Lonely Planet review

This stately monolith is the oldest established hotel in Malawi; opened in 1922 it was a legendary stop for travellers on the Cape-to-Cairo route. With its wood-panelled lobby, elegant restaurant, pool and gym and bar, it remains the premier choice of business people.

Rooms deserve the four-star rating with stylish fittings, huge beds and sumptuous decor. Ryalls also runs the superb 21 Grill on Hanover next door. There's also a Wilderness Safaris office here to help you arrange trips to nearby Liwonde National Park.
