  • 8.0.Very good

    Very nice place with cute little meercats running around everywhere. Overall, the place is in good condition and the staff are very nice. Only downside is that breakfast at the restaurant is quite expensive for the variety and food that is provided.

    Staff were very nice and the service was great. There was some small construction work going on which made it noisy at times. There is a tourist office attached to the hotel which was convenient to book activities and shuttle services. The hotels bus service to the falls was convenient and reliable. The spa was ok only - while the ladies did a good job, they allowed 3 men (not sure who they were) to come and sit in the spa, which made it slightly uncomfortable to get treatment while they were just sitting and watching

    I got very lucky! Due to lack of tourists, I was upgraded to their sister hotel, A'Zambezi River Lodge, which is right on the Zambezi. Gorgeous property, fantastic service and food. Elephants, hippos and baboons right outside your room!

    Staff were friendly and efficient even while holiday makers were being evacuated in droves. I hope this lovely hotel and its staff manage while we’re not visiting. I’ll definitely stay again when all this global chaos is over.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Poor value for money

    Booked for 3 days' stay. Hotel staff seem to lack leadership. Hotel seems to lack management. Considering what they charge, the offering represents poor value for money. Inadequate lighting in rooms for reading. Very little general info available for tourists.

    Nice room, pricey amenities.

    The room was nice. However, the price for breakfast changed every time we asked, from $20 to $28 per person for what looked like a regular breakfast. $28 can buy you breakfast for 6-8 people at the local store. They also wanted $6 per kg for laundry service.

  • 6.0.Good

    not value for money, bad customer service

    It stated clearly that the 2 rooms will have bathtubs when I booked and there is no bathtub at all in any of the room. When I asked to change the room the lady in front desk (ms future) was not helpful gave us a hard time and we were in hurry for a tour program in the morning, so we just gave in. The air cond is Not cold in the first 2 nights in room no. 36, but they sent someone to repair. It was ok on the 3rd night. There was no towel in room 38 after they cleaned it, and when we requested for the towel, it took quite a while to arrive, after 2-3 reminder calls. Also, there was no bathroom mat too on the last night of our stay too, we didn’t bother to request anymore.

    The location was great. The rooms and staff were nice The spa was nice. The room didn’t have a refrigerator but it had a place for one. We thought the restaurant was way overpriced for the quality. The breakfast, had we booked it, was $25.00 a person. A light lunch was $17.00. Overall it was a nice stay.
