Reviewed yesterday NEW

we stayed at the Protea on a group visit to the falls. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and catered for all of our differing requirements. The rooms were specious and well maintained, although there was a high level of mosquitos in the room. I suspect this is the norm and a very effective can of spray was provided,...

Basic room and basic facilities. Only one restaurant, pool is really tiny but the Staff was wonderful, always smiling ready to help. Very well located, lots of restaurants around, Staff was helpful in calling a taxi always. Not very far from the Falls or other activities. The activities desk was very pricey, better to book directly.

We stayed at the Protea Hotel Livingstone between the 10-13 February 2017. The Hotel is located about 12 kilometres from the Livingstone International Airport. The moment we arrived at the hotel , the warm hospitality and friendly staff was an absolute marvel. They made us feel comfortable and were always courteous and helpful. The rooms were large enough with a...

I booked this hotel for my family, and my wife, after reviewing Trip Advisor, asked why I booked this hotel. So I was a bit nervous that it would be tired and run down. Quite the opposite. The hotel is wonderful. Sure, it's not right on the Zambezi river and has no view of the Falls, but the rooms are...

Great hotel. The restaurant and bar is great value for money. The staff are very helpful and nothing is to much trouble. There is an independent travel and activity booking shop in the reception area, which we found very helpful.

My wife and I stayed at the Protea Livingstone and were pleased with the hotel. The service was outstanding and the location was very close to Victoria Falls. Food was really good and very reasonable. We would definitely stay there again.

We booked for the unbeatable price and the Marriott brand. We were thrilled with the contemporary, welcoming lobby, the excellent breakfast and helpful, kind staff. We booked adventures directly there and our room was clean with comfortable beds. Would stay here again!

Stayed here for a business trip where we have a two day event, and a lot of guests, so needed a cost effective solution. Protea Hotel is fine in Livingstone. Nicer than the majority of Protea Hotels I have stayed in in South Africa, but still an average, cost conscious hotel. Only a short taxi ride down to the falls,...

I had a wonderful stay. Bed was so comfy, the shower worked, enough warm water. Service was excellent and the breakfast was very good. The TV worked. The room had a small fridge, I loved that, enabled me to chill drinks in my room instead of having to call room service every now and then. Definitely coming back.

We found the overall stay at this hotel to be good. There are 2 different sections, the hotel accomodation and also self sufficient apartments. When staying at the hotel, buffet breakfast is included which is good. The only negative I had was the customer service. We had previously book the accomodation at a special discounted rate, however the service attendant...
