“Good Value Budget Accomodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Arriving at the hotel I was warmly greeted by the General Manager Patience Musonza and the reception staff. The check-in process was quick and easy and I was shown to my room without delay. Established in 1968 the design reflects the era in which it was built and has no pretentions of being anything more than it is, a budget 3 star hotel. It is ‘motel’ in design and guests are able to park outside their rooms.

The hotel was refurbished in 2013 and all the rooms are spacious, modern and very fresh. The bathrooms are of a good size and the beds are very comfortable. The Sprayview offers everything you need as a traveller including two bar / lounges, free internet access and a wonderful swimming pool. It also has a gift shop and ‘Wild Horizons’ office where you can book activities. For groups and business travellers there is a meeting room and conference centre which can be booked. The weather in Victoria Falls is conducive to outside activities and there are tables and chairs near the pool area where guests can sit an relax. As for the food I found it to be plentiful, of a good quality and reasonably priced.

The Sprayview is situated on the outskirts of Victoria Falls town which is only a fifteen minute walk away. Here you will find banks, numerous curio vendors and various shops, restaurants and tour operators offering various activities. The hotel is 2ks from the Victoria Falls entrance gate which is an easy walk or reception will organise you a taxi.

Overall my stay at the Sprayview was very comfortable and I found the staff to be very helpful and pleasant. I would not hesitate to stay there again and recommend it to anyone looking for good value budget accommodation.

The staff at the hotel were all wonderful and very friendly. I had a breakfast box packed as I was going on a horse ride early morning. It was filled with food and juice. Unfortunately the shower was cold in the morning so was unable to get a hot shower. I didn't complain as I was only staying one night. The room was clean and neat with a very comfortable bed. Overall the hotel was good value for money. The horse ride with Zambezi Horse Trails was the highlight of my trip. The guides Reason and Joshua were wonderful. Saw Elephant and much more.

Room Tip: The room I had was a little distance from reception but faced a nice garden area.

We recently spent 2 nights at the hotel & found it to be a most pleasant experience. We stayed in a standard which was very comfortable and clean with crisp white linen. There was tea & coffee making facilities and toiletries in the bathroom. Security is very good - we saw security guards patrolling the property. The food was of a high standard, the breakfast bar had everything from fresh fruit & juices, cereals, eggs, bacon etc and even very freshly baked muffins.The terrace lunch menu was varied. The dinners we had were most enjoyable and were of a high standard. All meals were nicely presented. All the staff at the hotel were very efficient and friendly. The resort is a very short walk to the centre of Victoria Falls town, however if one does not feel like walking you can get a taxi into town for a nominal fee. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone.

Stayed for 5 nights during the Victoria Falls Marathon. The room has to be one of the most spacious i have ever stayed in ! There was space everywhere including the bathroom ! You will see from the photos.

Service was good - from the moment i was checked in - shown where everything was and finally to my room (the spacious one :-)) There is a tea / coffee tray, flat screen TV mounted on the wall ( handy as world cup was on ) toiletries which included mosquito repellant and fairly decent Wifi. They also had a direct USB socket ! Have not come across that - so no adapters were required :-) The location was pretty convenient and I walked everywhere including to the falls unless it was dark.

Breakfast was a decent spread and staff were always at hand to assist with a smile and they always asked how your day / night was.

The sports bar was lively especially when there was a world cup match on and they have a huge screen

The bed – while comfortable had 8 pillow – 2 of which were huge ! Maybe some people prefer that – but to me they were too many. Ideally there should have been a basket of sorts to place some of them at bedtime but none was provided. And the room has no carpet – so no prizes for guessing where they will end up.

One evening they did turn down which basically meant rolling back the duvet and tossing the pillows at a corner on the floor – I did not understand that – and subsequently declined it when they came calling

Overall – very good – would return and recommend

Room Tip: My room, 39 - was a bit of a walk - try getting 9-10

How wonderful it was to be welcomed so warmly at the Sprayview after our reservation at a lodge just down the road had been forgotten! After explaining our situation a receptionist quickly and efficiently found us a lovely room to which we were escorted after being given a quick tour of the hotel's restaurant, bar, lounges and outdoor areas. The furnishings and design of the revamped areas are exceptional. Wifi is free and available in these areas.
The room was spotless, spacious, well equipped with flat screen TV (news, sport and movie channels), tea and coffee making facility; a large bathroom with amenity packs.
The breakfast menu was wide and varied as well as being well presented and delicious = a cold buffet including cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, juices etc, and a hot buffet including eggs, bacon, beans, mushrooms, toast, sausages etc etc. we didn't have other meals there due to being entertained by friends and going to one of our favourite little cafes in one of the malls.
As for the staff, all without exception were professional, friendly and helpful. We were also fortunate to meet and be farewelled by the new GM, Patience, who has many years of experience in the hospitality industry in Victoria Falls. Do give the Sprayview a try when planning your stay in the Falls! Like us, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

I stayed there with a tour group where I thought I paid too much for a very basic room. Room is comparable to Motel 6. It's an older hotel dressed up with some recent renovations. Room was very basic. Small portion chicken curry at lunch was simply thin yellow liquid on small chicken strips. I had to send back the hamburger because it was undercooked.

Room Tip: Much nicer hotels closer to city center are available for very reasonable prices. Recent renovation...

Nothing spectacular about this hotel, rooms are basic, service ordinary, food o.k. Everything was clean. No bedside clocks in the rooms. No wash cloths in the bathroom. Safes in the room. We were a family of 6 traveling together and our rooms were scattered, rather than being placed beside one another. Not a lot of seating in the lobby. A nice conference room where we could all meet and have lectures or discussions.
