The hotel reminds me of soviet architecture, there may have been some involvement in planning and building. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast. Dinner was also good at the restaurant. Nice view from the hill. Not direct view of the...

This was my third time staying at the great elephant hills hotel and it continues to improve. This time around everything was just on point and of course the welcome face towel and drink! The staff is cooperative and very helpful. I bet you, I got more than the value of my dollar!

Generally, the hotel is in good shape. However, the room I was accommodated in needed some attention. The toilet waste pipe was leaking. One of the toilets close to the conference room we used had a broken pan-seat. This gave me the impression that the facility is due for some touch-up.

Situated of a hill overlooking the Zambezi and Livingstone, this is an older hotel (like most in Victoria Falls), but very well maintained. Huge grounds include large swimming pools, tennis- and golf courts, own shop and wellness center. I would find it ideal for larger groups while you might feel a little “lost” when alone or as a couple. Staff...
