Excellent accommodation and delightful staff taking care of every need when you stay here. We had meals delivered from the kitchen most evenings to cater for ourselves and our visitors in our lovely bungalow. We had 3 bedrooms with 3 en suite and an extra bathroom. Lashings of hot water and beautifully clean and comfortable

Small group of chalet style blocks. Ours had 3 lovely bedrooms all ensuite. Very nice kitchen and common area. This Guesthouse is quite new and the road leading from the main trunk road isn’t made up so a bit bumpy. Well worth it though for a lovely stay. Staff were very helpful

The rooms are sparkling clean with all the amenities you could want and more. Flat Screen TV (with plenty of channels), fridge, comfortable bed, shower with lots of pressure, a bath & Skyband Wifi. There is a battery backup for when the power is off. The breakfast is ample. The staff are very friendly and eager to help in any way they can. Home Up is situated in South End so is a little out of town but this has the advantage that it is a super quiet, safe and relaxed place. We had a car and could be at the clock tower (centre of town) in under ten minutes. There are taxis available and for those on a budget a minibus to the centre is about 150 MK. The lodge is a little difficult to find - the road to access it is opposite the police point and Total petrol station. We can't recommend Home Up highly enough. Thank you very much to Susan, Peter, Macleod and team. We hope to be back soon !!!

Stayed here for two nights. Big clean room with bathroom including toilet, shower and bathtub. Receptionist Susan was of great help. Very extensive breakfast. Internet by means of a scratch card, free use limited to 250 MB. Complex consists of various small buildings in one of which the router is located so signal strength is depending on room selection (had to go outside on the small veranda). The guesthouse is located a bit outside of Blantyre and not easy to find. Coming close take dirt road opposite to gas station and police office and follow signs to Lee’s lodge but continue keeping right. Airport shuttle is available at MK 18.000 and Susan can arrange for taxis to get around. Payment of lodging, transport etc is cash so be prepared.

We often come on business to Blantyre. Clearly the previous reviewer have not been to many place in Malawi to be so unimpressed. This is ideal stop over if you have to do shopping etc and do not feel like going out. Comfortable kitchen. Equipped with both power and gas for in case of power outages. Strong wifi signal and tv supplier. Also fitted with solar lights, which we luckily did not have to use. We came with our own car, but I did see public transport are within walking distance. Overall moder and neat. Will be back.
