I would like to say that the staff front of the reception was very kind and helpful. The hotel itself is look like a labyrinth, I think it is because of expanding hotel building. The hotel was very safe. Rooms were clean enough. Breakfast was not bad but coffee was excellent. Restaurant was average. You should not forget close your... More

Very close to old town which is worth exploring. we were here only for a... More

The wifi works really well in most rooms and the lobby area. There is a gym and swimming pool as well. The copper pot restraunt within the hotel grounds is fantastic.... More

I traveled with 2 colleagues on business in Blantyre. We stayed at the Crossroads because we held a meeting in one of their conference rooms. The rooms are perfectly fine but the wifi strength depends greatly on which room you are in. Also, some rooms are quiet and others are very noisy. The breakfast is fantastic with lots of choice...

Despite only giving it three stars, I stay at the Crossroads whenever I am in Lilongwe. I don't really mind the tired furniture, the cracked bathroom tiles, the non-working aircon. I really love the friendly staff, the varied breakfast buffet, and the low-slung, garden-set architecture. The alternative, the Golden Peacock, is more modern etc., but way too clinical for me.

Overall three star at best. I stay in numerous hotels throughout Africa and Asia, and understand differences in local as to what expectations should be. Good: Bar man is fantastic; does his best in a bar that seems dark enough to be a night club. Breakfast buffet is very good with plenty of options. Henry who splits time between copper... More
