Very reasonable, clean rooms with a terrific location. You can walk to several restaurants, Shop Rite, Hungry Lion, ATM and many shops are across the street. There is a drug store down the street as well as other restaurants. The breakfast was included with our private rooms and was fantastic! They were very gracious and helpful. The outdoor sitting area by the pool was terrific and they worked to keep the bugs down by spraying. This was super helpful since we went to a nearby hotel for a meal and the flies and bugs were overwhelming. The air conditioned rooms were very nice, albeit small. They were just what we needed after touring and sightseeing all day. Drinks are reasonable and the bar is generally well stocked.

I would never have chosen this place by just seeing the gate. The inside of the lodge is wonderful. The rooms are basic - no tv... - they are clean and comfortable. You can chose your room according to the price you want to pay. There are just beds in a shared room for backpackers, private rooms with 2 bunk for 4 people with fans, a basic room with ac and a deluxe larger room with ac. There is a shared communal kitchen if you want to fix your own meals. Shoprite is across the street if you need supplies. All the rooms face the wonderful garden designed grounds with pretty flowers and plants. The pool is clean and there is a shallower area for younger kids. The basil cafe is the restaurant on location. Breakfast is free for private rooms. You can order lunch at the restaurant and free pancakes are served at 15 hours each day. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay again and recommend them to others.

My trip to Livingstone was largely unplanned. But the staff at Fawlty helped me set up excursions I was interested in, and was a central location to anywhere I needed to be. Comfy and reasonably priced too.

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We are so delighted, especially because reviews are few and far between at the moment, because fewer people travelling, due to the pandemic. I am so glad we were able to help you pull your impromptu trip together and am thrilled you had such a lovely time. Thanks again for taking time to review us. Wit best wishes

I arrived at Fawlty Towers early on 28th April without a booking, I had left my previous booked accommodation after the first night as it was not very nice. From the moment I arrived Miriam was very helpful in showing me a room, and negotiating a very good rate for me. Miriam looked after me, I am a solo traveller so it is not easy to book activities, I gave her a list of what I wanted to do and she planned and organised it all for me There was even a situation where my Walking Safari was cancelled by the company, they neither informed Miriam or myself. It was cancelled as their other clients cancelled which meant I was solo, which they don’t accommodate. Miriam very kindly managed to get them to take me, as she knew how very upset I was by the situation, as she was as well, she felt she had let me down which of course she had not, it was not her fault. Miriam is exceptional with guests, her customer service, care and attention to detail is superb, she is an Angel always with a smile on her face, and a happy persona she made my stay in Livingston a truly memorable experience. I highly recommend staying at Fawlty Towers, the accommodation, pool, garden and lounge area are always kept clean and tidy by the staff. Free tea and coffee all day, unfortunately due to Covid the free shuttle and pancakes are not available but this is no way detrimental to the lodge as Miriam will arrange taxi for you. It’s a great location with a supermarket just across the road, and lots of restaurants all within walking distance I highly recommend Fawlty Towers, there is nothing I can complain about or would change Thank you Miriam and all the staff for looking after me Caroline

Mariam and her team were friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and the facilities were the best. Lying by the pool, grabbing a beer, reading your book. Matthews was always ready at the bar, Gladys prepping our breakfast in the morning. Mariam gave us great info about the town and activities. Really comfortable stay!
