I will definitely be staying here again on my next trip to Lusaka. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are great. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. There is an 'office' to work in, a pool, gym, restaurant, wifi. Everything you could need.

Room and food were v good, unfortunately no hot water in my room the entire stay did not help to improve my stay. I appreciate the boiler went down the first night, but more than 24 hours later to not have it sorted out is very poor for such an establishment.
