“A little home away from home”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

This place gives you the feeling of home away from home with the proprietors taking personal initiative to attend to you. For those seeking a private, personalized stay very near Blantyre town and are on a budget...look no further.--Serah

The staff are very accommodating and friendly. Is equipped for needs of westerners: internet; hot showers; nice, clean rooms. The manager is exceptional, goes out of his way to ensure you are happy, and will have a drink with you. Swimming pool is excellent, salt not chlorinated, and is very clean. The large variety of food is very nice. Lovely views of the mountains. Site is secure, has a large gate which is bolted and who comes in is carefully monitored.

I have stayed at the location before. My stay was accommodated at very short notice and the owners are extremely flexible. Staff are friendly and professional. Clean rooms, Secure environment. Plenty of visiting international guests makes for good dinner conversations.

We stayed in a studio apartment, bedroom with separate living area/kitchenette. This was ideal for our needs as we could be independent while using the facilities when required. The swimming pool is outstanding, saline rather than chlorinated and great views over Blantyre and surrounding hills. Security is good. We hope to be back soon!

Hotel is located on a hill with great views. Owner is a bit weird. The room is clean but dull. Linen and the towel is very old. They serve great breakfast.

They should upgrade the room's look to make it a place where people will want to return. And a little less friendliness from the owner, please!

Great service from first arriving until leaving.Food was good . We stayed in budget room which was basic as expected.The waiter/receptionist was excellent and like most Malawians hard working yet friendly and respectful. The owner was lively and entertaining. Overall our stay here made our quick trip to Blantyre memorable.
