The property is nice and the location great. The Victorian style hotel makes you feel in the 50's. Rooms and bathrooms are a bit small. The location is very convenient to visit the Victoria Falls. The breakfast is good too.

We stayed here for 4 nights in July 2016, the hotel and its facilities were up to its five star rating for Africa. However the service was poor...dirty glass and towel found in room upon arrival, 4 members of staff in the bar, ignoring ourselves and other guests at the bar for several minutes whilst chatting between themselves. Ground staff... More

Spectacular views and only a short walk to see the breathtaking Victoria Falls The hotel benefits from being within a nature reserve so a diverse wildlife to view close up and personal - monkeys, zebra, giraffe wandering freely around the grounds set against the backdrop of the Zambezi river and the continuous sound of 600 million titres of water a...

The hotel has a dramatic location near the Victoria Falls but the atmosphere is a little stiff. My family enjoyed the atmosphere at the neighboring hotel better and we ended up eating over there for most dinners. The breakfast buffet at the Livingston caters to almost every taste or pallet. The staff was friendly and accommodating but you felt a... More

From the minute we arrived to the time we left, it was a fabulous visit. The huge breakfast that is included with your stay is amazing. WE wanted to do the high tea, but it was extremely expensive, so we opted out. The grounds are exquisite and the staff is amazing. We did do the MonkeyTree dinner out on the... More

Nice hotel and without a doubt the best option for access to Victoria Falls. Very colonial/safari zoo feel. We visited at the end of our honeymoon in July, so winter time. Days were sunny and warm/dry, evenings were quite chilly so bring trousers and a sweater if you visit mid-year. Staff were polite, service was good and bad, overall OK.... More

This hotel has the advantage of location - right above the Victoria Falls and the falls are walking distance, though it is easier to take a shuttle to the neighbouring sister hotel and walk from there. There are Zebra, antelope, monkeys and giraffe within the hotel grounds and the grounds and gardens are well watered and tended. The central plaza... More

We booked this hotel for its legendary 5 star service and its proximity to the Falls. Whilst it is only a brisk 8-10 minute walk to the Falls, I felt the hotel lacked in other areas and failed to deliver a 5 star experience. The check in process was lovely especially after an exhausting trip (we were all given a... More

This is five star. You are greeted by the valet staff, Pitt hat and all the ceremony of a chorus of staff. The facility is impressive and having views to the Zambesi makes this hotel. Staff were always helpful, the food excellent and the views from our room was brilliant. We were fortunate to have 2 zebras outside our room... More
