We had two rooms from May 23-28. One for my husband and I, and the other for our daughters, age 19 and 16. The new Lodge owner, Zino, was very helpful and friendly. We had several conversations with him and he took great interest in why our family was visiting Blantyre. He set up a water and land safari for... More

Continental breakfast with cooked breakfast on request in advance. Safes in each room. Also a good location for visitors to nearby Beit Cure hospital,... More

I have just returned from a work trip to Blantyre, where I stayed at Leslie Lodge. This was a second visit and everything was just as good as last time. Lynne and Ray are so helpful and welcoming and the staff are wonderful. I was in a different room this time but it was just as perfect for my needs.... More

I stayed for four days at Leslie Lodge and it was an all around great experience. First of all my room (no. 4) was large and very comfortable and very attractively decorated. It had enough space to include the beds as well as furniture to create a sitting area. The bathroom was large and nicely appointed and there was a... More

A group of us recently spent a number of nights in this very peaceful, charming lodge while working in the adjacent College of Medicine. Lynne is a most hospitable host and the staff are charming. Good breakfasts, spotless clean rooms with AC and good WiFi (you must pay for this but it works very well) Rooms have kitchenettes if you... More

Stayed two weeks on a business trip. The Lodge is unique in Blantyre. Intimate, well-run, beautifully-tended grounds, very clean, air-conditioned rooms and a pool (both a blessing during the dry, hot season when I was there). The two young duikers who live in the garden complete the charm of the place. It is a 5 min walk to Malawi College... More

I have just returned from a work trip to Malawi where I stayed at Leslie Lodge for two weeks. It was the perfect place to stay.
