    Great value. Great service.

    Stayed for 8 nights in the economy chalet which is a small studio with a kitchenette and fridge. The place has all the amenities that you need. Quality is good and price is very fair. The pool is very inviting and is cleaned every morning and the property has great views of Blantyre. The location is a bit far from city center (expect USD5 for a trip) but you have Shoprite and a mall within walking distance 1.5kms only.

    Mixed Regrets

    I love taking punts on locations which offer on paper nothing much to imagine. So was delighted however with the charm the Chinyonga district revealed on my arrival. Sadly my overall experience at the Guesthouse was an unqualified down let with its only redeeming feature being the absolutely relentless hospitality of Isa the domestic assistant who tried his absolute best to alleviate the imperfections. However very little could be done to assuage the erratic supply of electricity which knocks everything else out including the Wifi (limited), running water to have a shower or indeed flush the toilet. Isa and his fellow colleagues were charming and genuinely warm in delivering their service provision. I doubt if the proprietors will pass on my superlatives but hope in their standard acknowledgement of my review, they move closer to improving the basic conditions for their guests.
