The lodge is very homely and located in the beautiful town of Zomba, like an hour from Blantyre. I stayed there for 5 days and I must say the food is average at best and it takes long to get it ready. Breakfast was served like in a prison. You hold your plate and let the servers splash the tiny...

Annie's was comfortable and clean and with Malawian Charm...If you have a heavy bag, have the driver DRIVE up the windy road to your room, at least the ones that are up the steep hillside behind the reception and restaurant. We learned the hard way!

I stayed 14 days while doing some volunteer work in Malawi. My room (41) had a small kitchen with sink, refrigerator, water heater. Very large room, nice bath, desk. A good place to work. You do need to be able to walk up some steps to get to the rooms. Monkeys on the roof every morning. Good bed and very...

We booked a weekend stay here, for a couple. The hotel was close to empty, but despite that we were give a room in which 1) my husband had to fix the shower before we could use it; 2) the key unlocked the door from the outside, but not from the inside, which we discovered when we got up in...

Staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. Andrew behind the bar was always smiling :-) The rooms were huge, beds comfy and all our rooms had mosquito nets and even the extra bonus of tea/coffee facilities in room. Plus wifi which you could buy - in our experience a luxury not everywhere had this facility. Yes of course it...

We stayed here 2 nights while hiking the Zomba plateau. Annie's provided us with the basics: a room (033) with a good big bed, a mosquito net, secure electricity (which is valuble in Malawi at present), a fan and a workable bathroom. The room is kept very clean by the housekeeping staff. And if you are in an executive room...

This should be a nice hotel but it needs a lot of attention and much better management. The staff were very pleasant but failed to respond to some of the problems with the rooms. There was no hot water in any of our rooms to start with, and none in some of the rooms for the several nights of our...

A group of us stayed here recently for one night as we travelled around Malawi. Of all the places we stayed this was one of the better ones. Very nice staff, spacious and clean room with good sized en-suite shower room, but when wet the floor was very slippery. The buffet restaurant was also clean and served wholesome food. A...
