I travelled with apprehension to Chipata wondering where I how I was going to live for three weeks. Was pleasantly surprised when I found this lovely hotel, well furnished, very polite and friendly staff. The rooms are good with comfortable beds and nice beddings. A decent variety of DSTV channels. The food is okay, not excellent, but not bad at all. My three weeks here will pass comfortably.
