Great stay

We chose this hotel based on past ratings and proximity to airport. We had a quick overnight stay. All staff were helpful and welcoming. Big thanks to the gentleman who stayed late and came in early to do our laundry as we were transitioning from a week of volunteer work to a week of vacation.

Beautiful quite hospital lodge
Great hospitality, lovely garden, nice pool, good choice of tasty food. Would have been perfect except bed was quite uncomfortable - some hard bumps.

Value for money
Room was okey. Too much noise outside. Food needs improvement especially breakfast.

Go for the newer rooms
Some rooms are older and a bit cheaper, but they are not nearly as nice or comfortable. I would suggest one of their nicer rooms for a few more dollars-- they are worth it.

Thanks for amazing hospitality. It was pleasure staying at your place. Away from busy capital Lusaka nestled in secluded area with beautiful garden and amazing people. I want to thank both guys by the name Keith. They were very helpful, accommodating and absolutely amazing.

Nice quiet location with beautiful gardens where one can relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However it is somewhat remote and not that convenient to the malls; you require a taxi. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping needs a little work as we had to ask for insect spray (was provided) because mosquitoes were numerous and had to ask for new pillows twice as the ones provided were mildewed (should be replaced). Breakfast was good and evening meals were very good. Satellite TV was excellent with a wide selection of channels.

Lovely gardens
Made a good choice. Lusaka isn't a city with a huge amount of variations or surprises in hotels, but this place was special. Lovely gardens.
