Clean beddings every day was refreshing! Staff are friendly, polite and always ready to help. Food is second to none, room was comfortable and always cleaned, fresh water every morning. The grounds are beautiful, serene garden, chilled pool, courtyard ambience great! The only thing I could fault was staff chit chat at late breakfast hours, was quite distracting and they shouldn't chit chat like that, it's unprofessional, but breakfast peak periods, there was no noise. All in all, Ryalls is always a great experience. Will most definitely book again next visit to Malawi.
