“This hotel is okay for one night while awaiting early British Airways flight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2010

the staff are very friendly; we have found that Zambian people are very open, welcoming and friendly anyway, however this hotel has recently left Cresta hotels group and it is looking poorer for it. The rooms are functional although the cleaning seemed a bit sporadic. The meals were okay; my stuffed chicken was lovely but my husband's lamb stew was mostly gristle. The breakfasts were uninspiring and there was no entertainment for adults and children alike except for the swimming pool. The staff manning the restuarant were, again friendly but not very professional. The tables in the restaurant were not clean and the cutlery required a quick wipe.
The path leading to the swimming pool was uneven and this could cause a bad accident.
It was very expensive for what it offered.
We wouldl like to mention Gabriel and also the taxi driver who picked us up at Lusaka Airport, Sangavi. They were both very professional. As I said earlier, the staff were all lovely but I think they have been abandoned by Cresta hotels and are struggling to stay afloat.

I live in Lusaka for several years now. Frequently I have guests and me and family also likes to dine and have fun at a pool. I have tried and seen all the major hotels incl. the international chains. Forget about them: you pay a lot and you are treated like a insignificant individual (number is a better word). Food is mostly horrible too. Now I discovered Crest Golfview and what a relief: nice, spacy and quiet premises, rooms and facilities. Great service. Beautiful outside terrace and pool brings you into happy and relaxed mood. As it is big, you never feel stressed with other guests. And the food is absolutely value for money, very tasty and made with love. And the location is perfect. I wish I had found it earlier....

We choose tostay here because our flight got in late and we were told the Cresta had a shuttle to and from the Airport. Upon clearing customs and walking out we found the Shuttle had apparently left without us inspite of being told to expect us. We were'nt even the last ones out. This was the main reason we choose to stay here. A little harrowing trying to get a cab after all the heckling by the cab drivers.

Hotel was reasonably clean, staff was helpful. Missed dinner and the bar was shut. The Breakfast bufffet was very good. Grounds were well kept. The room was okay, reasonably clean.

For what we got I think it was a little on the pricey side and we were dissappointed with the lack of shuttle from the airport.

The reception, entrance etc are clean and welcoming. The staff good- even the restaurants are OK. But the rooms are appalling!
The tiles floors are sticky with old dirt. Cockroaches wander the bathroom at night - I found at least 4 per night in the bath/shower. Water supply problems and air locks mean that the water from the shower is intermittently very hot or very cold, but worst of all leads to toilets flushing with enough force to hurl the contents out of the bowl an onto the floor.
Air conditioners are noisy and don't work - save some money and stay cheaper and cleaner elsewhere (as my colleagues did).

Did not stay overnight. Stopped by for breakfast buffet on way into town from airport. Appreciated the stiff salute provided by the guards as our vehicle entered the property. The breakfast was delicious. I used the business center to catch up on e-mail, although it is fairly expensive compared to other internet access points within the city.
