This is the 2nd time I have used the hotel for business purpose and myself and my colleagues would highly recommend it. The meeting room was set up appropriately and T/C and scones were brought on time.

Bit far away from city center, it is a very nice hotel with good services and rooms. Car is needed to go downtown Lusaka but can have nice walk all around the hotel. Very safe. Pool and garden with baby crocodiles.

I have stayed at the Southern Sun Ridgeway Hotel in Lusaka for many years and have enjoyed every stay. That is the good news! The bad news is that my last trip, last week, was somewhat of a disaster. From the moment I checked in I felt that my custom was taken for granted and at USD 230 per night,... More

It's a good choice at around $130 for a standard room (UN rate, I believe). Overall pleasant and responsive service in restaurant, bar, reception, business centre and room service. Nice big breakfast included with all you could want. Food and beverages overall are quite good. Better WiFi than I expected which was quite adequate for my business purposes. Fairly quiet... More

A very pleasant stay, made even better by the warm and friendly hotel staff. The pond in the breakfast room/restaurant with bright yellow birds flying back and forth to their nests during breakfast is well worth the experience. Clean, comfortable, good connectivity and a nice, tranquil atmosphere all round.

I stayed at this hotel while on business more than once. It is comfortable, serves good food, offers a good ambiance, and the weekly sessions where guests get together offer a huge networking opportunities and a different form of dining. There is a community of business travellers during the week and the place can be very busy. The staff is... More

I stayed here when it was the Holiday Inn about 5 years ago (i'm just getting round to writing some reviews!). The place is well located, just on the outskirts of the city, it used to have an Irish themed bar attached, but I think this has moved to Woodlands now. The rooms were spacious, clean and the staff were... More

I stayed at the Ridgeway again last week on business and had a good stay. The rooms appear to have all been renovated and the bar has also seen a makeover since I was there last. The staff are as pleasant and helpful as previous and the food buffet or a la carte was of a good standard - not... More

I could not enjoy my sleep because of mosquitoes. Need to be spraying the rooms and also provide mosquito repellent. Secondly, the locking system for room 219 needs attention otherwise leaving it in this state will be very venerable and compromise on the security of customers.
