Livingstonia is a beautiful place and worth the amazing road trip up to the plateau. For a Scot, the history of the place is also really powerful. The lodges are very comfortable, very affordable and the service form the staff was extremely helpful and friendly.
Room had two single beds and arm chairs plus shelves for clothing. Separate bathroom with toilet and shower. Plumbing needs to be looked at and despite various complaints problems persisted. Management needs a more effective maintenance programme. Greatveven amazing potential if better managed. Janet and Olivia were great cooks. Friendly, helpful and good food provided. Wonderful views over the lake in a safe and very friendly community.
I booked two nights accommodation via this establishments website and paid via PayPal, as you must do when you book online. I set off at 06:30 from my previous lodging and walked for 4.5 hours to get to Livingstonia. On arrival I was informed that they had no record of my booking or payment but that they had a chalet available for which I would have to pay. I showed them the confirmation email which I had received from Livingstonia Lodges (no individual named) and also the confirmation of the transaction which I had received from PayPal. At this point it became obvious that the person with whom I was dealing had no authority to act on his own initiative as he had to phone the absent Manager. On completing the call his communication was brief and to the point "the manager said no!" I explained that I had walked there with enough cash to buy food for the duration of my stay but that I did not have $60 for accommodation that had already been paid for and invited his suggestion as to what I was supposed to do. In reply I received a vacuous smile and a shrug of the shoulders. As a result of this exchange I felt that there was nothing to be gained by further intercourse with these people and so set off to walk back to my previous lodging. This involved a 3.5 hour walk in the heat of a sunny Malawian afternoon. I look forward with eager anticipation to a "Managment Response" to this post and should they fail to provide one you may judge for yourself the calibre of the people with whom you are dealing when transacting business with Livingstonia Lodges.…
The view was spectacular over looking Lake Malawi! We were a team of 12, we took over the 3 wooden chalets. The chalets were spartan and charming. Two bedrooms share a bath with a dressing room in between. Watch the stunning sun rise over the lake, then take a warm shower! The fires for the hot showers are lit @ 5:00am- so welcome! Delicious meals are included, the service was great, and the staff so accommodating! Perfect setting for a visit to Historic Livingstonia!
Трое из нас остановились здесь всего лишь за исключением одного месяца в 2014 года. Мы жили в четырех номерах спальни в в доме, один из самых исторических в Livingstonia. Персонал делал все возможное, чтобы мы чувствовали себя желанными. Мейбл и ее команда в кухне накормил нас так хорошо, кровати были удобными, с потрясающими видами. Новый wifi был дополнительным бонусом в летние отеле. Мы начали чувствовать себя как членам семьи и определенно рекомендуем!
