Delicious breakfast made to order included in the price. Beautiful room with very functional shower - this is a rarity in Malawi. Nice lounge with TV and people. I really enjoyed my stay there, and it seems that many of the other guests are regulars. Definitely recommend.

I love staying at Nelly's -- it's like a home away from home!
