Review of Ku Chawe Inn

Valerie Clifford

Rooms clean and bright and well appointed - but the hotel is clearly government run and staff accordingly not very engaged. Food was buffet style and a bit disappointing

Review of Ku Chawe Inn

Bernard Touraine & Jocelyne Vade

  Zomba aera is quite interessing place, and the mountain offers lot of good quiet treks...   Rooms of the Sunbird Hotel in Ku Chawe are spacious with large landscape, but the food   is not a the right level... (We experienced (but not only) a poor and sad buffet for a dinner...)
