This place has an excellent location on the Zambezi river 400m from the Victoria falls it has a lot of period decor and you are treated like royalty. Slight draw back was I asked for coffee to be put in the room and it didn't happen not good when you are paying a premium for you say I will follow...

This is the ultimate location to stay and experience the Falls at its best. Glorious sunsets on the deck and the sound of the Falls is awesome. Easy access to the Falls. Take a good read to enjoy poolside and experience zebra, giraffe, buck etc. casually walking / grazing in the hotel grounds.

This is a 7 star location with a 5 star hotel. The rooms are large and all with River views. The Hotel staff are good and very helpful. It is extremely safe with security located everywhere. It should have a 5 star rating but sadly the restaurant service does not measure up to the quality of this Hotel.

Great location for the falls and other experiences. Lots of bugs in the room though and too slow to receive something from housekeeping. Food was ok. Bar staff not so friendly down on the deck. Love the animals walking around

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. Buildings are superb, well designed with wide verandas, brass lights and a certain colonial feel ( in a good way ). The rooms and bathrooms are also very well appointed. The pool area is great. Excellent access to the Victoria Falls just across the road from the hotel grounds. Our butler was...

The setting and building are magical. Walking up to the lobby that overlooks the Zambezi brings a smile to the face of even the weariest traveler. The first time you see the zebras roam in front of the great river with the sunset behind them, you will feel positively transported. I LOVE that the hotel carries Molton Brown products, and...
