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.

The staff were the best part about my stay in the Hotel Sunbird Lilongwe. The accommodation was a bit dated, but clean and well kept. The menu in the restaurant could be expanded slightly for vegetarians and the time between ordering and food landing on the table was worryingly long. I can't compare to other hotels in Lilongwe but I...
