We arrived early from South Luangwa NP but it wasn't a problem to check in and were showed our rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and comfortable. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant. It was very tasty and cooked to perfection. Even it is a rather larger hotel, it has not the atmosphere of a railway station. In my opinion the best place to stay in Chipata.
