The atmosphere, friendly service, good food, cold beers and value for money. This is one of my favourite places in Blantyre and I have never been disappointed. Friendly waiters and host made it the perfect evening.

Honest food, very very good noodles and music they play there is awesome. Chilled out atmosphere. Free wifi!

Chez Maky is a great, friendly place to have a meal, enjoy some music, or stay in one of several rooms and casitas on premises. Free and fast wireless throughout, this is my first choice to stay in Blantyre. I travel a lot for work, and a sterile, boring hotel without free wireless is not my idea of a productive and relaxing place to stay. That said, the best part of staying or visiting Chez Maky is Maky himself, the proprietor, who truly cares about his guests. Maky will go out of his way to make your stay - for a cup of coffee or for a month - a memorable one. Do yourself a favor while you're in Blantyre; skip places like the Mt. Sochi Hotel in favour of Chez Maky - you'll be glad you did.

Maky's grills are excellent, and one can enjoy the meals looking out over Blantyre, or tucked down by the pool. Maky is an outstanding host, and makes one feel very at home. Trip Advisor doesn't allow one to review the guesthouse - I don't understand why! It has the staff, individual rooms, great service. I stayed almost a week there, and was very comfortable.

Chez Maky is a charming restaurant tucked away in a lovely neighborhood. Ask to sit on the veranda for a wonderful view of Blantyre. Lunch and supper. Food is good, too.
