I have stayed in the hotel twice, in March and April 2017. On both occasions I have found the staff friendly and helpful. If you are expecting all the mod cons found in a top European/American chain you will be disappointed. The rooms are a little tired but clean and comfortable. The shower was good and strong. Breakfast was included...

Great location and pretty grounds Breakfast was included with our business stay and was solid. The room was average but adequate- quiet and relatively comfortable. The AC was good. There was a guard on our floor for security. The wifi was unacceptably bad and could really only be used in the lobby. Unfortunately there is no lobby seating - so...

Mount Soche usually represented for me an upper standard solid business hotel in the centre of Blantyre. After a recent case of theft and the subsequent unprofessional behavior of the General Manager, I have had to change my opinion. The theft took place in the hotel pub near closing time around 10 pm. The next day I reported the theft...

I stayed at Mount Soche, for 2 nights during a quick business trip to Malawi. The room offered to me, left much more to desire. But, its OK when we know that the country is grappling with energy issues and hence the air-con & similar creature comforts in room may not be operational always. The restaurants offered tasty options with...

This came out to be a hidden gem in a place like Blantyre in Malawi. I had previously stayed in Protea and Victoria hotels. The property is very well kept. Staff are courteous and friendly. Just behind the bar is a beautiful small lawn well kept. Nice place to relax with a drink. Rooms are spacious, washrooms are clean. The...
