We stayed here on a short stopover en route to South Luwanga for one night and it was a pleasant surprise. Friendly staff upon arrival welcomed us and settled us very comfortably in the well furnished rooms. All rooms non smoking which made our stay there more pleasant . Food selection very good although menu items were missing ,but there is a huge opportunity to make the food from "just great" to "excellent". I would definitely stay there on my next visit to Chipata , highly recommended when looking for accommodation in Chipata.
