Great place to stay would love to go back one day! really friendly people too. food was always to a very high standard, on time and tasty! Very welcoming!
I was in Malawi on a Cultural exchange trip between Scotland and Malawi, where there was 2 schools linked together meeting new people learning about their culture and them learning about ours, this is where we stayed while doing this.

Heuglin was the start and finish of a 3 week Malawi- Zambia Safari and this ressthouse was such a pleasant welcome and introduction to Africa hospitality and warmest of welcomes and time to get our feet on the ground before we headed out on our Holiday - the accommodation was excellent and food was 5 star - I doubt you will be disappointed with Heuglin -

This place is amazing for its hospitality and the unique way it operates. Guests have dinner together and the menu is fixed but let me assure you that the food is excellent. Even as a vegetarian, the variety and quality I received could not have been better. My room happened to be the biggest one in the lodge with a nice bathroom equipped with a bath and a shower but you get the rooms on first come first served basis so no guarantee on anything. Having said that, I saw a couple of the other rooms and they are all very nice and very different from each other. The swimming pool is clean and book lovers will probably find that relaxing next to the pool with a drink and one of the numerous books at the lodge is probably the best thing to do on hot days!

Room Tip: All rooms are good but avoid the room next to the entrance as that is the smallest one in the lodge.

I have stayed here twice over the past few years. Once with a friend and once with a group of school pupils. This is a very safe and comfortable guest house that caters for all dietery needs. The food was excellent and the accommodation was clean and modern, Th staff where very friendly and professiona at all times, willing to go the extra mile is required. TV and internet access available and a trust bar,tea and coffee available round the clock. Would have no hesitation in recommending or returning

I visit Lilongwe for 2 weeks per month and nearly always eat at Heuglins (and have been doing so for nearly 2 years now), although I have stayed here I now live in a company house. Reasons why I eat here - Food is always fantastic (the main Chef, Su, is very creative and will cater for any dietary requirements - he is also great fun) - the atmosphere is home from home - the communal table creates a great opportunity to meet other guests and I have had many very entertaining evenings there. Given that this is probably the best food in Lilongwe it is great value for money.

Went to Heuglins for dinner, beef was good. Honesty bar makes for a friendly atmosphere.

Management are friendly enough, but for the money, it must be said, there is better food elsewhere in Lilongwe. Not in many places, but its there.

One nice element is that everyone sits at the same table for dinner, so meeting people is easy and can make for a pretty fun night.
