Good Hotel in Prime Position on Zambesi River

Posted Sep 15, 2015
Pros: The location, the accommodation and the staff.
Cons: The restaurant menu and some heating for the pool.
Location: Prime location in extensive grounds with direct private access to the Falls
Excellent staff. Excellent accommodation. Grounds full of wildlife, including elephants and zebras. Good food. Lovely swimming pool, but very cold.

Pros: Location - location - location. Very fine staff.
Cons: Nothing.
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.
