Gerties Lodge Victoria Falls
Reviewed April 10, 2013

we enjoyed the space of the lodge as we have two boys who stayed downstairs (we were upstairs) and who could swim in the pool that was just outside the room. breakfast was good and the staff are helpful. only downside is the need to take a taxi in to town for the childrens dinner.

More than adequate accommodation with helpful pleasant staff. It's a short journey from the town centre but within easy walking distance. Taxi services were easy to use and the drivers all know where to find Gerties. We stayed 5 days - good value for money relative to other over priced accommodation elsewhere.

Gerties Lodge is a great little place to stay very tranquil and relaxing. The gardens that immediately surround the lodge are beautiful. This is the perfect place to stay in Victoria Falls if you don't like the large busy touristy type lodges. Lilian and her staff were very welcoming and friendly. Lilian took time to help my and friends and I with our activities in Victoria Falls. The evening meals served to us were superb much better tasting than Mama Africa and Boma. The chef is an excellent cook.
I would fully recommend staying at Gerties Lodge if you are planning to go to Victoria Falls.

This lodge is more like staying at a guesthouse than a hotel. It has very nice garden that is surrounded by the guest rooms. The rooms in the front are a little nicer than the ones in the back. Rooms are basic, but comfortable. Rooms also include a very nice breakfast, served in the open air dining area at the front of the lodge. The lodge is located in a quiet residential area of town, and expect about a 25-30min walk into town, 30-40 min walk to the falls and about 1 hour walk to the Zambian side of the falls. The staff are friendly (in the evening we talked and watched TV together) and were very helpful with tips and information about visiting the falls. They also have on site laundry service. No internet. TV only available in common area.

Expected a little less dated experiance.... The family room did not live up to my expectations, the matresses on the bed were terrible; leaving me with an excrutiating 'bad back' for 3 week and the lowered ceilings and dated soft furnishing left us feeling claustrophobic. On a positive note, the staff were friendly and provided us with a good breakfast and cheerful smiles.

15-18 April 2011 -
Lillian has this place running smoothly. We had a 2-level 6-bed thatched rondaval with a small lounge for the two of us. Bedrooms were large but basic with a double and 2 singles in one and 2 singles in another. The bathroom and shower were average. Very rustic surrounds with a swimming pool. Our first night we saw a herd of Elephant at 3AM walking down the road - Lillian said this is unusual. Brighton is an excellent cook and the staff were wonderful. Our driver James (afrolove@yoafrica[dot]com) was wonderful and very helpful. Slow dial Up Internet access available although not tried. I'd definitely stay again.
