With spacious rooms, a fully furnished gymnasium and serene environment, Cresta is a cool place to stay. The surroundings are well kept and maintained with a few Impalas running up and about, the place presents a rare stay in the heart of a cosmopolitan city. Combining nature, busy city life and courteous staff, the place makes both for relaxing and business.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building are slightly smaller, rooms in secluded buildings are relatively bigger...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights before heading to Livingstone. The front office staff were the most friendly staff I met throughout our stay at various places in Zambia. We wanted to sleep until about 9.00am since we were on holiday, but unfortunately we were always disturbed by the house keeping staff who sometimes were quite loud. Overall we enjoyed our stay

I am a USA physician, I am a platinum member of Delta Airlines. I fly a lot and all over the world. I stay at a lot of hotels monthly. Compared to USA hotels, this hotel, like most Zambian hotels are substandard, meaning, the hotel needs fixing up, things dont work that should work, etc. There is a gym here but it is only a single all in one machine, a few dumb bells ranging from 16kgs to 22. and two tread mills and two bicycles. For me, and avid wight lifter, It sucked. The food was ok, the price of the food less than I expected, I stayed a half day longer and they only charded me $30, that was nice, they helped get taxi for me and although I was the only white man there and got lots of staring everyone was polite to me. There is a very nice looking pool here but it was freezing, I could only stay in the pool for five minutes before my feet went numb. The room is small. The internet worked in the room, no problems signing on and staying on. I have stayed at the Radisson in Lusaka and liked it much more than this Golfview but the Golf was $150 per night and the Radisoon was $250. The water pressure in the shower was weird, ti would almost die then come back with explosive pressure then die down again, it made it a little difficult to shower. The bed was suppose to be a king but Im sure it was a queen. No peep hole at the door. There is safe but I couldn't get it to work and it was so small that your laptop will not fit inside of it.. There are wedding here daily by the pool so if you are there in your bikini you could suddenly and without warning get invaded by many ppl.

Room Tip: No wild parties while I was there so stay on the side with the pool and away from the road. However...

Was in Z for 4 nights doing some training at a Hotel just down the road - Raddisson Blue (different review, different price bracket) Stuck in same Hotel for 4 nights, did not bother to venture out. Much to my surprise found it very enjoyable and relaxing. This is a simple, smart hotel, well run, friendly staff. Restaurant a good choice of foods, both local and International, all well presented and tasty - nice pool, albeit small - small local gym - Reasonable range of TV Channels. If English Football is your thing - heaven - only 1 hour time difference and prob 2 live matches a night :) !

Set in parkland, not large but very pretty and with the deer running around in the daytime just a bit different. If I was on my way to or from somewhere via the airport (20 mins, 150 Kwatcha or so Taxi - about 80 using Hotel Minbus back to the Airport) and wanted a simple chill out experience this would be it. £ for £ very good value.
Everyone helpful and service excellent - except for some reason the small bar - seems to need three people to prepare one drink - perhaps more junior staff - with large GandT at around £3.20 who cares :)

Dear Guest

Thank you for your recent review on Tripadvisor.

It was a pleasure to have you staying with us for 4 nights. Thank you for pointing out that we offer great value.

We are pleased that you found the hotel to be a great place to chill and that our accommodation, dining and other guest facilities met your needs. On a lighter note, I am especially pleased that you saw our small herd of Impala (they look look like deer) roaming freely within our hotel grounds.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.


Yours sincerely

As I am working in NW Zambia and live in CT my wife and I met up in Lusaka before flying out to the Lower Zambezi. We had an early flight the following day and decided to stay at a hotel close to the airport. A business colleague recommended the Cresta a Golf a Hotel and we were not disappointed. Zambia is known for its high prices and overrated hotels, but the Cresta is really up there with the best in the Country. There are no frills but I would recommend this hotel for a stop over. We asked for an upgrade to an executive suite and this was provided at no extra charge. The suites are a long walk to the rear, set amongst the trees in the garden, with the resident impala grazing outside our room. The restaurant was pleasant and the service efficient with a tasty dinner and buffet breakfast to send us on our way. All in all better than three stars but not quite four, excellent position for the airport.

Hey was heading to Livingstone and this place was just beautiful,the structure and staff ...........

The only setback is its not a twenty four hour service outlet.I had to go out for dinner and many places are not open at night.

The amenities and everything i rate them at 89-95%

I won the Cresta Calling Competion with Air Namibia and Cresta Golfview Hotel.

This is a very decent hotel. Rooms is a bit small, but adequate. You get free wifi for one hour per day for your stay, and get get more at reception at a price.

Staff was very friendly, in the Bar, Restuarant, Room cleaning, Front office.

Lusaka is not a tourist destination, and there is hardly anything to do, but the Hotel and the food, well kept us busy. We went into town 1day, and visit a mall and the O'Hagans..

Overall we had a great experience.

This is really a country of smiles!

Thank you Cresta and Golfview!
