Beautiful place to stay”

this is a wonderful hotel. It is about midrange price for the better hotels. Location is perfect. it is walking distance to the entrace to the Falls. There are two ATM's right next to the hotel for easy access to cash if needed. Downtown is also right there. The hotel is beautiful clean and the food is excellent. The rooms are clean and the views are to the outdoors. Animals often come right up to the lawn and can be viewed from your balcony. The staff is awesome. It was a wonderful 5 day stay.

Exquisite location and beautiful grounds”

We liked our stay very much, especially the room balcony from which we could see spray of Victoria Falls. The Cassia Restaurant is exceptional, far beyond the norm for hotel restaurants. The grounds are beautifully appointed and unpretentious-looking. Location is excellent, close to shopping bazaars. Staff is professional and attentive. Only concern, I think at $500+ a night, the hotel ought to have provided mosquito nets on the beds. This is a malaria risk area and there were a few mosquitoes in the room. A net, always available in far less expensive accommodations in this part of Africa, would have enabled us to sleep better.

Definitely come back to this hotel again. ”

This hotel is in strategic location, close everything. Staffs are so friendly and helpful. The hotel is very nice which remind me to the peroid of 100 years ago. The room is not so big, but designed very freindly user. You will be seen the wind animals playing to each other just out side yr room evey moring. The breakfast is buffet a’lacarte which many choices to be selected. The hotel is walking distance to the Vic falls you may see the misth and here the sound of water falls from yr breakfast table. This hotel is one of few large hotel in this area, my wife and my four years old boy love here very much. We will defenitely stay in this hotel again, if we have chance to go to Victoria falls. The cost is in high side but we think it is goid for the valuse of money. We are strongly recommend this hotel.
