Satisfactory hotel with okay facilities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. the hotel is centrally located and within close distance of the the main locations/nightlife. The city is pleasant and a bit slower paced than the country's capital - Lilongwe. However, relative to other cities, Lilongwe itself is not very hectic. My personal sense is that Blantyre has the feel... More

It has been some years since I was last at Mount Soche. I found the same top class customer service. The rooms remain small. They also remain very clean and well taken care of. There is a nice addition since I last visited. Now there is a well equipped fitness centre. That's a big plus for me. Keep it up... More

Stayed for a week whilst on business in Blantyre. Hotel was great, good restaurant (Picasso's) and great staff. Felt very secure with guarded gate and guards on each floor. The hotel is centrally located, so a lot of traffic around. It is round the corner from Bombay Palace and Grill 21 restaurants, both of which are a must try! The... More

I was staying at Mount Soche several times in the last two years. The rooms are in a relatively good shape and comfortable, although some of them may need a face lifting. Service is also as expected, staff is friendly, although not always so efficient, some times it takes time at check-out. Restaurant "Picasso" is good, enough choice and good... More

The rooms are clean, the service is good and the free breakfast has many options. The gym could use some maintenance but I used the weights and bike just fine. I enjoyed staying here and would do so again.
