Victoria Falls Hotel Press Release - November 2011

We would like to update you on progress regarding the refurbishment programme for The Victoria Falls Hotel, which is about to start. The Victoria Falls Hotel management partners, African Sun and Meikles Hospitality, as well as the property owners, the National Railways of Zimbabwe and Zambian Railways, are investing significantly in this refurbishment, the aim of which is to keep this hotel where it has always been: second to none.

We are in the final stages of appointing contractors and the plan is to start refurbishment work on January 10 2013 and have it completed by the end of May. The hotel will continue operating throughout this period and we hope there will be little to no inconvenience to guests staying with us during this time.

Once we have appointed the contractors, I will further update you all on the full scope and exact timings of this refurbishment exercise, and we hope you can then send this out to your contacts. Our focus is to make sure that we continue to maintain the standards expected of a world-class hotel and the only member of The Leading Hotels of the World in Victoria Falls.

As the new General Manager of the hotel, I am enjoying my stay at this prestigious hospitality institution and look forward to being of service to you and all our guests in coming months and years. Since arriving on November 1st, I have been impressed with all the features of this hotel – its history, its staff, its guests, its position within the hospitality industry in Southern Africa and the genuine affection with which it is held by so very many people around the world.
