Returned for business.
All good. The outdoor dining area downstairs makes for a good working and dining environment.

Great choice. Excellent value for money.
Service was excellent. The initial greeting and the attitude of the head concierge was one of the best I had experience. His service and good humour alone is good reason to return to this hotel. The hotel is excellent value for money and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Lilongwe.

Quiet and good sleep time
4 nights business trip, hotel very close to the office, quiet sleep and good bed and pilllows. No so much activity in the area if you are looking to often go out but if it is a place to rest after a day of work, it is a good choice.

Expensive for what you get
I frequently travel to Malawi for business. This was the first time I have stayed at the Sunbird Capital. The rooms are tired and the location requires you to take a taxi for any shopping. The pool is nice and the restaurant food was a cut above many other hotels.
