I booked a room at the Protea for a short noticed business trip.
I usually do not stay in hotels this expensive, 180 USD a night is way beyond my budget.
Service is good, a bit slow but the staff is really nice and acknowledge the customer, and call you by your family name after 12hr, it does the trick, you feel special :)
I did appreciate the gym, well maintained and very clean. Food was good and they have very good coffee.
The hotel is very central, if you have that type of budget i guess it's worth it.
However, this is personal, I am used to staying in less fancy place and managed to find a very decent place in Blantyre for half the price.
