“A very good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This hotel was modern, was clean, was close to the Victoria Falls, close to the main street shopping and the curio shops. There were plenty of towels but rarely faceclothes (for us North Americans !) The large pool was the perfect temperature. The a/c is the room worked well - the hallways were very hot. It was hot outside ! The only negative has to do with the large size of this hotel. It is essentially 16 blocks, forming a circle. There is lots of walking on the premises .... You never really get lost because you always, eventually, end up at reception.
The buffet breakfasts and dinners did not appeal to me - there was variety and something was always OK. We had entertainment during dinner.
There was no decaff coffee anywhere in Zimbabwe - I used my own. The TV had many channels. The fridge was cold. There was a good safe. You will be happy here.

This a lovely looking hotel within walking distance of e Victoria Falls. Their rate for bed and breakfast was v steep but their food was budget. The beautiful lake around the hotel makes mosquitoes a real problem but v little was being done to make there would be no mosquitoes in e room. There loads of mosquitoes in the room and this before the rains have started in Ernest. The water in the Falls was at its lowest but it was stiff magnificent. I never get tired of seeing it.

This hotel is very close to the Victoria Falls. They have a short cut route to the main entrance of the Park. It's about 10 minutes walk. The hotel is big and everything you need is available. All the staff are very friendly and nice. Breakfast is good and there are variety of choices. They have live African music in the restaurant during diner. Food is great. We stayed here for 4 days 3 nights.

Spent five days here in early Nov 2012. Really comfortable and well situated hotel. Excellent service. The staff and the people in general are really friendly and courteous.

The footpath behind the hotel takes you to the lookout and the Park in a couple of minutes.

Great views all around.

Definitely no regrets from staying at this hotel.....keep up the great work.

Didn't stay at the hotel but did have cocktails overlooking a fantastic view of Victoria Falls. Spacious dining area, option to sit w/o windows & enjoy one of the most beautiful areas in the world. A must stop even if you're not a hotel guest.

Had a very good experience in September. The staff are very friendly, helpful and and willing.
The grounds were very well maintained, clean and picturesque. We will definitely return to the Kingdom in the near future.
