I totally understand that Flatdog lodge is at the budget end of accommodation in Vic Falls and was expecting the decor to be a bit dated and the room fairly small. However it’s not acceptable to have no water in the rooms for eight hours a day. No showers or flushing the loo is pretty grim. I recognise this is due to load shedding in Zim which is out of their control but they need to find a way of connecting the water pump to the generator or at least providing some buckets of water to the room. Or at least warn clients and maybe offer some kind of compensation. Really disappointing.

Clean and colourfully decorated with interesting rooms and grounds. Only downside is that the walk to town is quite long, they do offer a free shuttle to town to book activities. I'd be happy to stay again.

The lodge is small but well kept. Pity is a bit far from the centre of the village so you need to take a taxi back in the dark hours (after 7pm). It was clean and breakfast is pretty good. Tea and coffee available all day. Staff very cordial. Room and bathroom pretty small. Would recommend it for budget stay.

We had an incredible stay at Flatdog. The staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. The drivers were always available if we needed to go somewhere. We desperately needed to see a doctor one morning during our trip and the guy at the front desk organised a driver for us immediately. The driver then stayed with us at the doctors and then the pharmacy. Then when we arrived back to the lodge, the ladies set breakfast up for us a second time so that we didn't miss out. Amazing hospitality and a gorgeous setting. Would definitely stay again.

This is a real vibee type place to stay. The staff are great and very helpful. But dear oh dear the owners/management really need to look at the finer details! The breakfast in the morning is a great boom when you leave at 5 am for a game drive or Falls at dawn viewing - however needs to be upgraded a little - and a paper serviette would be great. The family room we stayed in (No10) - the beds were great but was a little disconcerted as to what lay in the little loft space above our heads?? The shower room was appalling - although staff were on the ball to come and "fix" the shower taps - the pipes still rattled when the cold water was turned on - (OH note to management - you need to turn down the heat on the hot water system it is positively dangerous - especially if the cold turn-on is suspect) the cleanliness is not great but blame the management on this for not updating/renewing fitted tiles round the basin etc. Corners could do with a good scrub. Went to look at other hotel owned/managed by same group The Nguni and this was a much better grade of property but price would also be relevant. You have a special place here with good price offer but just a little polish would do the soul the world of good when a guest is visiting such a magic area.
