The Vic Falls Rainbow is in a very good location along Parkway Dr. It is very close to 'town' and has good amenities. There is easy access to the falls and to other attractions like golf at Elephant Hills (further down the road) and dinner at the Boma.
The pricing is a bit on the high side for the level at which the hotel is. I would expect prices to be USD50 cheaper on average.
The structure itself is still goo but the furnishings are in need of attention. This is something that is common to most hotels in Zimbabwe, they have been allowed to stagnate in terms of upkeep and decor. the staff do keep it clean though and they are quite friendly. This makes up for the average facilities.
When in Victoria Falls this hotel is a good option to stay in, but it is not in the league of the Elephant Hills, A'Zambezi, or the Kingdom. Nor does it aspire to be. But it can surely be a better hotel.
