Final stop a luxurious experience, a little more impersonal that the lodges, but due to size of the organisation. Restaurant meals were particularly good, and another discovery of a hairdryer in the room!!!

Great place to arrive and decompress. Waking up to hippos honking on the Mighty Zambezi, and zebra grazing on the grass outside was a pretty amazing way to start the day.

It was a real treat to check in there, and indulge in the luxury after being on the mobile safari. The location was fantastic on the banks of the mighty Zambezi, so close to the Falls. We felt that the constant buzz of the helicopters and microlites detracted from the peace of the location. We enjoyed the sunset cruise on the River Queen

Really enjoyed our time here. This hotel offered everything we wanted. The location close to the falls was spectacular. I did feel a bit like everyone wanted a tip but when I realized 10% was added to every bill I felt better. However they still have an overwhelming amount of staff there that is hoping/expecting additional tips every where you turn.

Simply stunning hotel and grounds. My only complaint was missing seeing any zebra there! I do think that the travel info should include something about traveling into Zimbabwe to see the Falls. There isn't much to see from the Zambia side, especially as low as the water is right now.

A nice respite after safari. After the dust of safari this was a great place to spend a few days before heading home. A low thatched colonial style building- even serve tea on Royal Albert! Rooms have the usual fit out- flat screen, tea/coffee, Molton Brown in bathroom. Good set up of linked rooms to create a family suite. All rooms have direct view of the mighty Zambezi river. Large unheated outdoor pool with direct view of the spray from the Livingstone falls. Food- French chef- delicious. Could walk easily to the falls from the hotel- best early morning or sunset. Must do- trip to Livingstone Island- get to walk right up to the falls edge (held by a guide) and swim in the water. Also 30min helicopter trip through the gorges (like being in a movie!) and over the falls. Hotel in part of the national park so zebra, impala monkeys roam freely.

Beautiful setting right near Victoria Falls. Very luxurious. Plenty of cool activities available. Only downside was we found the staff less hospitable than in South Africa.
