The hotel itself is beautiful with so many interesting artefacts to see. You can wonder the hallway for hours reading and viewing the many interesting items. Unfortunately the service in the Stanley Terrace was inpersonal and slow. We waited an hour for our food from...More

You can go for afternoon tea and then relax with a gin and tonic and watch the sun go down over the gorge and view of Vic falls bridge. All in a little bit of history of a time gone by.

My wife and I enjoyed high tea here on the recommendation of our tour guide. It exceeded our expectations. After 12 hours on the move from a safari lodge in South Africa to Victoria Falls Hotel, we watched the beauty of the mist rising from...More

We were disappointed with the afternoon tea on the Stanley Terrace. The location is a must if visiting the falls but the afternoon tea was really not up to standard. The sandwiches were frankly poor, mini bagels and cheese and tomato are not what was...More

With the sight and sound of the Victoria Falls across the lawn of the Victoria Falls Hotel, this has to be the best place to have a traditional afternoon tea of sandwiches, scones and cream, and cakes. Great tea with great views.

We had to visit the original hotel to have afternnoon tea on the terrace and a drink in Stanley's Bar. Well worth it. Spectacular view across the lawn to the 'smoke that thunders' and the metal bridge. Superb service. Stunning old building with great atmosphere.

I went here for tea late morning on a Saturday. For the history of the place and view of the falls, it's worth a visit. But I was the only active customer at the time (the one other table already had their food), and it...More

We had lunch, high tea, and dinner at Stanley's Terrace. With the view and the 100+ year old environment, we felt like early (luxury) explorers. I particularly recommend the Victoria salad (Caesar with regular lettuce) with crocodile, and the Steak Au Poivre (only USD 18).
