I would stay here again.
I stayed 2 nights at the Sunbird Lilongwe while on a business trip recently. I found the property to be well-taken care of, the staff friendly, and the few meals (2 breakfasts and one dinner) I had in the restaurant were fine, with a number of choices available. I did not go out in the area around the hotel, so I cannot comment on the neighbourhood.

Reliable Business Option
This was the third time I have stayed with Sunbird Lilongwe and it is nothing if not consistent. There services are reliable, rooms are always clean and staff is very friendly. The restaurant has good meal option and the skyband internet works well in all rooms I have stayed in. It's not the nicest hotel you will find it Southern Africa or the cheapest, but definitely a top establishment in Lilongwe. They have a small pool and a small local gym with free weights next door which you can access. Skyband internet requires you have an access card, so they give you a 100 mb card when you check in. What they don't tell you is that you can get a free card for every day you stay, so remember to go ask for this each morning at 100 mb will not last very long.

My stay was nothing to write home about. The hotel itself is quite dated, but none the less clean and quite. The room is quite large and comfortable, but the water pressure and heat in the shower was not good. I found the reception team to be a little unfriendly. The resturant was pleasant, service was excellent, food average, however limited choices and quite expensive.

The Hotel needs a renovation urgently, especially the entrance, the fountain etc is outdated. The restaurant needs to be REVAMPED. The appliance of the hotel looks very tired and old. it needs tobe upgraded like the capital or Mt Souche.
