Comfortable rooms, attentive staff. I forgot my toothbrush and upon asking reception, had one delivered to my room within minutes. Great coffee for breakfast and excellent variety. A little slow on check out. Internet was very fast. Good quality Skype calls to US.

The hotel is lovely surprise with very nice room and extremely friendly staff. Everything I needed from Restaurants to bar to wifi were on hand. The rooms are comfortable and spacious for a business trip. Wifi works very well and comes with the cost of the room. I had the buffet which was Indian theme and was pleasant. The hotel... More

Located in the central district of Blantyre this hotel has a friendly staff, comfortable rooms and good restaurant facilities. Our room was at the rear of the hotel and was clean and quiet. Breakfast provided a good choice of foods and nothing seemed to be too difficult for the staff to provide. Indeed, all the staff seemed to enjoy their... More

I was in Blantyre for a short business trip. Sunbird Mount Soche had been booked because it was conveniently located in the central business district of Blantyre, at a walking distance of most businesses. As with the their other facility in Lilongwe, the first and strongest point of Sunbird is their staff. There is something in their smiles that is... More

Of all the places in Blantyre, we ended up here for a few nights. Compared to everywhere else in Malawi and Southern Africa.. This hotel is way over priced ($180 per night) with tiny rooms with old facilities. To top it off they only offer 350mb of [very slow] internet per day, and anything over that is very expensive. There... More

Stayed here again, and was not disappointing, hotel nicely placed in Blantyre. Staff very friendly. Meals fine. Did not have an aircon that worked and was VERY hot at night.. But once reported it took a day to fix, then all good.

The room was very clean and always had the necessary amenities. Slightly confined in size for a proper deluxe experience, probably owing to fact that the hotel was built ages ago, but this is offset by the quality of everything put in the room and a very good customer service. The hotel has a big well tended garden with a... More

Room selection is key. Some have better water, some have better internet, some are quieter, some have a view... Over 3 weeks at the hotel, I moved around a bit and couldn't find one with all of these... No worries, the staff friendliness makes up for any of shortcomings. The restaurant is very good. Service is prompt, food tasty and... More

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
