are fine but are VERY loud and appear to perform every night so if you want to talk between 7 and 9 you have almost to stay in your rooms! The thing to be aware of is the attempted rip-off on breakfasts. The restaurant staff tried to charge us 28 USD for an average b'fast (Dinner is only $15) but after a heated debate negotiated down to 15....not what you expect in a professional hotel.

            Decent 3* hotel”
            Bedding, location, staff
            Although by all means this is not a great hotel, it is a very decent option considering the other options in the area. VF is generally very expensive. The better hotel options are much more expensive, and the less expensive options are much worse in quality and service. Therefore, this qualifies as a decent 3 star hotel. Bed is good which is an improvement from last year's reviews. Lots of pillows. Location is great. Walking distance to the falls and you can walk to town even at night. Wifi was working in the room most of the time. The only problems found were: - very old and noisy a/c making it very hard to have a good nights sleep - no mosquito nets on windows. If we had them we would not have to use the a/c as the nights are pleasant. Unlike other reviews here, we found that staff was very friendly and helpful. Just don't forget to tip a bit them as this is the custom. Tip: book without breakfast, and get better breakfast in town for fraction of cost
