          This is a beautiful hotel in a splendid location - High Afternoon Tea was somewhat disappointing, no bone china, but the rest couldn't be faulted. The staff are so pleasant.

          This is a beautiful hotel. It is British Colonial style all the way. Our room is a suite with separate sleeping area and living area. Very large and comfortable. African decorations abound with game trophies on all the walls.

          The restaurants are superb and are even familiar with gluten free requirements.

          The staff is helpful and very friendly with a smile and good morning or evening.

The hotel fully exceeded my expectations with its amazing views and décor. The staff was quite friendly and attentive to our needs. Definitely a place to come back to!

          I often visited Victoria Falls hotel several times and my stay was always wonderful
          .
          Known as "the grand old lady of the Falls", The hotel is situated on a World Heritage site surrounded by lush gardens and rolling lawns and is just a ten minute walk from the Victoria Falls. This is the one hotel that can truly claim to be unique.

          This is a wonderful hotel with a great restaurant and grounds and only a short walk from town and the falls. The rooms were a bit small but nicely appointed with a very comfortable bed. If you want colonial charm and comfort, the Victoria Falls Hotel is the place to go. We would definitely recommend it.

          This grand old Hotel has seen better days. We stayed here because we wanted to see the views from the hotel, and these were spectacular. So too were the sounds of the Falls. And we found the statue of Dr Livingstone, not far from the Hotel.

          Thursday 1st September 2016: How much can you fit into one day? Well we have done a pretty good job so far. We leave at 8 and go to the Falls first for a 2 km walk - most of the Falls are in Zambia, but Zimbabwe has the views of them. It is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. There is a statue of David Livingstone who discovered the …
