We stayed here for two nights on our visit to Victoria Falls. Our room was very good. Clean and with a very comfy bed complete with mosquito net all around. Bathroom recently refurbished. Breakfast was adequate. Good pool. All around is more than three star.

We have accommodation booked for 5th October to the 9th October 2018 and have tried ringing but was put on hold for forever, tried emailing reservation and contacting through facebook but still have got no one contacting me back. Hopefully this works. We have booked 2 rooms as are travelling with children and want to know if you have either renovated family rooms or interconnecting rooms that we can reserve. From reading the reviews about safety I do not feel comfortable leaving my children in a room that is not connected to ours. Looking forward to your reply and our family holiday.
Not sure about having connecting rooms but we are put in a unit next to our friends. Definitely ask for upstairs rooms if you are concerned about safety. On the other hand, I never felt unsafe when visiting Vic Falls.

Are the shuttle service to/from the falls & airport transfers included in the price per night or is it an additional fee?
Refreshing day to you Shuttle services to & from the Falls are free according to a timetable provided by the hotel upon arrival. Outside these times taxis are available. Airport transfers are not included in the price per night meaning its an additional fee.

"Don’t Bother"
"Rooms 4 & 5 are on the ground floor, but quieter enough."
"renovated rooms appear to be in north wing. with single night maybe not relevant. With multiple nights view the room(s) prior to accepting"
"don't accept any room on the lower floor, near the kitchen"
"The west side of the hotel has the view of the smoke. If you listen well, you can hear the thundering waterfall."
