Comfortable Stay
The breakfast offering needs to improve , the dinner food quality is good but the breakfast options are not good and the preparation needs to improve and quality needs an improvement. The rooms are comfortable and clean, old school but very comfortable.

Central hotel chain great for business traveler
Great hotel close to the center of town. We had to take taxis to dinner, but they were not expensive - 2000 to 4000 kwacha. The hotel staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great with fresh Mzuzu coffee in a french press. The gym was also perfect for an after-work treadmill run. The hotel is part of a chain in Malawi - it is a bit dated but it was comfortable and a nice place to come back after long days of traveling in the car. It's probably the most expensive place in the area so probably more appropriate for business travelers. We went out for dinner every night.

Nice hotel in Mzuzu
THere are not many options in Mzuzu. THis is a 1970s hotel, so a bit dated in that sense, but v friendly staff, fantastic breakfast, wifi mostly ok and they have back up generators (electricity goes off often in Mzuzu).

Only Hotel we could find in Mzuzu
Although quite impersonal, and the room could do with a good clean , had one of the best nights sleep in large twin bed. Room a bit small & sound proofing not complete. Nice staff & good breakfast Buffett & home made bread!
