    Very helpful staff. The trip up the plateau is worth a go and the breakfast is sumptuous! The hotel has lovely gardens and the rooms were nice and big. Our family of 5 fit in one room, which is a definite plus!!

    Awesome place to be in solitude. Wonderful breakfast. Beware of monkeys. A place to rejuvenate yourself. Best place to be spent with your better half. It's 1hr drive from Blantyre. A visit to stable plateaus was a nice experience. It's an ideal weekend getaway.
