“Friendly service, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

We had a great time at Lorrie's B & B-- the gardens are beautiful, the rooms comfortable, and the whole place has a homey feel. We were greeted by Lorrie and Clive after arriving very late-- since we hadnt eaten dinner and the restaurants were closed Lorrie prepared some food for us! Breakfasts were delicious, loved the always available tea and coffee. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for reasonably price rooms that focus on comfort rather than frills. When i tried to book had trouble finding contact info, so I asked Lorrie for her email: lorrie@mweb.co.zw. Phone: +263 13 42139. One note: there are 2 cute dogs who are very friendly, so if you really dislike dogs, this is probably not the place for you!

My wife and I have been to Africa several times now and we always stay with Lorrie at her B&B in Vic Falls. She took great care of us on our first trip when we had much to learn about travelling in Zimbabwe- she and George have always taken such wonderful care of us every time we go there. I cannot imagine ever going to Zim without going to see them. She can and will arrange everything for you and makes sure that all goes well. Make sure that you stay there for dinner as her chicken curry is the best! We consider the whole lot our family now and forever.
We are writing this review as the first one worth our advice.

Room Tip: Select the "Guest House" if it is available.

We had a wonderful time at Lorrie's Bead and Breakfast. Upon arriving, we were welcomed by the beautiful garden full of green and Lorrie and Clive's sweet smiles.The room was cozy, clean, and very well-sealed so we didn't have to worry about mosquitos sneaking in during the night. Loved their breakfast--so fresh, tasty and filling. They were all really nice and helpful sharing with us tips to get around, honest opinions about what activities to try, and such pleasant conversations whenever we stopped by at the bar/common room. They really made our stay here special, and I would love to stay here if and when I visit Victoria Falls again.

Lorrie's B&B is a great value in a sea of ridiculously expensive hotels. The room was simple but very clean, comfortable, and spacious. The pub is friendly and inviting. Breakfast is a big spread with great food, fresh and cooked to order. The grounds are beautiful, graced by the presence of some wild birds. Arranging an airport pickup from Lorrie will save you money over picking up a taxi upon arrival. Lorrie, Clive, and George really took care of us with travel tips and detailed instructions for getting around the Falls. Lorrie did my girlfriend and me a huge favor by allowing us to check out late on our day of departure.

If ever visiting Victoria Falls again, I will definitely stay here again. I have been traveling for a year and a half and this is the first review I have written. I just felt so welcomed by Lorrie. Thanks for a great stay.

This place was simply fantastic! As a solo traveller on a budget i was looking for a small B&B type place and Lorries fitted that description perfectly.. It is by all means not 5 star accommodation but if you are looking for a cheap rate, but clean rooms and very nice staff then this is your place.

With all the respect in the world one of the reviews left below is complete rubbish! The reason why i had such an experience of a lifetime in Zimbabwe/Victoria Falls was down to Lorrie going out of her way to book the activities that i wanted and also providing fantastic company at the bar with Clive and George in the evenings. Old boy George is hysterical and a good pool player!!

I am all for providing a fair critical overview so am trying very hard to think of something negative yet constructive to say but I’m struggling! At just 20 minutes walk from the town and 30 minutes walk from the falls, the location is pretty good as well.. There is no internet access but there are two places in the local town where it can be accessed.. If ever i am back in the area i wouldn’t think twice as to where to stay and will certainly be in touch with Lorrie via email in the mean time just to stay in touch..

Would love to see more comments on this lovely small business in the future

We have stayed at Lorries twice now and will definitely be back again for New Year 2012. We loved the tranquility and friendliness of Lorrie, Clive and George. Nothing too much for them. This is certainly not 5 Star whistles, bells and martinis at dawn but then who needs that. Friendly staff very sociable pub - what more could you ask for. We have recommended Lorries to our friends and all have raved over it. Keep up the good work Lorrie and we will see you in December.

Room Tip: Best if you ask for air con as it can get pretty hot in Vic Falls

Judged on the basis of being a B&B I found Lorries Bed and Breakfast to be delightful. The accommodation itself was fairly basic, although perfectly comfortable, but the atmosphere was excellent. The grounds were attractive and peaceful, everything was well maintained, and all involved in handling arrangements and dealing with guests were second to none. The character of our stay was that of being welcomed in the home of sophisticated long-time Zimbabwean residents rather than in a property catering to tourists.
