The place is located near the town center of the city with a supermarket just across the road. This makes it easy to walk to nearby stores for any groceries or meals. The rooms are clean and have WiFi although its flaky. The hotel needs to do more to improve on the security of the rooms like introducing key cards... More

This hotel survives on its conference business. The room I had was clean and the bed was comfortable. The food is average conference fair. Breakfasts could be better. However the hotel is not expensive and you probably are getting what you pay for.

Located with a beautiful green park, where its finest years can be imagined. A hotel with amenities that shows it past glorious days, and now lingers on its non-existent competition. The staff does its best, where the top fails to realise its hidden potential.

Nice hotel except for the mattresses. Had a horrible sleep as if I was in a hammock. There is a nice pool and the restaurant is mediocre. Kind staff. I'm not sure if you have any better options when staying in Kabwe.

Honestly, the hotel standards have delapidated. When I ordered a meal like 2 hours earlier, it was given to someone else and I had to wait for another 3 hours. We made an earlier booking to use their comference hall. Half way through our workshop, we were moved to another lodge because there was a clush with another group that... More

I believed the websites and comments that said this is the only place to stay in Kabwe, but this is totally untrue as some local friends took us to a far better hotel yesterday for a slightly cheaper price! The wifi doesn't work, most of the rooms don't have nets on the windows (and when you arrive the windows will... More

I am an expatriate living in Zambia, who recently went to Kabwe on a business trip and stayed at Tuskers Hotel. First, I was made to pay upfront. So ended up paying for one night, which was a blessing in disguise. The hotel staff were unfriendly and rude from reception. The room was over priced (compared to other accommodation in... More

Kabwe is not a typical destination but once you get there the only decent place to stay is "Tuskers Hotel". We did some environmental work and occupied 4 rooms. Everyone was very happy with both the rooms, front desk, dining area and pool / outdoor seating area. I'm going back soon and would definitely stay there. Here are some things... More

We went to the restaurant only. As in all of Zambia, service is extremely slow but friendly enough. This place has a rustic charm. We sat outside in the grass up above the empty pool (in July) and enjoyed the weather, sounds of the street... food is very good. Go with the chicken or pizza dishes Bathrooms work with running...

Rooms were adequate and clean. Food generally ok but service could be very slow. Either desk staff are not good with English or maybe low intelligence. Difficult to get information from. Pity the idiots who were repairing the road out front did not have the Hotel's interests in mind. closed off all road entrances every day of our stay. Would... More
