This was a pleasant hotel, but we did find it a little overpriced. The location was absolutely excellent, being only 5 minutes from a view of the Zambian side of the Vic falls.
However, our room was tiny. We paid for a family room, but what we got seemed to be the size of a normal double room elsewhere, but with 2 double beds stuffed in. The hotel may have made a mistake, as the housekeeping staff consistently sent us only enough towels for 2 people. The ground floor rooms also do not have mosquito nets. There was some sort of plug in device, but this didn't stop us from being visited by insects in the night. The light switches were also not working properly, and the shower door was missing a small fixture, to keep it closed!
Overall, we found it overpriced for what we got, and would only recommend staying there a day or two to be near the falls.
