Reviewed 19 November 2013

I quite enjoyed this place. It's all you need when staying in Livingstone, i.e. air conditioning, a pool, basic breakfast and it's clean and well kept. Staff are friendly. We arrived with a larger group and in general our whole group enjoyed the stay. When staying here be sure to double check your booking as all was not entirely as we booked it when we arrived or when we settled the account. Apart from that I'll be glad to return.

Friendly and helpful Gloria with staff gave us a splendid over-night stay. Despite a late arrival we had a late and well deserved specially arranged dinner after some 490 km on motorbike from Kariba. We were able to select just the rooms we wanted with all necessary amenities (including fridge, micro wave oven, sink - and A/C!).
The staff went an extra way to give us the service we needed so the day ended in total harmony.
Of course our bikes ware parked in a locked area, which further contributed to our sound sleep.

Room Tip: Try to get the bungalow that sleeps just one couple. It is well equipped for self catering, if you s...

A family-owned clean and comfortable B&B (with a swimming pool) full of hospitalilty and good spirit. I was always welcome to stay in the family livingroom and socialize with the family members.

I stayed here both during a business trip and holiday travel - works for both occasions!
Farther of the house was also able to give me a drive to my conference venue / to the city when I needed one and I saved the trouble about thinking how to get a taxi.

Victoria Falls are a bit far away - but if that does not matter - then

I totally recommend!

Room Tip: Try to get a cottage if possible, really comfortable!

Very basic but very clean. Central to town and we got around with a taxi at a good rate. B&B to Vic Falls, to waterfront for dinner and back to the airport for 400K ( Kwatchas ). Loved the dogs, made me feel at home. Great swimming pool and even in September I could go for swim. Alan really made our stay !

Good place for family travellers who don't like noise and many people around. Exellent for backbackers and car travellers. Pleasant hosts assist in the transfer and booking trips to tourist attractions.

Stay at Gloria's was very nice. I had been staying at large 4/5 star hotels for this trip, but Livingstone was booked up due to a large conference. Booked a room at Gloria's B&B based on good reviews and was not disappointed. The location was in a nice neighborhood that was about a 10 minute walk to the main street in town. Taxi's all knew how to get to Gloria's and the airport was a short 5 minute drive away. Staff was all very friendly and made my group feel welcome. I would definitely recommend.

As a solo traveller I found this B&B reasonably priced and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was simple and clean and it was nice to be able to sit in the garden by the pool with accessible Wifi. Gloria helped to organise everything I needed and made an effort to cook me whatever breakfast and dinner I wanted. It was a very pleasant stay.
