      Very much enjoyed my short stay there. Good gardens and lots of birds. Easy walks on the surrounding paths and the dogs come with you. Large room. Friendly owners and staff. Vegetarian meal rather bland but ok. Relaxed place, good quality but not 'posh'. Might not suit everyone if they are looking for all mod con 5 star but very much my sort of place.

      as below, vegetarian meal could be more tasty.

      This place is AMAZING value for money! We stayed here the night before flying out and it was so comfortable. Large rooms, comfy beds, friendly staff and a very safe place to stay. They even went the extra mile for us, getting some items from the local store, and cooking us dinner.

      The road is VERY bad to the property!! But I guess that is not their fault! There could be a signpost at the road as we got a bit lost trying to find it!

      Excellent location. Pretty good bar prices (but some food wasn’t that great). Rooms in general were above average for a backpacker I reckon. Having a beer in front of the sunset is unforgettable. Great mosquito nets by the beds

    • Negative section of review

      No wifi as promised. Some staff drunk 24/7 (but - very, very nice staff overall, so no complaints about them). Friendly and professional bar staff (unlike many other places during our travels). I don’t have high standards but the beds in the private rooms were very uncomfortable and you could literally feel the wooden panels under the mattress.

      The road ends at the barracks, then you need to follow like 200 meters and turn at the entrance of a village to a dirt road for like 2 km. In the dark and not on a 4X4, I wasn't quite sure we would make it. The exterior wall is not even finished and a lot of construction is still around. The AC was only working on a single temperature, TV was not connected to electricity as there was not an adapter, after a while we managed to figure out how to turn on the lights (thing that the concierge was unable). Bathroom: no toilet paper, the shower was emitting some electricity static but managed to take a quick one, visible broken tiles and holes. We woke up and no electricity. after a while it came, but no running water so we decided to go for breakfast. Very simple one. Everything already made when there were 3 attendants doing absolutely nothing and more in the kitchen.

      This is a good budget option on the outskirts of Limbe. The rooms are large. The bed very comfortable. The shower was hot and they have a generator for when the power goes off. They serve foods and drinks. Staff very polite and helpful.

      The menu for dinner was just one or two items and a set breakfast plate of egg, bread and chips. Come prepared for mosquitos (the beds have good nets). Arrive in daylight if you don't have transport as it is some distance from the main road. The water in the pool didn't look very inviting.

      The camping grond next door, that also belongs to the hotel but has everything separate, had unfortunately almost from morning till night music playing loudly. It definitely interfered when you were outside, luckily we didn't hear too much inside the room with the AC on.

The place is spotless, open and efficient and the food was limited but fresh and delicious. Great place to stay even for a night but a must as a home away from home!

      Excellent breakfast and evening meals - by any standard. As a result I used the restaurant, which is clearly popular with the (more well healed) locals each evening although I would usually like to try different places. Walking distance to the major conference hotels and CBD for those who like a leg stretch although I suggest this is best done only during daylight hours as the road is not well lit and poorly paved. The staff were friendly, efficient and quick to organise taxi's, print boarding passes etc and generally assist where ever possible. Half hour drive to airport.

      The 'family rooms' are actually what many would consider normal sized rooms. My business partner was not too happy with the 'standard' room feeling it was a bit too small. As one would expect internet is not the fastest but quite adequate to keep e mail etc under control. The lodge has a generator for times when the Blantyre electricity supply is under pressure
