Amazing view
The hotel has an amazing view over the town and area.It is situated high on a mountain.Dinner and breakfast was excellent. The rooms are old but very spacious and clean.I think the mattresses need replacement, but overall I would rate the comfort above average.

Great hotel location, food a disappointment
Beautiful hotel at the ridge of Zomba plateau with a fantastic view. We had a superior room which is one of the best rooms we had for a long time. Good place for some splendid walks around the plateau or just relaxing. The food was unfortunately not up to the standard for the hotel. Slow service in the evening for a dry and overdone beef, and at lunch we experienced a very ordinary buffet far too overpriced. A pity that the food is not up to par for the rest of the hotel.
