    Awesome place to be in solitude. Wonderful breakfast. Beware of monkeys. A place to rejuvenate yourself. Best place to be spent with your better half. It's 1hr drive from Blantyre. A visit to stable plateaus was a nice experience. It's an ideal weekend getaway.

    The journey up the mountain to the hotel was as spectacular as the hotel itself. It is perfectly situated for a panoramic view across the whole of Malawi and the staff were friendliness itself. The food is a little basic, but well cooked and tasty.

    The views and the gardens are magnificent and romantic. The main building have this beautiful thick wall reminding one of a castle. The rooms are ok and the food quite good. Great hikes in the area. However be careful if you are only one couple....More
