I was at Korea Garden Lodge at least five times in my life and really liked it. But things are not good anymore. Service at the reception is unbelievably bad - reservations cannot be found, besides the fact that you have the proof printed out and you phoned the day before. At 10 o'clock people just don't want to be... More

We stayed at this lodge for one night- after a very long day travelling from Ireland to Malawi, via 3 planes and 2 taxis!!! So we were after a bed for the night, somewhere we could shower and somewhere to eat- We had all the above provided for us here- plus very friendly and attentive staff- The room may have... More

We have spent several nights coming through Lilongwe and got to know the friendly staff quite well. Good rooms in Gold and Executive...comfortable, mosquito nets, showers, TV. great beakfast. A short walk from the town but quiet enough for a good night sleep. A secure compound. Loved the swimming pool and gardens.

Basic rooms are to be avoided. Higher spec rooms. Gold and above are very good. Suites are excellent. A good place to stay in Lilongwe. Central and secure. Restaurant is reasonably good and staff helpful/

The hotel was good enough for what we had to do: Sleep one night in Lilongwe on our overland trip from Zambia through Malawi and on to Tanzania. I booked a silver room. Not paid up front. We wanted relatively cheap accommodation (but still with some comfort), to compensate for the otherwise more special lodges that we had stayed in.... More

This place may look good on the website, but its incredibly dirty! I went for the bronze room option because I was on a budget….WELL! I should have just stayed on the street, reckon it would've been cleaner. The room got no light, the beige walls were by now a shade of grey and near the roof and corners black... More

We have stayed at Korea Garden numerous times and it is always a good experience...a secure location near old town, good food and service in the restaurant. The gardens and pool beside the outdoor eating area very attractive. Nice breakfast buffet . Executive rooms very comfortable and clean and affordable.

I stayed here twice during my 3 month stay in Malawi. Both times I stayed in Bronze rooms, which are basic rooms with shared bathrooms. They were small, but clean and exactly what you would expect for the price, about $15. The price included a great buffet breakfast. I used the restaurant area to sit and use the free wifi.... More

I booked this place for a friend of mine. Payment was made in full by the agent. The agent sent proof of payment to this place on many occasions. I followed up regularly with Stanley and Linda. They supposedly had not received their funds. This had nothing to do with me. They should have followed up with the agent. Bottom... More
