We came across this hotel, sort of by coincidence, as we needed a place for 7 seven people, and they could accomodate us. We had a great stay. First one night, then we were away one night before we came back. The luggage was safely stored while we were away (our laptops kept in their office), and the staff were extremely friendly and service minded. They would greet you with a big smile, remember your name, and go out of their way to make your stay great. We were given a later check-out, free airport shuttle and even free breakfast. The first impression of the reception made me think this was a bit run-down and old, but the rooms were surprisingly nice, modern and spacious. And the location is also good - although close to the main road, the room are at the back, so you do not hear any noise from there at night. The pool is also nice. To sum up: Do not hesitate to stay here if you ever go to Livingstone. The price is very good (especially the service!!) and you will definately get good value for your money!

We were immediately upgraded to a suite, at no extra charge. The suite had a large sitting room with armchairs to accommodate about 8 people; it had cupboards, TV & A/C. Attached to this was a small dining room with microwave, fridge, table & 6 chairs. The bedroom was large & comfortable with more cupboards, A/C & a 2nd TV. Bathroom was clean with hot water. Restaurant served good dinners. Hotel staff were kind & courteous. Good swimming pool. This hotel was cheaper & much better than the nearby Jollyboys Backpackers. We were kindly given a free taxi transport to the bus station in the early hours of the morning. Highly recommended.

A well located hotel in the Main Street of Livingstone Zambia. Facilities and rooms were extremely well kept and cleanliness was top class. Spent 5 nights here and was particularly impressed by the friendliness and attention of all staff. Special mention must go to reception staff especially Duane and Allen who were so interested in our well-being and who treated us like family.

It looks so much better on the inside than the outside and the room we had was similar to the website photos. No mosquito nets but spray was provided and regularly used. The bedding however was old, tired and the pillows stained. It all needs replacing urgently. Food in the dining room was of good quality but the service was slow. There is no “ proper” coffee served, just the ricoffee with boiled milk if you order it in the restaurant. The staff at the front desk were always welcoming and wanting to ensure that all was well with us. The Wi-Fi wasn’t always consistent which was frustrating. We would stay here again as it was convenient for walking into town and the activity desk had a range of excursions to choose from. It was also budget friendly for us. But I would want to know that the bedding was clean and fresh if I did want to stay here again . We booked the Chobe day trip from here with the travel company African Joined and the service was exceptionally good.

We stayed for a week in New Fairmount Hotel (Lion, Deluxe family room). We were warmly welcomed by Maimbo at the airport and driven to the hotel. From reception to kitchen to night guard, gardeners and cleaning staff very cordial and helpful team. Especially Sylvia from housekeeping did a great job and she is a lovely person. We enjoyed the Indian cuisine from the hotel restaurant. The furnishings are a bit outdated. Good location for day trips to the Falls (Zambian and Zimbabwe side, 15 min cab ride). Overall a good price-performance ratio. P.S. With the big world map on the wall we planned the rest of our world trip

The hotel is excellent. The reception upon my arrival was superb with front desk staff and management very welcoming and professional in their conduct. The room, well-renovated, was spacious and very clean and the room charge was well below the level of comparator hotels in the City of Livingstone.

The hotel was well placed on the main street near the centre of Livingston the staff were very friendly and helpfull. The room was spacious clean and tidy fresh towels every day. The hotel has a nice pool and area to relax. The best thing about the hotel was its restaurant where we ate every night. The food was exceptionally good be it English Italian French Chinese or Indian the young chef could cook any international food well it was amazing we were surprised that not many others ate their. However the price may have been a little too high for their pockets. We certainly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel to anybody.
