“Unbeatable hospitality in a superb garden setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2011

We arrived late morning and although Wayside offers bed and breakfast we were immediately offered snacks and made to feel really welcome. The setting is on an old farm with extensive grounds that have been landscaped to create a real oasis in the city. Everything is geared to making guests feel like personal visitors.

Room Tip: All rooms open on to the gardens

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2010

I loved the Wayside Guest House. It was a good value and had everything a business traveler needs - wireless internet, safe, good service, great breakfast, easy communication with manager, airport transfer with sign, etc. The rooms are not fancy but the bed is comfortable and the mosquito net is very big and well placed, so you're not sleeping up against the net at night. The gardens are beautiful - bring a swim suit, there's a nice little pool too. It's not in the city center but taxi into town is 15-20 minutes so why not enjoy a quiet beautiful location instead of the noisy business district.

Looks very ordinary from the outside, and along a questionable road, but from the moment you enter the gates, we knew we'd found a jewel. The rooms were spotless, well screened, tastefully and simply decorated and provided complimentary coffee/tea/cookies. Spacious verandah, and lovely gardens to wander-make sure you check out the "secret garden" as well!.Pool area and gazebos well kept and very inviting. We stayed there several times over a 2-3 week period, had a few last-minute requests and changes , and the staff were most accommodating and helpful in everything- they even ordered us great Pizza one night!.

Breakfast, included with the room served in a small and cheerful dining room, was delicious, and cooked to order by Nicholas.

Have stayed in some of the larger hotels in Lusaka, which are adequate- the Wayside is by far a better choice, a home away from home, and a great place to relax for a few days as you prepare for your other adventures in Zambia.

Also think it would be a great place for a single traveler- very safe.
