My favorite for this hotel is the Sunday brunch, $25 per person and worth every penny. Turn of the century china and setting, fabulous service and old world charm makes this a sunday morning best bet if in Vic Falls.

My husband is a picky eater with a small appetite so we weren't likely to do justice to the meal but felt that eating there was part of the stay. The service is excellent & the surroundings very pleasant but it is not Michelin star.

I was flabbergasted at the quality of my visit! The service was excellent and the view just metres away is unmatched. Even if it's just for an afternoon - the warthogs on the lawn, the birds chirping, it's like coming home.

The wines are not cheap. Work on US$30 per bottle to be sure of your accounting. So, $50 pp plus $15 pp wine give you approximately $65 pp.

No. If you just wear slacks and a button down long sleeve shirt, that will suffice. But you can't overdress either, so wear better if you have it.

Yes, I believe it is rated four star - it is a lovely but very old hotel 100plus years. So, expect some graceful aging. The service is exceptional and the rooms are lovely with fantastic views. It reminded us of some of... More
