Ufulu Gardens is a bit out of town and has nice gardens, decent pool and a good restaurant. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Really nice bed linen, own kettle, lots of storage and a desk. Restaurant has a good range of dishes and quality is good. The prawns and fillet steak are worth mentioning. Also decent bar with...

Ufulu Gardens is set on the very edge of the city of Lilongwe. There is a main reception with dining room, bar and meetings room. Outside is a large covered patio leading down to an outdoor bar and pool. The grounds are landscaped and the trees full of birds. Bedrooms are located a very short distance away and are suites...

I'm sitting in room 18 in Ufulu Gardens as I write this, having come back here again after staying last week. This is a lovely spacious room that's recently been re-decorated; the whole complex is green and has lovely gardens, a nice-looking place. The staff are courteous and polite and the food in the restaurant/bar is good and reasonably-priced. However:...

I stayed here overnite, before heading to Blantyre city. This is a sprawling property with immaculately maintained gardens and foliage. The silence occasionally interrupted with chirping birds is to be experienced to believe.

The hotel is located in area 43... one of the nicer locations in Lilongwe. I stayed here for a fairly long time and got pretty comfortable. The rooms are super clean and the staff extremely nice and helpful. I had a plumbing issue and once reported the staff instantly came over to fix it and moved me when they realized...

I stayed here for weeks and weeks on a business trip. I slept well and found a good running route near the hotel, although the city shuts down incredible early. The beds were comfortable and the food in the hotel (I've had literally every meal they offer) was good for Lilongwe. The staff are also friendly and they took credit...

The first time we stayed in Ufulu Gardens was a couple of years ago and we had a nasty experience with a blocked toilet. The flushing mechanism did not work properly and several times, a poor lady had to come in to unblock the toilet. This year however, there was a marked improvement though if you are sharing, the flushing...

I was very impressed with the rooms they are so nice and spacious and the showers are excellent. However the bathtub was dirty and stained. The food was great though thumbs up. The customer service leaves alot to be desired. There is something dead about the place. The staff have no sense of urgency and do things at their own...
