“Great hotel just outside of Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

The Cresta Sprayview hotel is located a few minutes outside downtown Vic Falls along the main road into the town. It has been so recently renovated that you can even smell the fresh paint on the walls. The suites have electronic card locks and a safes. The hotel has a great pool and pool side restaurant. The pool is thoroughly cleaned. Overall the staff are very friendly and helpful and can arrange taxis into town or to your destination (otherwise it's about a 10 minute walk). The hotel also has a gift shop and a tour agent where you can arrange game drives, bungee jumps, helicopter rides and many other fun activities offered in the area. The only minor downside is that the hotel is a bit isolated from the rest of the town, but taxis are on call when needed. Overall a wonderful experience at Cresta Sprayview.

Ended my safari with a few days at the Sprayview before heading back to the USA. The renovations are fabulous and the rooms are very clean and modern. Restaurant leaves something to be desired. The property is about a 15 minute walk from downtown Victoria Falls. Staff are very friendly.

The staff are very friendly and ready to help. The rooms are excellent, modern, they were very clean, roomy, air conditioned, bathroom was clean. Internet access is excellent. Only 1 km from the falls. Very good value for money. I would gladly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here the next time I'm in Vic falls.

There were large gaps at bottom and side of room doors so had lots of ants and other bugs in the room. While the have a nice breakfast buffet next to the pool, there were flies all over the food.
Lunches and dinners were disappointing

Thank you for your review of Cresta Sprayview.
I sincerely apologise for your discomfort during your stay.
Unfortunately this time of the year bugs are common throughout the region and not just at Cresta Sprayview alone. We treat the resort for these bugs but during the high heat and rainy season they cannot be avoided and may cause discomfort to some guests but are in no way harmful. We will action the concerns raised and can assure you that we will do our best to avoid such instances occurring again.
Kind regards,
The Cresta Sprayview Team

last month I stopped in at the brand new Cresta Sprayview Hotel, a hotel I remember from over 20 years ago and I was amazed by the new hotel. Newly decorated, clean and wonderfully friendly staff. I can't praise the management enough for turning this hotel around from what it was to what it is now! I will certainly be returning to stay in the near future and look forward to it.

This hotel is laid out like one-story garden apartments, with paths through garden-like areas leading to the rooms. The rooms, attached in linear chains, are the issue with me. These rooms are dated-looking and totally unsexy both in the exterior (though they did have little porch areas looking over the gardens) and the interior. I did like the good size of my room, but a bulb was burned out, the lighting in general was poor, and the bathroom was pretty minimal in the amenities department. My sink stopper was also missing, though its chain remained (and got in the way of washing.) Mosquitoes and other insects got in, which is not too surprising considering the sketchy nature of the screening in the little window in the bathroom. Over a two-night stay, my group ate three of four seated meals plus two buffet breakfasts at the Sprayview: the breakfast was OK, nothing thrilling, though it's always nice to have someone make your eggs to order. I was disappointed by the quality of the food served at the seated meals: dried-out pork shops, tasteless ice cream, etc. HOWEVER: I was impressed by the front desk personnel's friendliness and helpfulness. And the internet room was terrific. After almost a month of travelling with little (if any) ability to email, it was great to find two working, large-screen computers in a well-furnished room and almost instant access to gmail, no passwords or fuss required. I was happy to trade off all the rest in order to get this nice internet connectivity.

I stayed 3 nights in the hotel while visiting the Victoria Falls. Recently renovated, nicely appointed rooms, well working AC, nice pool area. Had to really work hard to get a towel. :-)

Excellent breakfast buffet. However, all other meals more mediocre. Wifi spotty but available.
