Have been three times in 2014 at Mount Soche for business trips. No complains, rooms are clean, service is effective, staff is friendly and efficient, sometimes a bit slow. Best thing is the big garden. A couple of more tables would be great. Restaurant is good, although the choice for breakfast is somehow limited, but the quality is good. Ask... More

I stayed when there was a water supply problem and had to wash from a delivered bucket of water for 2 days. The pub and dining area is now furnished much more luxuriously with big leather seats and I couldnt help but wonder if the investment might not have been better made into larger water storage for guests wifi internet...

An average hotel, but a lot better than the Sunbirds in Lilongwe, but not as good as the Livingstonia one. The service is good, rooms clean and the staff very helpful. There is nothing outstanding or special. The food is acceptably average. The grounds are nice and the pool is good except when the local kids over swamp the pool... More

This is a reasonable place to stay on business in Blantyre, though slightly expensive compared to Dublin hotel prices, which I never thought particularly good value. The staff are friendly and the rooms and food OK but the wifi is terrible even if you pay extra for the hotspot vouchers and there is no gym, though I believe there is... More

Excellent reception with a nice view of Blantyre CBD and the great Mulanje Mountain on a bright day. Wonderful rooms, easy accessibility and very secure. Had a very nice breakfast and dinner that I will never forget. Excellent taste of chambo fish readily available and well prepared.

Stayed here for a week on a recent work trip. No complaints about the hotel or the service - if anything the service is a bit over enthusiastic! Lots of staff on duty at all times, all falling over themselves to be helpful - it can be a bit tiresome! But they were all lovely and I was pleased that... More

Spent 2 nights in this Real Comfy hotel in Blantyre. Located in a business district within walking distance to the major banks and crafts market, this 45 year old hotel (commissioned 1969) has really kept well. Sunbird Mount Soche is really homely with well kept lawns/landscape at the rear, though the swimming pool was "dry" during my stay. Meals, particularly... More

We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of a trip and one at the end. Rooms at the back, overlooking the garden, pool and mountain view are better than the front. The hotel is busy and bustling, staff are good and efficient and friendly. Nice terrace at the back, and the Picasso restaurant is good and decent value. Excellent central... More

5 nights in September 2013. Decent room, good restaurant, clean but a little small. The only hiccup I had was on check out when the front desk was confused about whether or not my company had prepaid. Isn't that so irritating? But overall worth staying if you are in Blantyre. Right in the heart of town so easy distance to... More
