My initial impressions when we checked in was good... Friendly and helpful staff. Room was very small. Linen and towels bright white and of very good quality. Aircon and kettle did not work. Room was on first floor above the restaurant, smell of food through the extractor fans outside my window really made me feel sick! Very early (before 5am)... More

The hotel looks unpre-posing from the outside but the staff make this a very good place to stay. They were courteous and went out of their way to be helpful. The food in the restaurant was good and the room was clean, comfortable and very spacious. An excellent business hotel

The carpets in rooms and lobbies were disgusting. Towels and linen were grubby and grey. Breakfast room had cockroaches crawling along the floor. The Hotel had no BAR because the owners were Muslims, who are they to dictate whether I should be allowed to have an alcoholic drink. Check out they informed me they did not take MasterCard and then... More

Hotel Victoria in Blantyre Malawi promises much, but delivers very little! Whilst the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the room I stayed in had a problem with cockroaches and numerous other little beetles. Whilst there a signs indicating that the tap water is safe to drink, I am afraid that the brown colour put me off and I would not... More

From the outside appears as a reasonable hotel. The delux rooms were okish but for 45000 MWK ($135) per night, one would expect a better deal. The room, the linen and towels were clean but worn out. A couple of tv channels available and the wi-fi was paid extra. The breakfast was below average. The lift was broken and once... More

The Executive suites are great and the staff are helpful. There is internet that has to be paid for (Not free) and yet it is slow. The TVs are old and have free channels to be watched. It is very clean and neat. The bathrooms in the suites are great and clean.

Surroundings pleasant enough but did not quite live up to expectations. The place was unlit and deserted for a large part of the time. Lots of noise from the conference crowd. Restaurant was packed to beyond capacity at lunch hour, making for a not too restful meal compounded by forgetful service. Akward parking facilities behind a one way street. Also... More
