From the moment I arrived to the moment I left the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice, clean and relatively spacious. The rooms have cold A/C and celling fans. The restaurant food was just ok. The bar area has a great view of the grounds. It’s a little too far from town to walk, partly because... More

My expectations were surpassed by my 2 night experience at Elephant Hills. It is a beautiful hotel with a unique design. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff are very polite, pleasant and very attentive. Several staff members went out of their way to make me feel like a VIP - and some even said that they did... More

Great view of the Zambezi and of animals roaming freely on the grounds. When I first saw this hotel 15 years ago, it was great, but now, it's 20 years overdue for a renovation. We stayed here for a conference, but next time, we would stay elsewhere in Vic Falls. The rooms were drab and dark, the bed was uncomfortable.... More

It's not as close to the Falls or as elegant as the Victoria Falls Hotel, but this is still a great place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable and the hotel staff is wonderfully friendly and attentive. There's a free shuttle bus that takes you close to town and the Falls (maybe a 10-minute ride).

We stayed 2 nights in the hotel, and after a week in the bush it was the perfect recovery. Spacious rooms, nice outside pool area, internet available in most locations (although not always working), a fitness that is spartan, nice restaurant with wonderful buffet breakfast. Walking around the grounds you can run into many different animals - the town of... More

I recently attended a business conference at Elephant Hills Resort. I had not been to Zimbabwe before, so did not know what to expect. The experience was delightful. My room was on par with a good quality hotel in the USA with a lovely view of the grounds and golf course, the spray of the falls and the Zambezi river... More

We stayed at Elephant Hills June 17, 18 & 19, 2012, and would definitely do it again! THE question to consider is whether you want to stay near the center of town or outside the center. Elephant Hills is the latter. We walked through Ilala Lodge, Victoria Falls Hotel, and Kingdom Hotel. All appear to be great places to stay.... More

A very comfortable hotel that caters mostly for the business/conference type traveler.Good choice for a holiday hotel though as the activities cater for everyone from the playground for the kids to the large swimming pool,the spa,squash courts and golf course.

Although a little out of town, there is a hotel shuttle that runs a couple of times a day. Food and service was excellent. Rooms tidy with all the mod cons you need. Hairdresser and beauty therapists on site if you need some pampering at the end of your holiday!
