We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a 3 week holiday in South Africa. I cannot fault it, the room was more than adequate with a comfortable bed , good aircon and a really powerful shower .There was a huge choice on offer for breakfast. Snacks at the bar were good but only available until 5pm. We didnt bother with the buffet dinner as we didn`t want three courses and it was rather expensive. Room service had more options like curry pizza and burgers and was more reasonably priced. Bar prices were not bad on the whole,,,beer was 14 Kwacha ( £1.75) for a 330ml bottle and cocktails started at £3.50. The swimming pool was clean and there were plenty of sun loungers and clean towels available. The staff were always courteous and helpful. The hotel has its own access to the falls and you book in and out at a little " guard post" . The first part of the falls are 5 minutes from the hotel and you stay dry. Venture any further and you will get soaked as the spray can be likened to monsoon rains. You can hire ponchos for 5 Kwacha which will give reasonable protection down to your shins so don`t wear expensive shoes. The paths are good so sandals or crocs are ok. Wrap your camera in waterproof bags.All in all a great stay.
