          I can't wait to go back to Lilongwe so I can stay here again. The grounds are expansive and there's not only a fire pit with swings around it, but a TIRE SWING! You can walk to City Mall, Shoprite, and the AXA station from...More

          We stayed at Mabuya a couple of times on our recent trip to Malawi, great service, great food and very helpful staff. Nice relaxed atmosphere and a friendly bar. Good standard of facilities which were clean and tidy.

          The food was excellent and the owners were really friendly and helpful. It is a good place to hangout in the evening. It is quite rough round the edges and needs a good clean! It also felt a little bit over priced. Would stay there...More
