Sprayview Hotel has always been a firm favourite of mine. “Back in the day” when our children were small it was the perfect spot for comfortable accommodation, good food and a superb swimming pool, all so family friendly. The recent refurbishment of Sprayview has only enhanced these qualities, much to my delight. The rooms are spacious and I do like the “clean” feel of the decor. The bathrooms are larger than one would expect, with hot, stingy showers. Just the thing to rinse off the sunblock and dust after a busy day traipsing around Victoria Falls.
My highlight of each day was the breakfasts.. a great selection of fruit and cereals, but the piece de resistance is chatting to the chef as he cooks your eggs just the way you like them. A meal like this sets you up for the day, ready for any action that may come your way.
For those who just want to blob out for a couple of hours, the pool side is the place. Use the WIFI to catch up with social media or soak up the sun, after a few laps of that marvelous pool.
We found all the hotel staff so friendly and accommodating, from the gardeners to the reception staff, we felt so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. I also like the fact that the general manager is always around, chatting to his guests and making sure everyone has what they need. This practice seems to have petered out in a lot of establishments, in my opinion, its a personal touch that is impossible to put a value on.
If you are not looking for 5 star, yet want something new and affordable, Sprayview is the perfect hotel. It is suitable for children, and has a relaxed ambiance that would suit any traveler. The complimentary WIFI is a great bonus, available throughout the establishment. I also like Sprayview’s location, being so central and easy to find, right on the main road into town. Parking is secure and plentiful.
A big thank you to Patience, and all the staff, for looking after us so well.
