Just back from a two week work trip in Malawi and spent one night at the pottery lodge. Compared to other places I stayed along the way the pottery lodge is nice and clean but was very quiet,perhaps too quiet if you are on your own. No Internet meant it wasn't great for a work trip but I only stayed one night so it wasn't a major issue. The rooms were clean, beds comfy and staff all very pleasant. The food was nice and came really quickly, breakfast the next morning offered a good variety- homemade marmalade was very tasty as was the coffee. All in all it was a nice play to stay if you need to be in dedza.
