    Good option for Lilongwe stay over
    It was good in all ways including the breakfast. The best of many places I stayed in during my many hotel nights spendt in Malawi during the last 3 years
    Karl, za1 night trip
    Very good 8.0
    Reasonable business hotel
    The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel generally clean. The room was also nice and generally comfortable. Some areas that could be improved are the internet, fitness options and the coffee! Internet logs you out if your phone or laptop is on standby. This means you miss messages and Skype calls. There is a pool but it’s quite small and no gym. Breakfast was reasonable but let down by lack of decent coffee. There are some good restaurants in walking distance so worthwhile if you need to be in the area

    Reliable quality in a well situated hotel.
    The staff in the hotel are all friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean and appropriately furnished including tea making facilities. The self-service breakfast offers a good range of food catering to a variety of tastes. The hotel is situated within walking distance of Lilongwe Mall where there are banking and shopping facilities.

    Exceptional 10.0
    A garden hotel, with good food & friendly staff
    The hotel has a pleasing layout and attractive grounds. A good restaurant and business facilities were particularly appreciated, as were the staff who were friendly and helpful, for the most part. The room was pleasant, with good amenities. At the time I visited (southern winter) the pool was being renovated and the hotel had hot water problems, but the latter was fixed within 24 hours.
    P D, gb4 night business trip
    Good 6.0
    My stay was nothing to write home about. The hotel itself is quite dated, but none the less clean and quite. The room is quite large and comfortable, but the water pressure and heat in the shower was not good. I found the reception team to be a little unfriendly. The resturant was pleasant, service was excellent, food average, however limited choices and quite expensive.
