Great hotel. The restaurant and bar is great value for money. The staff are very helpful and nothing is to much trouble. There is an independent travel and activity booking shop in the reception area, which we found very helpful.

My wife and I stayed at the Protea Livingstone and were pleased with the hotel. The service was outstanding and the location was very close to Victoria Falls. Food was really good and very reasonable. We would definitely stay there again.

We booked for the unbeatable price and the Marriott brand. We were thrilled with the contemporary, welcoming lobby, the excellent breakfast and helpful, kind staff. We booked adventures directly there and our room was clean with comfortable beds. Would stay here again!

Stayed here for a business trip where we have a two day event, and a lot of guests, so needed a cost effective solution. Protea Hotel is fine in Livingstone. Nicer than the majority of Protea Hotels I have stayed in in South Africa, but still an average, cost conscious hotel. Only a short taxi ride down to the falls,...

I had a wonderful stay. Bed was so comfy, the shower worked, enough warm water. Service was excellent and the breakfast was very good. The TV worked. The room had a small fridge, I loved that, enabled me to chill drinks in my room instead of having to call room service every now and then. Definitely coming back.

We found the overall stay at this hotel to be good. There are 2 different sections, the hotel accomodation and also self sufficient apartments. When staying at the hotel, buffet breakfast is included which is good. The only negative I had was the customer service. We had previously book the accomodation at a special discounted rate, however the service attendant...
