We stayed the Victoria Hotel for one night before traveling further. We arrived early and were able to access our room early. The room was very modern and comfortable, the bed cozy and the shower excellent. Breakfast had a great variety of options. Booking tours was effortless ad walking to the Victoria Falls from the hotel was easy and safe. Loved the colonial feel.

Superb hotel room (suite) obtained at a very reasonable price for the standard. Very good breakfast and tea with scones and other cakes. Very good location and superb garden from which you can see the mist of Victoria Falls and the bridge. Warthog ( warthog in the garden). To test at least one night in Victoria Falls. Lockout restaurant located not far away with a beautiful view of the canyon.

Staying at the Victoria Falls Hotel built in 1904, you can see the water mist rising from the Victoria Bridge and the waterfall. I like [yeah] [yeah] but I can’t add an extra bed. I can only open an extra room for the child

It is indeed a century-old luxury hotel built by British colonists. It shows aristocratic temperament everywhere, low-key a**osphere, thoughtful and meticulous service. The black brother guides you to a special living room for check-in, and sends you wet wipes and lemonade. The back garden of the hotel is facing the waterfall bridge. The most wonderful thing is to enjoy the mist rising from the waterfall while drinking English afternoon tea.

I ate breakfast and dinner here for three days. Despite the epidemic, they did a good job. The key is that the room rate includes meals, excluding drinks, and the service attitude is good. Don't wear shorts for mosquitoes outside at night and be more careful of malaria

Having read various reviews we weren’t expecting the hotel and experience to be as good as we hoped but we were pleasantly surprised! We stayed for x2 nights in a Stables Signature Wing Double Room, prior to embarking on Rovos Rail (that’s a different story) . We found the accommodation to be to an old but very acceptable standard. However, what made the hotel was the charm and character of the building coupled with the friendliness and attentiveness of the entire team. Maybe our experience was a little unique but I would like to personally recognise Christian who went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. Prior to arriving at the hotel, I experienced an old sports back injury making walking and any movement very painful. Within minutes of checking in and without being promoted, Christian took the initiative to start implementing measures to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Within a couple of hours he arranged for a doctor to visit, and the following morning he had sourced a physiotherapist who visited on two occasions to help rectify my back. As a result of Christian going above, and beyond, I was able to participate in all planned activities including visiting Devils Pool. Having stayed in numerous 5*+ hotels all around the world, Christian’s level of personal care and attentiveness compared with the best. We also found the restaurant teams to be good with a special mention needing to be given to Simba and his colleagues for the fine dining experience they provide. However, I think we were lucky as we were the only guests during the entire sitting on the night in question. Based on our experience, we’d certainly recommend The Victoria Falls Hotel as hopefully what we experienced wasn’t a one off!

We stayed two nights and enjoyed the sighseeing - Sunset cruise on the Zambezi, walk and helicopter ride to see the Falls, and walked around the small town. - Room was refurbished tastefully but very small. - Breakfast at Jungle Junction - beautiful setting and casual feel. - Dinner at The Livingstone Room was wonderful - Huge restaurant which used to be a train workshop and pianist played the grand piano throughout the evening. - Buffet dinner at Jungle Junction with music and dance performances by three ethnic groups were most enjoyable. - Reception area was the only area that need improvement - the young staff members seem new, not very friendly or welcoming. - Pool area was relaxing and we also loved sitting on the sun lounges under the trees overlooking the Victoria Falls Bridge and mist from the Falls in the distance.

We only had 1 night at the VFH as it was the termination point for our Rovos Rail excursion (see separate review). I do however, wish we had booked a couple of nights here as it is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. The checkin process was very straightforward (although our room wasn’t ready it didn’t matter for we grabbed a couple of coffees and sat on the sun beds on the lawn). All the staff were very helpful and polite. Had a nice light lunch in the Stanley Rooms on the terrace, while dinner was taken in the Jungle restaurant, complete with traditional African dances. The views are stunning with fantastic views of the spray from the Vic Falls and the bridge. You can spend hours watching the Wart Hogs on the lawns. The monkeys can be a bit of a pain so don’t feed them under any circumstances. Our room was very well presented with a very comfortable bed, great outlook over the small fountain on one of the many lawns and lovely bathroom. Although we didn’t walk down to the Vic Falls (had seen them 2 years earlier), it is within walking distance should you fancy it. All in all a lovely short stay and a hotel I would definitely look to book if I go back to Zimbabwe.
