We had to wait over a half hour to get our (2) rooms. The place was packed on Christmas! The signature furry "cheetah" chairs, headboards and blanket had me wondering what bugs could be hiding in them. The chandelier about the bed was thick with spider webs. I pulled back the sheets and took pictures of black dots that were... More

I stayed at the Chrismar for 2 nights in early December. We practically had the entire complex to ourselves. The room was nice with airconditioning and a large bathroom. The bar and restaurant charge in local currency of kwacha and US dollars and you will get a better price if you pay in kwacha. The staff can also make change... More

Christmar is a very beautiful property that draws one's attention to its location and could be an ideal place for those business people and tourists alike who like to have peace and quiet place to work and easy access to Victoria Falls. The rooms are very generous and for those on a honeymoon a good place to chill. The bathrooms... More

Even though Hotel Chrismar seems to be a fancy hotel (the price says so - 150 $/night), this accommodation can be easily considered as an option for a business trip to Livingstone, if you need accommodation. The hotel is conceived as a lodge, with many houses spread around the yard, each of them having 2 rooms. The houses are built... More

Front of house service was good. Rooms untidy on arrival. The following evening after the days outing we got back to our room which hadn't been touched by housekeeping. Food was okay but nothing exceptional. Pool bar service was shocking to say the least.

This hotel is ideally situated for the Victoria Falls and a number of excursions. We had problems checking in as the system had gone down. After an hour and a half we were let into our room by master key and received a key two hours later. The management made a point of apologising the next day. The room was... More

Sadly when we arrived after a very long flight the reception area was having computer problems, and no one seemed able to assist in giving us our rooms, after waiting for a couple of hours someone else suggested letting us into our rooms with a master key and then we could at least settle in, this they did and about...

The hotel staff a very friendly (especially Innocent who is a valuable part of the team and a gem) however although the staff are friendly they do not sort out any issues you may need assistance with - they tell you they will 'come back to you! I am still waiting for the reception staff to come back to me... More

Many reviews have already covered the basic aspect of this hotel. I found it to be much more than I expected: very friendly and helpful staff, awesome bar in the middle of the pool, good food (including breakfast), clean and spacious rooms, hot water with good pressure. The front desk was helpful when trying to book day tours and were... More
