Location: It is all about Victoria Falls but Livingstone is nice and there are many other activities - fishing, safari, bungy jumping, helicopter tours .....
Great staff. Great food. Great location and admittance to the Victoria Falls Park is included.

Great location!

A friend convinced me to change to The Royal Livingstone and we were glad we did. Perfect location for walking everywhere. Staff very accommodating - one of the gardeners hiked through the woods to show us where the giraffes were!

Luxury hotel right on the Zambezi river

Posted Jun 24, 2015
Pros: All of the above
Cons: Reception staff didn't seem to want to go out of their way to help us with onward travel arrangements.
Location: All rooms have beautiful views of the river. Falls short walk away. Zimbabwe, bridge all in walking distance from Hotel. Safari in Botswana great.
Brilliant staff, great welcome, wonderful setting, close to the falls, lovely to see wild animals roaming the beautifully kept grounds.

Great location, friendly staff

Posted Mar 7, 2015
Pros: The gardens and water views.
Cons: The rooms could do with a little refresh - still very comfortable, but looking a bit worn in places.
Location: So convenient for visiting the falls and for walking across to Zimbabwe. Convenient for all activities.
Beautiful location for visiting Victoria Falls. The hotel has a lovely peaceful ambience with water views. Staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Rooms could do with a bit of a refresh, but nothing to make the stay unpleasant.

Luxury and comfort

Posted Feb 27, 2015
Pros: Right on river, can see smoke from falls. Peaceful, beautiful setting. Very quiet accomldation.
Only had 24 hours in vic falls, they organised everything to perfection. On arrival they booked us straight in for every activity we wanted to do, and moved us seamlessly between them. Private entrance to falls was cherry on the cake.

Beautifully managed hotel right by the falls

Posted Dec 8, 2014
Pros: Stunning location on the Zambezi next to the falls, beautiful indigenous gardens, calm atmosphere even with tour groups arriving. Feels very special.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Victoria Falls is a short walk away. Lots of activities are also possible on the river (sedate to activity sports). It's a short drive into town
We couldn't fault this hotel. You can sit on a "classical" verandah and watch the falls within manicured gardens. Service is impeccable, friendly and efficient. Our room was beautifully appointed and we certainly felt pampered We used this hotel for a few nights after a long road trip through the Caprivi so this was just the thing. The hotel is literally at the falls so you can just walk around to them (and they have an arrangement so you can visit the site for free). The hotel works to give a touch of the old colonial atmosphere (it isn't an old hotel of course) - but somehow they pull it off - the public spaces are elegant and quiet. The restaurant has a dress code (not too demanding - no shorts and Tshirts...) but this slight formality doesn't make things stuffy. Overall we enjoyed a few days to relax and use the facilities

Fint läge vid floden

Posted Nov 27, 2014
Pros: Läget nära floden med utsikt över djurlivet var fantastiskt. Trevlig personal.
Cons: Vid vårt besök var poolvattnet smutsigt
Location: Lågvatten i oktober-december då syns inte Victoriafallen från Zambiasidan. Å andra sidan kan man bada i Devils pool och forsränna.
Fint läge vid floden med vilda djur i trädgården då hotellet ligger i Victoria falls nationalpark. Vacker lobby i kolonialstil och varmt mottagande av personalen. Stor variation av aktiviteter att anmäla sig till om man önskar att utforska området.

Faultless!

Posted Nov 24, 2014
This really is a 5 Star experience. The quality of the service, accommodation and amenities cannot be bettered in the area. The riverside terrace view is extraordinary and the animals that wander the grounds add to the ambience. Will definitely visit again!

Wenn Vic-Falls, dann hier

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: die Lage ist unbeschreiblich
Cons: die Küche gibt sich alle Mühe, ist gut, aber nicht ganz auf dem Niveau des wirklich tollen Hotels
es mag ein wenig teurer sein, aber die Gischt der Fälle im Sonnenuntergang zu sehen oder morgens ein Zebra, das beim Frühstück vorbei spaziert, entschädigt für alles
