“Good quality hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2007

I liked this hotel although that in part was because i was upgraded to a suite (really just two adjoining rooms - one the bedroom, the other fitted out as a living area.) Even so the rooms were high quality -especially the bathrooms which were of a much higher standard than the rather tired counterparts in the sister hotel in Lilongwe. The dining room is bright and you can take your breakfast out in the pleasant green terrace. Upstairs there is a decent restaurant. Business facilties are good with cheap internet access in the business center and laptop connections in the bedrooms. The staff at check in and check out are efficient but I think those in Lilongwe are friendlier, but maybe that is because I stayed there a bit longer. Overall this is a quality hotel whre you pay business rates, but maybe a half of what you would pay in Europe for a comparable hotel.

  • Liked — High quality everywhere
  • Disliked — A bit impersonal

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2006

Spent one week at the hotel on business. Rooms were comfortable, with good bathroom and beds, some slightly better than others. No balcony, rooms facing the garden and pool are quieter than those facing the road.
Food was fine - tap water from the room was safe for the whole party after being boiled once, there are tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Good buffet breakfast (full English and continental) and lunch (mains, salads, very good desserts), the evening menu in the restaurant downstairs isn't great but is good, if a bit pricey, on the 5th floor restaurant. Vegetarians adequately covered.
The hotel bar is like a corridor but there's a sports bar in the hotel as well.
Business centre - slow internet.
Staff were generally helpful and pleasant.
Pool was big (and freezing).
Shopping - there was a craft stall set up outside the reception every day, although prices can be a bit more expensive than the craft market one block away. Nothing else available in the hotel but bookshops, supermarket etc nearby.
