Having stayed here for 3 days at a recent conference I can happily state that this hotel is OK as it goes. I had a large suite which was very comfortable and the bedroom and separate bathroom were of a comfortable size. The room was very quiet which I appreciated having travelled a long way for the conference. The bathroom had what I needed, plenty of complimentary toiletries etc. as well as a large walk in shower where there was plenty of hot water available too. The bed was comfortable but the only downside for me was the lack of blackout curtains. Luckily for me I was up with the sparrows most days but when I checked in during the afternoon they would have been useful as I hoped to have a nap.
The staff were very attentive and occasionally went beyond the standard call of duty to accommodate myself and fellow conference attendees. Be warned, many of us attending the conference had problems paying or gaining money using Visa in Zambia including at this hotel. Best bring cash as some of us were ready to sell the shirts off our back to get enough hard currency to pay our bills. Considering this problem, I doubt it was a new issue, it would be good to accept Amex, DC or other credit card as back up. The staff did however do their best to help us which they technically didn’t have to do. Mr Gabriel manning reception most days was very proactive in helping me personally solve my bill payment issues.
The bar is well stocked and is a pleasant venue in the evening and the restaurant serves standard hotel fare overlooking some nice gardens. Overall not a bad experience.
