“Great guesthouse, home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights in September and it was great. Nothing was too much trouble for Miriam, she helped us plan our activities and gave some real insights into the area. The breakfasts were great, the steaks Simeon cooked even better! The rooms were simple, but very clean and the atmosphere was so friendly. The pool was much needed at the end of a day's canoeing, and there were always loungers available and plenty of towels. We felt so welcome whilst we stayed here and would definitely recommend this guest house to others.

We have stayed here for 6 nights. And it was just great! The staff went that step extra. Our wheelchair went missing due to burocrazy of Britisch Airways and nothing was crazy for the staff to help us!
The accomodation is great for the price. I am already missing the morning breakfast talks with Simon. The tasteful diners and snacks. The good advice for activities. And the relaxed, everything gona be allright, attitude from Katherine. That with the extra steps Miriam took to get Britsich Airways awake for our wheelchair. (Yes we got him back!). The lovely pool and the beatiful flowers an wild live, gave me a piece of home in Zimbabwe!

Room Tip: They have a special room for people in a wheelchair or otherwise disabled.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip and were perfectly satisfied. Each time we had rooms by the pool. They have electrical outlets that will take European plugs (outlets in that part of the world do not accommodate the plugs included in international sets that you can buy in the US or Europe).
The guesthouse is a little outside of town. Very walkable during the day but at night you have to take a taxi because it is in the Park and wild animals roam. We had dinner there one night and the food was fine. The manservant, Simeon, is very nice and helpful. The people at the desk were too. Our stay was part of a tour and so I don't know about the price but I gather that this place is quite reasonable compared to places in town.

We stayed 3 nights in the guest house in a big and conformable 3 beds room.
Most of the rooms surround a lovely patio with a nice swimming pool.Good Breakfast. The staff is very nice and take time to give us all the information we need, and very judicious advices for the restaurants. They organise all the activities, make the phone calls. During our stay, we had a personal problem and the manager and the direction have done one's utmost to help us. Thank you very much

We stayed one night in July and enjoyed it. The location is not ideal as it is a bit out of town, but it was quiet and clean. We found the hotels in town to be very expensive. The staff was friendly and welcoming.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

In an otherwise unreasonably pricey town, Amadeus provides good quality value. Though located a short taxi ride from the Falls, the cost of the taxi ($6 to town, $10 to the falls) is more than offset by the offensively expensive accommodations located in town. Katherine was helpful and reasonably friendly, and we enjoyed Simeon's good humor and willingness to help. Wireless internet service was poor and contained a surprise charge ($5) at the end, but otherwise the place was as advertised.
