“Lovely hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

The rooms in this hotel are really lovely and very modern. The bed is very comfortable and there are lovely huge showers. The rooms are chalet style with a little area to sit outside at each one which is really great. The restaurant and pool area are beautiful and the pool is spotless and very nice for a swim. The food and cocktails were very good. The staff were friendly and welcoming. All in all this is a great hotel and we had a very nice stay. Highly recommend.

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

After coming from 2 bush camps in Kruger and Hawange national parks, Cresta Sprayview was a nice break. This is a western style hotel with full AC, room safes, and decent bar. Rooms are comfortable and have been recently updated. The food has been adequate at best and could be improved. Location...easy walk to town or the falls but a cab only costs approx. $5/ cab. The hotel pool is fairly big and refreshing.

You will find a lot of OAT groups at this hotel but individuals can get similar service as a group member.

Bottom Line Nice hotel, decent location, I wish the food was better especially lunch and dinner!

This would have to be one of THE best places I've stayed. Great staff, food, wifi, facilities and all daily activities (helicopter ride, Chobe National Park, Bungy etc) can be booked from here.
It is clean and very comfortable. I found the place extremely relaxing and quite honestly, didn't want to leave. Will definitely be booking again.

Room Tip: Cresta Sprayview Vic Falls is single level. Very quite with lovely grounds and swimming pool. Rest...

The Cresta Sprayview is several long blocks up from the main business area, and is a very pleasant hotel with clean and attractive motel-style rooms in half a dozen buildings spread around a large property. The lobby and dining areas are appealing, and the staff is very competent. the restaurant is good, serving fairly standard hotel fare and a very good breakfast. A swimming pool next to the dining area helps create a resort feeling. In short, this is a good, but not remarkable place to stay.

This hotel is owned by OAT( Grand Circle I suppose is the parent co). We stayed here several nights at the end of our Ultimate Africa safari. Our room was clean and the bed and bedding comfy. Shower and bathroom were great. The food was reasonably good and nicely presented. The setting is lovely and the pool is gorgeous and sparkling clean. The desk was very helpful with taxis etc. it was a relaxing and pleasant way to spend our last days at Victoria Falls. The bar area was extensive and well stocked as well. There is a well stocked grocery store and a pharmacy within walking distance. There is also a well stocked reasonably priced shop of local crafts for last minute chargeable purchases - you know like when you need a giraffe bone bracelet for Aunt Bertha! Good job OAT!

The Cresta Sprayview hotel is located a few minutes outside downtown Vic Falls along the main road into the town. It has been so recently renovated that you can even smell the fresh paint on the walls. The suites have electronic card locks and a safes. The hotel has a great pool and pool side restaurant. The pool is thoroughly cleaned. Overall the staff are very friendly and helpful and can arrange taxis into town or to your destination (otherwise it's about a 10 minute walk). The hotel also has a gift shop and a tour agent where you can arrange game drives, bungee jumps, helicopter rides and many other fun activities offered in the area. The only minor downside is that the hotel is a bit isolated from the rest of the town, but taxis are on call when needed. Overall a wonderful experience at Cresta Sprayview.

Ended my safari with a few days at the Sprayview before heading back to the USA. The renovations are fabulous and the rooms are very clean and modern. Restaurant leaves something to be desired. The property is about a 15 minute walk from downtown Victoria Falls. Staff are very friendly.
