A beautiful grand old hotel, full of history. Take a walk down the passages, hanging on the walls are photographs telling the history of the hotel. Grounds are beautiful, I wish more hotels separated the swimming pool, rather than have it as the main feature. Afternoon high tea on the terrace, overlooking the bridge and spray from the falls. Breakfast... More

Fantastic hotel with both very good food and very good service. The pool area is nice and it is great to swim in when the heat is at its worst. The rooms are large and nice but we had to change as it smelled a little weird in our room downstairs. The change went smoothly and the new room upstairs... More

Pros: This hotel is absolutely magnificent. It all starts when you get greeted right outside the hotel, everybody has a smile and is so friendly. Truly Welcoming. Breakfast at the Jungle Juction restaurant was delicious and had a great variety of pastries, meats, omelets and drinks We also had dinner at The Livingstone Room, which was a sensational experience one...

Check-in didn't go well, as we had prepaid extra beforehand for a room overlooking the river, a room that however became available only the next day (which meant unpacking/packing and moving rooms)........but turned-out to be ready for us only well in the afternoon on that next day, and only so after some complaining at management (as check-out time is 10.00...

The Victoria Falls Hotel was built in 1904 and when you are there, you are living in 1904. The hotel is classy. We were met with a nice cool lemonade and addressed by name. Our room was complete with mosquito nets and an air conditioner. It was small, but quaint. It was comfortable. And everything worked well. Everything about the... More

The hotel is lovely, but the staff attitude was a huge let down. All show and no substance. We stayed in the st a blue wing ,deluxe room. Gave us a double when twin requested. Wine given by our tour agent went to the wrong room. We had a private check in, where we were assured anything we wanted could... More

y to say the least. Not for the first time the bell boy offered to take my Linen jacket as we approached the reception and promised to have it returned spotless for dinner that evening. Service impeccable and the suites were beautiful shabby chic the entire corridors and reception rooms filled with game from a by gone age. The fans... More

A grand hotel and the perfect venue for our all too brief stay in Zimbabwe. From our first view of this elegant piece of architecture, we were enveloped in the feeling of history that defines this place. Old world charm best describes the rooms, yet modern amenities and comfort are not neglected. Nothing like an open air breakfast with butterflies,... More

An old-fashioned hotel perhaps but our room was stunning and the service in the hotel is second to none. We would have loved a view of the Falls - but as we did not spend too much time in the room, this did not really matter. A real step back in time and a treat to be here.

It may be a little tired and in need of a refresh but it is still a HUGE treat to stay at this grand old lady. Everyone should be privileged to stay here once just to experience what it was like 70 years ago. Forget the dodgy decor and the slightly cantankerous plumbing, and soak up the history. Even if...
