“A good first time experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

I read some of the comments before staying at the Kingdom, most negative about the money only acceptable in US$ and to change small amount only as the refund is in the local currency etc.. My experience was the opposite. Everywhere in Zimbabwe they now use US$ as their local currency, and we have no issues to get our change in US$ as one friendly Zimbabwean said " our local currency is dead and buried long time". So no issues at all.
The hotel is nice and big, however, our room faced a tall tree, so have no view at all - be specific with your room location. The breakfast was good, but not really the buffet for US$27.The falls is beautiful - wow! I don't regret going there, the 10 minutes walk is safe on the main road, as the short cut you can come across dangerous animal too! Very friendly people, the police are seen around and very helpful - well done Zimbabwean.

Room Tip: Be specific with room type due to many trees in the view

Beautiful grounds, walking distance to falls, great ambiance, friendly staff. Beds hard but some people like that. Food was adequate at buffets. Note they have policy that you can't charge to your room, everything has to be paid separately. Not a big deal, but can be unclear. Phenomenal location, recommend this hotel! Take the Zambezi sunset cruise. And don't miss a drive thru Hwange Natl Park.

We stayed at The Kingdom for 3 nights while on a visit to Vic Falls. The hotel itself is beautiful. The finishes and furniture and the staff was very friendly. Our bathroom although clean looked like it could use some silicone on the edges and perhaps some new tiles. We only had breakfast there and from the breakfast meals we decided against having anything further. The food was not nice at all. But the restuarant has a great atmosphere. The location is great as you are only a walk away from the Falls.

Certainly the best hotel in Victoria Falls! Amazing. It looks like you are in Las Vegas. A casino, some stores, a pizza and hamburger restaurant in the Casino complex. Breakfast very good, considering the region, service nice and friendly, breakfast restaurant with a view to the swimming pool. The room is very comfortable.

Room Tip: I have stayed in the main buiding. You mihgt not have the view to the falls, but you would walk less...

I enjoyed almost everything about this hotel. Nice food, friendly staff, large area to walk around, swim pool, night show, high speed internet.
The bad thing is that there was myriad number of mosquitos in my room! The room was on the first floor close to the kinds of pond (if I may say so). And I do not recommend it at all! The other bad thing is there was no mosquito hook on my bed. But I must say they bring spray very quickly, right after you make a call.
Location is very nice. The closest hotel to the VicFalls, easy to get to ATM (if such a place you really appreciate when it is close). In general, i think it is a nice hotel, but you need to choose your room carefully.
