The hotel staff is very attentive to the needs of guests and made an exception of offering room service on the day we arrived very tired. The rooms are clean and tidy as well as comfortable, but there is a lack of fresh juice in the morning at breakfast. Very good service overall however, and enjoyable stay.

This was my first time in Zambia and the first hotel I stayed in while there. Was impressed with the overall courtesy, modern comfortable rooms, scrumptious food and wonderful privacy. I was welcomed with beautiful smiles, the reception staff were wonderful, cheerful and ready to provide all assistance you need. The hotel is in town yet far from town centre,... More

Great hotel. Not far from airport or the Falls. Fuel station next to hotel for quick fuel refill and supplies. Staff are really friendly. However, there seems to be confusion regarding authenticity of halal meals. One staff member said that all meals on the night we went for dinner were halal. On another day, we were told differently. In the... More

A 10 min $5 taxi ride to the falls, and a 5 in walk to downtown Livingston makes this a good location. The friendly service made it a great place to stay. This is the nicest Protea we have stayed at, nice gardens and pool, and a good, fresh breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights at the Protea. The rooms were nice and standard. The garden a dining area was very nice and a great place to have a drink or coffee in the afternoon. The staff was very friendly and made the stay. We would definitely stay here again. Good location and walking distance to restaurants and shops.

Just outside of town, although an easy, safe walk to it, this place has really lovely public areas to just chill out, spacious and comfortable lobby, and a terrific outdoor dining and bar area, replete with an island in the pond with very comfy outdoor furniture.
