We stayed here after a problem with our reservation meant that we could not be accommodated their sister hotel the Thorntree. Because the problem was theirs they went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, including upgrading our room to a suite with a Jacuzzi. The room was fabulous, with 2 balconies, a living room, bar area, guest bathroom and large bedroom and bathroom and yes a jacuzzi in the middle of the room. Our kids stayed in a standard double room and it was also very nice, a good size with its own balcony and spa like bathroom. It seemed that everyone in the hotel knew of our situation and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening cruise on the Zambezi. The cruise included unlimited drinks and appetizer type snacks. It was a wonderful relaxing way to spend our last day of holidays before beginning the journey home. We had lunch and dinner at the hotel and found the food to be very good, a good selection and very tasty. The hotel is in a lovely setting with a good sized patio area and infinity pool right by the river.

On arrival the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The place is right on the river and is very pretty. Our rooms were lovely and clean and had a fab view. We did the sunset cruise and it was amazing! We saw hippos, crocs and elephant. The pool is great but the water is absolutely freezing! I thought the food was quite expensive but you don't really have any other option, it was good though. I would definitely return here.

Worst value for money ever experienced (staying almost every week on hotels for business). Premium prices ($500 per night) for poor/average hospitality. Sample list:
1. Shuttle from airport was late
2. No mosquito net for additional bed (needed GM intervention)
3. Dirty rooms (including the fridge)
4. Dinner buffet at cafeteria level
5. An hour wait for simple lunch order
6. Extra wrong charges

What a fabulous place to celebrate the end of our safari, lovely rooms, great service,nice food.
The staff were very attentive and friendly. The buffet meals were interesting with a good mix of different dishes, it was good to try local delicacies. The staff were willing to ensure that we could still get breakfast after an early game drive that finished late.
The shuttlebus drivers were very accommodating in getting us to the falls and into Livingston, William was very helpful in suggesting places to see and assisting us through to the Zimbabwe side.
