Good clean rooms well appointed, great showers super poolside bar and Sky Sports to allow us to watch football. We even had the bar to ourseleves and they let us have an honest box ( well leave the number of empty bottles) to add to our bill. Food was a bit basic and on the one day we have lunch.... very slow to arrive but everything was good when we got it!

The last 1km of the way to go to the lodge is awful, with lots of huge potholes (see photo). You have to drive at 10km/h to reduce the risks of a flat tire. There’s nothing in a walking distance from the lodge so having a car is recommended. The room we had was actually two rooms, one with a double bed and other with two single beds. Only the first had air conditioning. Room also had one small fridge. It was in first floor, with some steps (they offered to help with luggage). Continental breakfast is good. Free parking with security. Stayed for two nights and had no wifi at all, despite the effort of the owners to fix it. The couple who run the lodge is committed to keep upgrading the place but so far for USD 125 a night it should be way better. Previous reviews says that booking online costs the double than simply walk in. For USD 125 I would try other places first but for USD 50 I would come back.

Rooms are OK. Staff is fine. But good things about this place finishes here. Too far away from just everything. There is simply nothing nearby. You need to have your private vehicle with you to access any place from here. The price they charge through online bookings is just double the price you will pay at walk in. I am sure there are other better choices in Blantyre.

Top Lodge is 4 kilometers from the centre of the City of Blantyre approximately a minute drive. One takes Glyne Jones Road and the directional signs takes one to the Lodge. If one wants a quiet and private environment, then Top Lodge is best choice in Blantyre. It is also ideal for business meetings. Its spacious and secure parking offers guests and option to have own transport. The top floor rooms are very interesting as they all have balconies for outside view.

Absolutely superb. Homely atmosphere with very modern facilities. If you want to avoid crowded, noisy city centre hotels this is the place to be. A true home away from home. I would recommend it for your honeymoon!!
