This is an excellent hotel with good customer service. Comfortable rooms, courteous staff and an ambient and relaxing atmosphere. My only negative comment is that the pool is not maintained properly and I was not able to swim as it looked dirty. After I made this comment to the front desk they assured me that next time it will be clean so we will see. Otherwise this is an excellent hotel but just let down by this one area.

Pleasant well set out property on outskirt of Mzuzu on main road. Good amenities and service. Very efficient staff. Much better value than Rival sunbird.

10/10 Exceptional

I stopped in Mzuzu for what was meant to be a quick overnight trip, and has turned into an almost 2-week visit. When I arrived, I checked in easily and went to my room. We then went out to do some errands. When I returned, I admit I was a bit rude with one of the front desk employees because there had been some kind of an issue with their ability to verify my payment through Expedia. He was a pure professional despite my attitude, for which I later apologized. The staff here are incredible. From the housekeepers, laundry, restaurant, bellman (watch out, he's a boxer!) and more. The restaurant on site has a very diverse menu of great choices, and room service was always prompt and on point. This will be my hotel of choice when I am visiting Mzuzu. The owners and managers should be proud of their team and performance.
