Thank you for review and for choosing to stay with us. Apologies for the poor Wi-Fi, we have been migrating from one service provider to another and there are a few glitches that still need to be ironed out.

Business trip gave me a five night stay at this hotel. Well furnished room with a view out to the pool and gardens. Restaurant buffet good value with a good range available. Polite and courteous staff. Bar good although power cuts regularly hit they managed to keep the beer cool.

My first time staying here, and only because the regular place was fully booked. it took a while before my booking was confirmed, so because of this I was rather uncertain about it.

Beware. When you check in they take enough money to pay for your stay up front. It's all in Kwacha so it's not easy to know exactly how much they've taken. You do not get a receipt or any account for this payment. Now it so happened that in my case the booking had been done for ten days, although...

The service by the housekeeping staff was excellent. Internet connectivity was great. The food was great. The service overall was excellent. I enjoyed my stay.

This hotel rooms have been refurbished recently and is very good now. The food is also ok. Very nice bar and pool area.Staff very helpful. A bit worrying is the security guard on every floor. Why? At least you know you are safe.
