Very happy visit nice pool with swimup bar. Only problem was the time it took for the water to get hot Just need to let it run long enough to get to you from what is apparently a pretty remote source. Would definitely stay again

Room was large and good standard. The room was also maintained regularly to a good standard. The breakfast was disappointing and you got better value at the Africa cafe in town. The pool was clean but small if the hotel was busy. The shuttle bus...More

The hotel is run down with much need of renovation, food atrocious, staff incompetent. Location is out of the way, “Salesmen” harass you as you walk down the road from town. I would never haven chosen this hotel, a tour operator did. RMore

Not sure about having connecting rooms but we are put in a unit next to our friends. Definitely ask for upstairs rooms if you are concerned about safety. On the other hand, I never felt unsafe when visiting Vic Falls.
