I stayed at Cluny Lodge for six nights and have nothing but good to say. Marinus, Bev, and all the staff made me feel welcome and cared for from the moment of my arrival. The room was very clean, very comfortable, and any extra services I needed like cleaning clothes, shoes, etc. we're done perfectly. I ate breakfast and dinner... More

I stayed two weeks at Cluny Lodge in April 2016 and loved it. Poached eggs and pancakes were my favorite breakfast, but they'll cook you anything you like. Supper in the big dining room was always delightful. People engaged in all sorts of interesting work converged every night at 7 for a family style meal. The hosts were careful to... More

I had an absolutely great time staying at Cluny Lodge - it really felt like a home away from home. The owner, Marinus, was incredibly attentive and helpful, it felt like being welcomed into a friend's home. He even went out to buy me a new phone charger when mine broke! The breakfast is great, the rooms are huge with... More

I have traveled to Malawi over the past 12 years and there is no place better than Cluny Lodge when it comes to a safe friendly and very accommodating host. They go out of their way to make sure their guest are completely satisfied. I have had to modify my trip at the last moment and they were very flexible... More

I'm pleased to write a very strong review for the Cluny Lodge. I must say that my two week stay there exceeded my high expectations based on the reviews I had read beforehand. Regarding the price of lodging, and keeping in mind that accommodation in Lilongwe is generally expensive, is quite fair value all things considered. The lodge is located... More

This is a lovely place, a gated compound with two houses, and guards caring for the comings-and-goings of the guests. The owners did everything to make our one night stay pleasant, including arranging drivers, suggesting restaurants, making sure everything was very clean and safe. We arrived in a heat wave, but the air conditioning took care of that. We heard... More

The owners are very very very friendly and accomodate to your needs. I had to leave for the airport at six and they made sure I had breakfast, including fried eggs, at 5:30 am. They gave us free Wifi cards, which would have cost 1200 MK each normally. If you want a cozy place with friendly people, this is the... More

Marinus and Bev are the kindest couple to greet you after a series of long red-eyes into the country. Cluny Lodge is tucked away from the main streets, allowing for a peaceful sleep with lots of birds to watch frolick in the front yard fountain if you wake early enough. Breakfast is fast, large and delicious. All the employees are... More

My husband and I just completed a 10 day stay at Cluny Lodge. The accommodations were great and very quiet. They have such a lovely garden setting. It was so peaceful to sit out on the porch or in the spacious shared living room. We stayed in the suite which had its own living room as well. The food was... More
