We stayed 4 nights - had 5 people and 2 rooms
The best thing we experienced at this hotel was the friendliness of the staff. We forgot the baby spoon in dining area and the next morning they came to find us to return it. There was fresh ice water with fruit always available in the lobby.
The mosquitos are the only problem - they are plentiful! While Cleaning of the rooms they should keep outside door shut! Every time you open the door 10 come in!
Breakfast was excellent the pool area is nice - we were there when wind came up and pool was filled with leaves and stems but was quickly cleaned and perfect again.
Their food in the restaurant in the evening was very good as well- we had steak, fish and samosas all very well prepared and service was pleasant
We booked a helicopter tour through the hotel and they were efficient

Stayed: October 2017, travelled with family

We stayed two nights and visited Victoria falls on a day trip. We also went to a game reserve where we got to see white Rhinos!

The breakfast was great.. Rooms were clean and well maintained. There are several restaurants in town which can be easily accessed by taxi. I would recommend this hotel.

The Hotel is great for the business visits . the staff is really friendly. The food is good, Cupachinos -Great!

Overall I can only say it is good. The issue is the location next to the railway. Early Train and late night passing did bother with noise.

The real issue was the mosquitos...yes it is Africa, but you expect from Mariit that the room will be free of mosquitos. I would recommend that staff ensure upon cleaning to ensure all mosquitos are killed and rooms are sprayed -teach them to spray above curtains and dark corners. After killing around 15 mosquitos, the room was great. Nice hot showers and Wifi is good.

Possible Experience and Critic also positive.

stayed for 2 nights while attending a business meeting. The room was comfortable and fresh! The courtyard is breath-taking, lots of water features, hats off to the gardener! it was relaxing to sit in the courtyard area, listening to the sounds of the water fountains.
Breakfast was good, freshly prepared....a plus considering the blistering heat with summer temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius. Was disappointed with the crockery though...It is white china that has become dis-coloured so that it seems as though it was not thoroughly cleaned and honestly a little disgusting!
The staff were very helpful and attentive to clients, which was excellent.

Our stay at Protea Hotel in Livingston was wonderful. The hotel is located in a central location to the falls and national park. The hotel grounds are immaculate. The restaurant on site has a full menu for lunch and dinner at reasonable prices. Our breakfast buffet was bountiful with lots of choices of fresh fruits and pastries, as well as a chef on staff to cook omelets and eggs to order. Our room was comfortable and clean.

Room Tip: Two story hotel without elevators, but the staff helps with luggage so it wasn't a problem.
