We went here for lunch on the patio facing the falls spray, which we could see in the distance, and the gardens. Lovely hotel with some beautiful rooms. The lunch menu was varied and interesting and a reasonable price. Crocodile Caesar sald was tasty and well prepared. The cocktails were to die for.

This was our first real start of a 2 week Safari Vacation. What a way to begin! This is a very elegant colonial style hotel. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. Proximity to the Falls is awesome. The view of the Zambezi bridge is breathtaking. The rooms are so comfortable. Beds are luxuriously soft. Had a wonderful night sleep. The food on the terrance restaurant was delicious. I ordered the crocodile salad...it was very good. We had breakfast & dinner at the Jungle Junction buffet - the food was beautifully presented & very delicious. I had a massage and the masseuse was excellent. Check-in and check-out was very easy.

We spent two nights here in between safari camps in Zimbabwe and it was great. There was enough to do for a couple days, whether it was relaxing, shopping, or exploring the falls. Location is convenient - 5-10 min walking to town or a $6 cab at night/when you don't want to walk. Staff was super helpful and friendly with any requests we had. Food is pretty good - we tried the breakfast buffet and the dinner buffet (with a cultural show every night!), and we also took advantage of the afternoon tea and a 25 min back/shoulder massage that came with our room. We were in one of the stable rooms, which had nice natural light but otherwise felt a bit dated, while still nice enough. The bathroom was a bit tight, with barely any counter space, but I guess that is what bathrooms of that era were like. The hotel has beautiful grounds and lots of fascinating colonial art throughout. Overall a great stay and I would return next time I am in town and need an R&R stop.

Such a gorgeous property and exceptional service from staff! Would highly recommend a unique and iconic hotel! Included breakfast buffet was in an amazing setting and laid by the pool. We had a candle lit dinner with a live piano player which was a night to remember.

It was amazing! If you want to see the victoria falls then the victoria falls hotel is the right choice. The location with the view is stunning and with a 15minutes walk you are at the national park where the falls are. I can recommend the jungle junction restaurant- it‘s in the hotel area. For this dinner you must pay extra but the buffet is very special and a typical african show is included. A big compliment to Edson! A very kind, attentive server. Thanks to the whole team: you made our holiday unforgettable! Familie Kuriger

We love historic hotels and places that haven't been torn to the ground and ruined with an overload of modern amenities. This hotel has all the feeling of being in another century, grand and gracious. I read reviews complaining of worn carpets and deferred maintenance, what nonsense. She is a Grande Dame and I wouldn't change a thing. If you prefer the modern luxury of a Four Seasons, don't stay here. It's not for you. Not saying isn't isn't luxurious - our room was huge and the gigantic bathroom was stunning. Take time to look around at the architectural details, furnishings and art. It's a splurge and will be worth it to some and overpriced to others. And btw, where else can you watch an adorable family of warthogs carousing on the lawn while you're enjoying tea or a beer on the terrace? We loved it.

We stayed for 2 night to celebrate our honeymoon. We could not have asked for a better experience. We loved the classic decor of the hotel, and we agree new renovations still keep alive the old school charm. The food and drinks service was outstanding. We will be back to celebrate our 10th anniversary (or for our 5th,if my wife have anything to say about it)

The location is amazing, if you ignore the periodic helicopter rides spoiling the roar of the falls. The Hotel is over 115 years old, well maintained byt her age is noticeable. Take the sunset cruise, they inclusive drinks and snacks but its really a small 3 course meal, prepared by a chef on board. The Captain of ours was very knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble. We also had the David Livingstone talk followed by a tour of the falls, far more interesting than doing it alone. You need to accept the big blue rain coats.... you get very wet. And no the falls are not drying up! After that we went to the Lokout Cafe for lunch, again good. But follow advice, it may be close but Elephants and hyenas in the woods, don't be tempted to walk. Sellers wares are all negotiable. We had a complimentary cocktail, aftetnoon tea and 25 min massage - lovely. Little things: The hairdryer socket is nowhere near a mirror, Some rooms enter with a wardrobe that has handles that you can scrap into Had to take laundry to reception, not picked up, Booking wasn't administered from reception to salon, but they accommodated us an hour later. WiFi works, but not great, 4G hard to find outside The Monkeys may steel you tea if you aren't looking The helicopters are a shame but not the hotels fault. The menu is limitednin fine dining, but very good... dress code applies and the pianist is exceptional.
