Dave C

"Great room, food pricey but excellent. "

Sally Thorburn
"This hotel is one of the best we have stayed at anywhere in the world. The levels of comfort, service and cuisine are superlative and the historic building, gardens and pool are utterly immaculate. We hesitated about bumping up our budget to stay here and we are so, so glad we did. Apart from the hotel itself, the location is spectacular - it is the only hotel inside the park on the Brazilian side, and staying here means that you can enjoy dawn and dusk with the Falls literally to yourself. We watched thousands of swifts roosting under the waterfalls at dusk and trogons calling just feet away from us at dawn. A day trip to the Argentinian side gives a very different perspective of the many waterfalls and a thrillingly close-up view of the Devils Throat - go early to beat the crowds."
Kim Bates
"Beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. We could not fault it in any way. Great service and all the staff were very polite and friendly. Excellent food and a good choice which catered for our dietary requirements (wine rather pricey) . A large swimming pool with plenty of very comfortable loungers and attentive staff who regularly provided cooling towels and free drinks. Certainly the best hotel we stayed in, but then it was the only 5 star hotel on our trip and as such the most expensive."
John David Blake
"Everything we expected and more. Similar to Vic Falls Hotel. Especially good is the fact that you have the Park to yourself before 9am and after 6pm. We spent hours at dawn and dusk on the road mammal and birdspotting. Strangly enough we never met any other guests doing the same.Maybe we are just different !"
Caroline Moore
"Very high standard of accomodation and good service even though I checked in at 2am. The location right next to the falls is worth it as you can visit before the park opens and the crowds arrive. It is expensive though. "
