The wifi didn't reach further than the reception, which was a dissapointment. The restaurant was very simple and we only ate there once. Breakfast was ok. The whole atmosphere was one of a hotel that had seen better days. The room was boring, small tv, few channels, no wifi.

This hotel was chosen to be assembly and relaxation point for all the wedding guests coming from near and far. All the rooms were booked out and the staff dedicated to serve our needs, for the duration of the stay ... 10 days . The actual wedding took place at a nearby resort. The staff was really helpful and friendly. On our arrival at 2:00 am, the service from the staff was excellent. They quickly organized the luggage and room keys and led us to our allotted rooms. The luggage was delivered about five minutes afterwards. The room was adequate for our needs, double bed with a beautifully decorated mosquito net, clean and well laid out, with A/C , small fridge, modern flat screen TV and a functioning safe. Wi-Fi.is free but works best in the lobby area. The bathroom was typical with shower Jacuzzi tub, sink and toilet. However the toile was swarming with mosquitoes, hence the need for the net. . I enjoyed all the meals that were served although as expected they were different from the traditional western dishes.The hotel location is a plus since it is next to a game park and if you are lucky you can watch elephants strolling on the front lawn in early morning and late afternoon Also it is about a twenty minute drive to the famous Victoria Falls. The hotel has a swim up pool bar that was being renovated and not in use. In fact the hotel is showing its age and it needs a lot of maintenance work to bring it back to its glory days. The hotel rooms are designed as 3 unit cabanas spread over the property and together with a well manicured grounds with flowers and trees the whole atmosphere is one of tranquillity until nighttime.Being located close to the main building has the advantage of everything being close at hand. The disadvantage is that any activity around the main building is telegraphed into the bedroom making it difficult to sleep. There are big gaps above and below the front door that let the music and the mosquitoes and other bugs. On the whiteness scale the bathroom linens comes in around 6-7 on a 10 point scale. Only the shower was used and many times during showering, the water pressure will drop leaving only a fast drip to complete your shower. In conclusion I give the staff a 9 out of 10 for their dedication and service.

Stayed here for a conference. The conference facilities are adequate with really good meals. Breakfasts are standard and boring and the pub area part of the dining area with very little atmosphere. The rooms are clean and acceptable with mosquito nets and are located in units of three spread throughout a luscious garden that creates an "in the bush" feeling. The hotel is located on the edge of town towards the Vic Falls which is not necessarily the best position but right at the entrance to the game park and walking distance from the launching area of cruise boats. The staff is really friendly and helpful.

Stayed a couple of days before a conference in the same hotel. No mosquitoes in my room despite lack of net. Staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Good food especially the fish! Pool was being redone - looked as if it would be good once it was finished.

The hotel is in a nice location but that is where the positives of the hotel end. The hotel is very old and outdated, the rooms are not cleaned properly and the towels and sheets come back from cleaning with brown spots on them. Mosquitos are a big problem. The staff are average and reasonably polite. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
