I have been using Trip Advisor for many years. This is my first review. It has to be shared that the Cluny Lodge is truly a paradise of comfort, serenity, kindness, and care. The owners are incredibly considerate and attentive. The staff are organized to respectfully ensure guests experience a quiet haven during stays. My time in Lilongwe came with... More

In July and August 2013 I spent 5 weeks in Malawi and decided for Cluny Lodge to be the place to stay the night after arrival and the two night before leave. The owners are lovely people who really care for their customers. If you book here, they keep in contact, book your taxi from the airport and provide whatever... More

This is our second time staying at Cluny Lodge, and the service and accommodation is simply excellent. This time my husband and I stayed for an entire month in one of their standard rooms. We didn't have one complaint. Rooms are kept very clean, free t.v. and wifi is available. There is also a work room for consultants or business... More

Cluny Lodge is operated by Bev and Marinus Taale in a quiet residential area of Lilongwe. Excellent accommodations and food with wonderful service and security. Walking distance to a great Chinese restaurant. Book early as it has a limited number of rooms.

Good service, large rooms, perfect hosts, good food and beautiful grounds, what more could you ask? Bev and Marius operate a very comfortable hotel. The location couldn't be better. You can walk to everything although Lilongwe isn't much of a walking town.

A big thank you to Bev and Marinus for putting up with all 8 of us taking over the place! It was a perfect set up for our day long excursions and evening debriefings with local officials. The rooms were inviting and clean. We had no issues with internet connectivity. Both Bev and Marinus went out of their way to... More

Always a pleasure to see Bev and Marinus and to stay at their homely,comfortable Lodge.If you want an identikit hotel this is not for you. The owners ensure a great stay and are always on hand to assist and advise.
