This was my second visit for work and just like the first visit, the service and warmth of Mel, Tom, and the staff were wonderful. They were even willing to put a warm plate of food in my room after usual dinner hours when I let them know I would be returning very late. Lovely and quiet--a respite after some...

We spent five nights in all (3+2) at Wendels and thoroughly recommend it. Service is very personal and very helpful. Rooms are fine, with air conditioning and all modcons. Location is very quiet yet convenient. What's not to like?

I just spent a week at Wendels and simply loved it. This will be my preferred hotel in Malawi. Mel, Tom and Amos were simply great. The three of them treated our team like family from the minute we walked through the garden gates to the time we left, we simply felt at home. We had dinner at Wendels a...

Travelling on my own to Malawi, it was great to be staying at Wendels. Relaxing yet able to do my work too, in lovely surroundings and a comfy room. Mel really looked after me and all her staff were absolutely delightful.

Really couldn't praise this place enough. Many thanks to Mel and Tom for making me, my wife and toddler son most welcome. Our couple of days here were excellent. Rooms are pleasant, food was good and staff were excellent.

Good hospitality in a cosy atmosphere. Wendels feels quite homely, which can be much nicer than larger hotels. The rooms are comfortable and clean, which is all one needs for a few days visit. All rooms face the pool, set in a nice lush garden. The owners and the staff are very friendly, checking on your needs and ensuring you...

For me, I don't need to look any further in Lilongwe. I've now stayed at 4 different places and this one is my favorite. By far, what impresses me most is the gracious hospitality offered by Tom and Mel. They are warm and easy going but also know how to give people space. They do a lot of behind the...

This was my third stay at Wendels and each time I experience an Oasis of peace and quiet, a homely atmosphere, friendly hosts, good service, excellent food, birdsinging in the morning, clean and functional rooms and a blissful absence of TV in the rooms. A pleasant and personal alternative to the big hotels and my preferred place to stay in...

I loved everything about this place. I think they have about eight rooms, all which face the pool. The rooms are clean and comfortable and even though a group of seven colleagues (from another company) occupied the other rooms, I didn't hear much noise from my room. The grounds are lovely and you can find many places to sit and...

Wendels was the ideal place to stay for a short business trip. The rooms and grounds were clean, the staff was kind and very accommodating. Wendels is a good jumping point for most locations around Lilongwe yet the property is quiet and relaxing.

“This is a perfect place for those working in Lilongwe. The konde serves as an excellent place for those impromptu business meetings, with options for tea or lunch as you like (yes of course you pay for this-but very fair price). The rooms are good for 1-2 people (various options avail). Fridge and press coffee pot in each room so I bring coffee with me or have tea in the room on occasion.”
