Stayed here for a week in one of the newly renovated rooms. The room was lovely - very comfortable bed, spacious and nicely decorated. Food at the restaurant in the evenings was delicious - and I was especially pleased to see several vegetarian options. Breakfast was simple, but more than adequate and tasty.The lunch options however, were rather more pedestrian,...

The location's very good but I think that it's worth paying the extra to stay at the Sunbird Capital hotel. The hotel was in the process of being refurbished when I visited but I wasn't told this at the time of booking and loud construction work started I think just before 6am at the weekends. The swimming pool was also...

I've stayed here many times over the years. The hotel is average, but the location is great as you are within walking distance to many restaurants, banks, grocery stores, and more. There is an outdoor patio that serves as the restaurant. The food is good, but if you are staying there for a long period, you'll want to explore the...

Had a fairly pleasant stay here in Lilongwe. Staff were very pleasant but room needed a serious upgrade particularly in the bathroom. Water pressure wasn't consistent. Also had an issue where the phone line would just ring for no reason at all hours of the night so had to sleep with it off the hook. Otherwise good was good and...

I have just returned from spending 6 nights at this hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend the hotel. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and i didn't actually see one mosquito in my room over my entire stay. Soft pillows and added touches like freshly made biscuits helped the hotel feel homely. The staff were very...

Clean rooms with fairly good service by Malawi standards. Food ok and edible but not the greatest for the price charged. Great conference venues and decent catering options at fair price. Not a bad option at all

Hotel in process of renovation which will improve rating. That said rooms were clean & spacious-with balcony overlooking beautiful pool area. Meals good. Bothered me that could not get adaptor for plugs & was told to buy one across the road. Aside from that, hotel offers good wifi & can change currency which is helpful. Good venue for meetings through...

The Sunbird rooms are very clean and mosquito free- unlike the Crossroads Hotel where I had to spray my room every evening. The wifi worked great and food was good in the on site restaurant. The ambiance was great, with local musicians serenading the lunch and dinner crowds on select days.

Already stayed at Sunbird Lilongwe a few times. Always get out with the same opinion. The rooms are clean and equipped... Though they need a bit renewing. Management is always helpful and will try to sort out your request... From a place to work at night, to offhand requests for the kitchen.
