“Value, Location & Hospitality”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We began our Southern Africa adventure in Zimbabwe. Lorries B&B was our first stop where we stayed two nights and it was like staying with that family member you love who always makes room for you. Very comfortable and safe (gated).

Like the other reviews say, Lorrie, Clive and George are so real and welcoming...full of advice and patience if you can't make up your mind about what to do. Lorrie arranged several last minute adventures for us that turned out VERY well. They arranged for Paul (a taxi driver) to pick us up and take us various places. His prices seemed fair and he was prompt.

The bar/cafe is a great place to hang out and tell stories about the day's adventures. You will be way better off here than wandering in to town to find a drink.

Our adventures required us to get up very early so we never had the breakfasts.

The rooms are older and could use some maintenance, especially the bathrooms (however, construction endeavors are difficult in Zimbabwe). Everything worked and was clean and spacious with mosquito nets on the beds and fans overhead.

One note - WiFi only worked in the bar/lobby area.

Likes:
- The location
- The hosts
- The bar

Dislikes:
- Heat: Unfortunately it was very hot when we were there and no fan would have kept us cool. Not something our hosts could've controlled.

Bottom Line: For the price, location and hospitality I would stay at Lorrie's again. We couldn't have had a better start to our adventure!

We recently stayed at lorries b&b for 3 nights although the facilities are a bit old they are comfortable and clean .Lorrie ,Clive and George are very friendly , and are very helpful in there local knowledge .The meals were very good home cooked style, and the bar was well stocked .Lorrie is able to arrange local tours , and transport ,and has good hints on the local taxi service. As lorries is about 2km for town ,it is a nice walk in the morning ,but after all day walking around the falls and town ,you may need a taxi ride back to Lorries in the evening.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom cottage is ideal for 2 couples or a family it is separated from the main building so i...

What a lovely place! Lorrie did up a fantastic itinerary for us that made sure we got the experience we wanted in the time we were there. The rooms were comfortable and the banter from George you won't find at a hotel! Lorrie, Clive and George all became good friends - such is the experience at lorries. Stay for dinner and request the crocodile tail! town is a short taxi and places to eat like Boma a short walk. Lorries comes highly recommended, we have brought home unforgettable memories. Be sure to bring a spare hat to hang on the bar wall!

Lorrie and Clive are pleasant and friendly but the accommodation is not what we expected. The towels are thin, the ceilings patched, the mosquito nets dirty, there is no aircon despite the heat and everything is old.The accommodation needs a complete revamp and upgrade.
I take into account that it can't be easy running a business as an individual in Zimbabwe and this has moderated my comments.

Room Tip: can't help because we only saw the accommodation allocated to us

I loved staying at Lorries B&B during my time in Vic Falls! Lorrie, Clive and George are all extremely friendly and really made me feel at home. Lorrie is very accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. The service is really great; I never ate a bad meal and my room was always clean. If I ever have the chance to visit Vic Falls again I will unquestionably be staying at Lorries! I highly recommend it!

I returned to Lorries on business in Victoria Falls and it was like coming home.
As always quiet and relaxing and Lorries knowledge and help about anything to do with the town extremely helpful. Nice to see all the improvements to the establishment each time I stay.

Room Tip: The Cottage is lovely and spacious and very Quiet.

We traveled as a family of 4 and stayed in the cottage, which had a very homey feel to it. Lorrie went out of her way to accommodate us when we needed assistance with visas into Botswana. We have stayed in other hotels in Victoria Falls, but it was nice getting the personal attention we received at Lorries.

Room Tip: Lorrie will help you find the right room. If the cottage is available, it is great for families/gro...
