We travel to Zambia four times a year to work in the Monze District and after a long day in the villages, this is the perfect place to come home. Is it perfect? No. It's a motel with fairly basic rooms, but the rooms are clean, the shower works, has hot water and the rooms have a/c - pretty impressive...

The rooms were very acceptable for a small town. I started in one of the rooms attached to the main building which were fine. It was very clean and the water was plenty hot for a great shower. I then moved to one of the executive rooms adjacent to the main building for a rise of 25% in the still...

I stayed here for just one night. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable and the shower had lots of hot water - just what I needed after a long day. The restaurant closes at 8.30pm, but they let us wait for our friend. The beers are cold and the service is prompt and friendly. Breakfast is ok, the...

Golden pillow is about the only place that has tried to put up facilities that you would expect to find in a hotel. But be warned that the quality is not great. Positives: The rooms are affordable. Breakfast is served every morning and very early from 7am to 9am. Breakfast comes with 2 eggs, beans, bacon, sausage tomato, slices of...

Nice clean place to stay on the highway in Monze. Don't be fooled by the fact that it's a truck stop. In the compound in the back they have 20+ rooms that were very clean & comfortable. True to its name, the pillows are really nice.

Having stayed in many many African hotels in this price range, the Golden Pillow is a great place. It was clean and comfortable, and the beds were actually great. The pillows were extremely comfortable, a far cry from so many places where pillows are lumpy and hard. Air conditioning in all rooms. The showers and bathrooms weren't great. Our shower...

A comfy night in Monze at Golden Pillow. Slept here a second time with no regrets. The lodge is located by the roadside of the Lusaka-Livingstone road. Checked in after 7pm. Within a short time after ordering our meals, dinner was served. The restaurant is right next to the reception and a comfortable lounge with satellite tv and national newspaper...

A small hotel (book early - it is popular and I saw three families turned away as they had not booked). Clean and very comfortable rooms. Great pillows (not golden as before the name of the hotel) and a very comfortable bed. I had a room where the washbasin was in the shower which was novel - the toilet/shower room...

Stayed here for one night enroute to Lusaka from S.Province. The rooms in the main building are a bit more private but older, I chose to stay on the "open" lower newer area in the "Kikwete Executive Suite' which was nice and large for the price. The restaurant in the main building served food soso quality. Liked oxtail with Nsima...

If you find yourself needing a place to stay between Lusaka and Livingstone, the Golden Pillow is a good choice. Rooms have air conditioning, and lots of hot water for showers. The management is wonderful and attentive. There's a restaurant on the property that serves an amazing variety of good food. I was very happy staying here.
