I love the Vic Falls hotel for so many reasons! On arrival the front desk staff are friendly and professional and make it obvious that they are there for anything you may need. The hotel is over a 100 years old but beautifully decorated in the old colonial style and immaculately kept. Rooms are lovely and clean with great amenities... More

This 100+ year old historic hotel has been home to many travelers including English Royalty and Celebrities alike. Equally important, this charming hotel is situated so close to one of the greatest wonders of the world, Victoria Falls which has been aptly nicknamed Niagara on Viagra because it is five times larger But back to the hotel. Are there larger,... More

This is a very genteel experience, the hotel with it's lovely, lush expanse of grass which invites critters of all forms from warthogs to impalas. The food is really lovely..the high tea...scrumptious, you feel like you are from a different era, like you... More

We had a very lovely high tea here. The staff were helpful and efficient. The three tier high tea stand had a nice mix of savoury, sweet and scones. We've had high tea in a lot of places and the scones here were better than most others we've had. Enjoy your high tea with a lovely view from the terrace... More

Location, location, location. If you want to have breakfast watching the sunrise over the Falls, this is the place to book. Beautiful gardens, attentive staff, great breakfast. Arrive in style at its own railway platform on the "Most Luxurious Train in the World, the Pride of Africa from Cape Town.

The staff in the hotel are very friendly and welcome you with open arms to this lovely old Hotel. The location is great as you can walk to the falls only drawback here are the vendors who can be a nuisance. Beautiful view from the terrace where you can watch the Warthogs and Mongoose on the lawn. Also wonderful birdlife.... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Victoria Falls Hotel in May, 2015. From the hotel you can see a portion of Victoria Falls (mainly the vapor cloud from the spray) and the famous bridge over the gorge between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The hotel is very elegant and takes you back in time to the English colonial days.... More

We've been treated to wonderful service and warm hospitality making our weekend stay at this hotel all too short and wishing for more time.
