This hotel is quite a landmark, the first hotel to be built by the Victoria Falls. The elegant building dates back to the turn of the 20th century and its colonial charm combines well with 21st century comforts, making it a popular choice for those visiting the famous Falls.

As soon as you step through the wide doorway you're transported back to a bygone era. High ceilings, long corridors, elegantly proportioned rooms, walls covered in paintings and photographs evoke an old world atmosphere. There are no fewer than three restaurants to choose between, offering indoor and outdoor dining, not forgetting high tea served on the Stanley Terrace each afternoon. There are lounges, reading rooms and a library, while outside you'll find the lovely swimming pool, a great way to cool off on a hot day.

The grandeur of the building is matched by the beautifully maintained gardens, where you'll catch glimpses of spray from the falls and can wander down to the entrance of the rainforest in a matter of minutes. The hotel is also close to Victoria Falls town and staying here you'll have access to all the many activities on offer.

There are several accommodation options, from standard rooms up to the royal suite. Though they vary is size and facilities, all are air conditioned, have an en-suite bathroom, satellite TV, phone and safe, and you'll be able to start the day with a cup of tea of coffee, brought by the attentive staff.

Client Rating for Zimbabwe 5/5 from 3 reviews

Fantastic colonial hotel with wonderful views. The staff were very attentive we were treated to old fashioned luxury. The only downside was the swimming pool which was very cold.
