Cluny lodge managed by a really nice couple. They take personal care of you and ensure that you are well taken care of. Breakfast is really good, and they even run errands for you if you need assistance. they don't have that many rooms so you need to book in advance. The lodge is close to old town and not...

Always a comfortable stay at the Cluny Lodge. Even with a few temporary power outages, Marinus and his staff worked overtime to get things quickly back to normal. Food and service were excellent. Very personable. The new Tea Garden is spacious and relaxing. I'll be back!

I spent nine delightful days at Cluny Lodge; Bev and Marinus were excellent hosts; the staff were very friendly, welcoming, and most accommodating. The Lodge was a quiet,peaceful respite after a long day working in the capital. My room was comfortable and had all the amenities I needed. The daily breakfast, included, had a variety of choices; I especially enjoyed...

I stayed at Cluny Lodge for six nights and have nothing but good to say. Marinus, Bev, and all the staff made me feel welcome and cared for from the moment of my arrival.

I stayed two weeks at Cluny Lodge in April 2016 and loved it. Poached eggs and pancakes were my favorite breakfast, but they'll cook you anything you like. Supper in the big dining room was always delightful. People engaged in all sorts of interesting work converged every night at 7 for a family style meal. The hosts were careful to...

I had an absolutely great time staying at Cluny Lodge - it really felt like a home away from home. The owner, Marinus, was incredibly attentive and helpful, it felt like being welcomed into a friend's home. He even went out to buy me a new phone charger when mine broke! The breakfast is great, the rooms are huge with...

I have traveled to Malawi over the past 12 years and there is no place better than Cluny Lodge when it comes to a safe friendly and very accommodating host.

I'm pleased to write a very strong review for the Cluny Lodge. I must say that my two week stay there exceeded my high expectations based on the reviews I had read beforehand. Regarding the price of lodging, and keeping in mind that accommodation in Lilongwe is generally expensive, is quite fair value all things considered. The lodge is located...

This is a lovely place, a gated compound with two houses, and guards caring for the comings-and-goings of the guests. The owners did everything to make our one night stay pleasant, including arranging drivers, suggesting restaurants, making sure everything was very clean and safe. We arrived in a heat wave, but the air conditioning took care of that. We heard...
