Reviewed 21 July 2014

The Southern Sun gives you a perfect place to stay when you are in Lusaka for business. The wifi connection is not so bad, the rooms are comfy and have that working desk in case you need to work from there and the restaurant has a continental menu. You just can't go wrong.

Stayed here in transit twice. They try very hard. Staff are friendly and willing to help. The breakfast was good and a wide array of choices. The rooms are of average size and fitted out in a plain style but the beds are very comfortable. There is a safe in your room and there is a gym and a pool and both were of more than acceptable quality. If l was visiting Lusaka l would stay here again. It's located within a 5 km radius of most of what you need to see and do. The crocodile pond with the African weaver birds next to the restaurant was fun and provided a good source of entertainment

Room Tip: Try for the new wing

We stayed at the Ridgeway for one night. The service was very good both at the reception and the restaurant. Room was a little bit dated but still fine. The pool area was also very pleasant but a little noisy near the road. Meals were very nice. The hotel seemed to be very popular with business people and was fairly busy which is always a good sign for a hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 2nd floor which was very quiet. It was not one of the refurbished rooms but sti...
