We stayed here at the beginning of November 2011 as a party of 6 couples. When we arrived the power was off (a regular occurrence in Malawi) so we could only get an impression of the room by candlelight. As the generator gave power to the bar we all met there and stayed eating and drinking until midnight and having a great night.
When we got to our room we found that the mosquito net over the bed was full of flies and possibly mosiquito's, fortunatelt there was a single bed in the room too with a clean net so we both squeezed into that. If I'd had the mini bus keys we would have slept in there. The toilet and shower were outside in a 'hut' with no door and you couldn't keep soap or toilet paper in there because the baboons steal them.
One other couple with us had a similar room / toilet / shower arrangment but all the other couples had en suite rooms, some with air con and some on two levels with two balconies and up to 4 beds.
We really liked the stting of this lodge, it has great views, we found the food good, the pool OK but your satisfaction will really depend on the type of room you get.
