Stayed several Times at the Sherbourne. Rooms are in General at the very Dark side, with all Lights on and open Curtains still Headlight reqired. Roadside is quiet noisy. If near the Restaurant and Soccer Game is on, Noisy as well due to lots of local Visitors watching. They actually block Parking for the Residents, so your Car remains outside... More

Thank you Mr Bushracer for coming to Sherbourne and taking the time to review our lodge. Sorry that your room was too dark. We have switched to new bulbs that are greener and come recommended by local electrical company. We are happy to change to the very bright bulbs that we keep in store should our guests make a request.... More

I have stayed 3x at Sherbourne over the past 3 years . I like the ambience. Quaint and delightful. Rooms are average and need improvements. . Menu is quite ok but after 3 years could use a change. Check in and slowness to payment etc was a bit painful. I like this place but it has much more potential if... More

The Sunday Buffet was absolutely sublime, they offered a hog roast which I loved. The service was good, the staff were friendly, there was an adjacent casino which was full of life. The scenery and the swimming pool was beautiful. Although some reviews complained about noise, when I went I found it very quiet and peaceful as my room was... More

The Sherbourne Guesthouse is overflowing in lush greenery - each corner filled with delightful African handwork and knicknacks. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast offered is a little dissappointing in that it is a small spread and not much choice.The downside is that the facilities are not always reliable and in working condition. But the staff are quite... More

Service was atrocious. Waiters rude, refused to serve us breakfast because the manager had gone out and had locked up the eggs! We had to call the manager and offer to go buy our own ingredients. Appalling.

Dear Zed traveler 2012. Thank you so much for taking the time to review our lodge. Firstly, I do apologise for your very bad breakfast experience. In my 20 years of running this place, we have never run out of eggs and I have no idea as to what transpired. I am disappointed at the rude waiter who never brought... More

Stayed in room 2 in the Annexe. The manageress at the front desk was friendly and helpful but although she promised to get the air conditioning to work properly, on the 3rd day, it still was not working. A loose connection to the bedside light was corrected, although the habit of putting 2 pin round plugs into sockets designed for... More

Comfortable and clean room, good service. Convenient access to restaurant, and the new 888 Casino that opened makes the stay more worthwhile due to the entertainment value. I haven't seen a casino this nice anywhere in Zambia other than in Lusaka. The decor is nicely done, the tables and chairs are new and comfortable, and there are more than 20... More

I stayed here on a business trip in April. Although the other reviews mention the noise from the bar, it was fairly quiet the 5 days I stayed here. I was close to the bar but never really did the sound level bother me. The rooms are large enough and the bed comfortable, and fitted with a mosquito net.WiFi was... More

Dear vos007. Thank you so much for taking the time to review our lodge. I am sorry about the water pressure issues and lack of a'la carte on a Sunday. This is due to the fact that on Sundays, the kitchen is closed for the weekly spring cleaning and scrubbing of walls . Food preparation is virtually impossible. That is... More

I stayed in the Annexe (room A3) which was OK, although being an older house, there are windows above the main door to the rooms so that the corridor light shines in. This is not so good for sleeping, plus, one may be disturbed by other guests coming in at night. The rooms are well appointed although the queen sized... More

I was given a room near the bar and this meant that in spite of my serious jet lag, I was unable to sleep as there is noise till late in the night.

Dear Sahsameer. Thank you for taking the time to review our lodge. I am sorry that the bar patrons kept you awake. On a week day, the bar closes at 10pm and the place should be quiet.
