Reviewed 20 October 2011

A colleague and I stayed here for three nights earlier this month when we were in Blantyre on business.

The cost per room was US$117.50, which is high for what one gets but is, relatively speaking, a bargain compared to the room rate of US$222.00 for the Protea Ryalls.

The Inn was very clean but the rooms are somewhat spartan, although some evidence of upgrading is there. However, the air-conditioning did not work and there were also problems with the TVs and the 'phones.

We ate breakfast once (my colleage then confined herself to a bowl of cereal thereafter), It was adequate, but although jam and honey were advertised on the menu, we were told that "we have run out".

Peter, the manager on duty, on the day we checked in and was extremely professional and helpful. However, his woman colleague, who appears to alternate with him, was supremely lethargic.

There is a driver available but when we booked him to take us to Casa Mia Restaurant in town one evening, he did not know where it was and kept on driving around talking to himself - presumably seeking to find inspiration as to just where this restaurant might be. (We eventually ended up at 21 on Hannover because he had driven past it more than once. (This restaurant was very good - much better (and cheaper) than the restaurant in the adjoining Ryalls Hotel, by the way)).

Averaging out the service, we would therefore only rate it as average.

I appreciate that Malawi is experiencing all sorts of challenges at present, but, given that Blantyre is the commercial centre of Malawi, we expected more of the Mount Pleasant Inn.
