6/10 Good

The property is an old home in the middle of a better part of Lilongwe. It’s much better than most places there. It’s in a relatively safe neighborhood. As long as you don’t have an “American hotel” expectation you’ll survive. Hotel is peaceful and quaint. Staff is nice. WiFi will drive you nuts though.

4/10 Fair

I was expecting more from this hotel based on the website. However, the hotel was basic. While it was clean the condition of the rooms were poor. Breakfast was poor. At the moment Malawi has numerous power cuts. When we arrived the hotel had a blackout, their generator was broken so there was no back up power. One of the bedrooms in the apartment was crowded with furniture. The double bed took up most of the room up to the door so you crawl into the bed from the living room. There was an unnecessary desk and swivel chair in the room. It would have been better with a single bed rather than a double bed. We arrived at 6pm. The cook was not on the premises when we arrived and would be phoned to come in to cook a meal if we wanted dinner.

Food issues
Arrived to late to go out so ate in the lodge. Food was terrible and expensive. They were also unable to provide any bottle water to buy but they did accommodate my early check out by giving me an early breakfast.

Nice quiet hotel
It's a nice and quiet hotel... since the city center of Lilongwe is not concentrated but scattered, this hotel is not close to anything...

Lovely gardens. Book a garden room.
We stayed 2 nights as part of our 2 week holiday in Malawi. It was a good base from which to explore the northern part of the capital - so different from the old town area where we were based for the first part of our holiday. The good things were: lovely gardens, helpful staff, feeling of safety and security, good cooked breakfast, walkable to the parliament, the Banda mausoleum and the splendid Four Seasons cafe/restaurant. We had a room on the main lodge which was spacious. The worst things were: tatty decor in our bedroom (brolen tiles, broken lampshade, stained ceiling tiles, dirty electric sockets). We had a look in the newer garden block and these were much better, cleaner, fresher and with a terrace front and back. If I were booking again, I'd definitely want a garden room. The price is very reasonable. One more thing: The site says there is an outdoor pool. There is no pool . . y

Annie's Lodge Malawi
Annie's Lodge has a homely feel about it. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

2/10 Poor

We had a lot of money stolen out of our room as there was no safe available. Management of the hotel were extremely unhelpful in the matter and said there was nothing they could do to help us. They didn't care that this had happened to us. We would certainly NOT recommend this place to anyone and they are a chain of hotels throughout the country. DO NOT use this place.

A bit far from things but good service
Cozy guesthouse with good service and decent food. Not particularly close to anything except one cafe, but that is probably standard for Lilongwe. A/C didn't work and it was lacking some amenities (like shampoo!) but overall it was a decent deal for the money.
