I stayed at Mount Soche, for 2 nights during a quick business trip to Malawi. The room offered to me, left much more to desire. But, its OK when we know that the country is grappling with energy issues and hence the air-con & similar creature comforts in room may not be operational always. The restaurants offered tasty options with...

Just behind the bar is a beautiful small lawn well kept. Nice place to relax with a drink. Rooms are spacious, washrooms are clean. The...

I would like to have more of an opinion on the Mt. Soche, as much as I wish that the views from the garden reflected the coffees and food in the restaurant- they just don't.

This is a hotel with an old setting and needs a renovation to modern times. The location is good and convenient with restaurants and places nearby. A hotel which does not have its own sauna needs to review its policy.
