Very variable accommodation. If you are going to stay here make sure you stay in the newer wing, lower part of the complex. Comfortable rooms, clean and a good place if you are based in Victoria Falls for safari activities. However, a big warning!! Half of the rooms are terrible. When I mean terrible, I mean dirty, terrible bathrooms, poor... More

Luxury hotel at a good location within Victoria Falls. Very cozy rooms, well equipped. Extended breakfast. The bar isn't open very long, but you can have yourself a rooftop party on the main building (bring your own drinks!).

Stayed here for 2 nights after finishing an overland tour. At best and for the price I paid I found this hotel to be pretty average. As mentioned in previous reviews the bathroom needs a facelift. The shower curtain wasn't long enough, or the bath leaked) as the floor had quite a large puddle on it after my shower. The... More

We stayed for two nights on our trip to Victoria falls. We were given a room on the ground floor near the carpark, with a view of some greenery from our room. The room was fairly spacious and everything did what it was supposed to do. The hotel was a five minute walk from town with some friendly but persistent... More

We were booked in this hotel by our tour company for 2 nights. The hotel met our expectations: - room was clean - bathroom a bit dated (very old tub) - wi-fi a bit slow at times - good breakfast and staff service - nice pool area I would give 3 1/2 stars.

Not the fanciest hotel - but so comfy and cozy - beautiful grounds - clean - charming. Nice staff - good breakfast and dinner. Can take complementary van to sister hotel Azambezi one the bank of the Zambezi for dinner. Can walk into town for shopping or alternate dining. This is our choice when we visit Victoria Falls

I stayed for 2 nights at the Rainbow Hotel. My room was great, and everything was very clean. The staff were amazing. Everyone was so friendly and ready to help out. Everyone asked me how my room was and if I needed anything. It was really a wonderful experience. I'd highly recommend the hotel.

We were here for 2 nights. It was well presented. The room was cleaned (but can be better). It is a fairly old hotel, and the bathroom shows signs of age. Overall it was okay, but for that price it can be better. Breakfast was very good, with a lot of staff ready to help. WiFi signal was average.

It wouldn't be fair to rate his hotel as average, however I do believe there is room for serious improvement. We initially were out in a room by the roadside, and after asking to move to a quieter room they happily obliged. However, the room we moved to, while quieter and brighter, also lacked the mini fridge the other had,... More
