This is one of the oldest hotels in Lilongwe, I've heard, but not in a bad way. It is a large maze. The food at the restaurant is surprisingly good and your room includes a full breakfast buffet everyday which is very good. There is a gym, a small hexagonal pool, a business center for printing, and many conference/meeting rooms....

Very expensive ($272) for the standard of hotel and service. On checkin they couldn't find my Booking.Com booking, had a problem with the AC in the first room and was upgraded to executive room and floor. Executive club room not to the same standard of Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc. Dinner buffet was acceptable but again pricing. Staff are very friendly...

The Sunbird Capital's restaurant seems to specialize in having a significant proportion of its menu unavailable at any one time. The waiting staff are not only utterly ignorant of the menu they have but also take some 5-10 minutes to come back and say that what you have chosen cannot be provided. The waitress seemed to find it amusing that...

I stayed there in September and the wifi kept cutting out for hours at a time. They told me they were working to fix it. I stayed there again in November and the wifi was even worse, sometimes cutting out for almost 24 hours. Once again, they told me they were working on fixing their system. Sorry, I can't stay...

Well, that's their motto anyway. Stayed in both Capital (Lilongwe) and Mount Soche (Blantyre) Sunbird hotels. The service levels are OK, although prices still a bit high for the service level. - Rooms in Capital are better and more modern. - The restaurant in Mount Soche was better, with a far larger selection on the menu. That is, until I...

A nice and quite calm hotel not too far from the airport, about 30 minutes drive. Room was okay, bathroom could be upgraded. A bit expensive. Good food at the hotel grill and very friendly and helpful staff.

Very clean room and excellent quality amenities, typical of a Sunbird Hotel. Helpful staff. My room was right next to reception and entrance. It was quiet in the afternoons, evenings and nights for relaxing and working. However, early morning to mid-day, staff were very noisy at the reception and in the corridors. There was a lot of loud chit-chat and...

A nice place in the Heart of Capital City. Easy to reach, close to Presidential Way. Luxurious hotel, beautiful gardens and a very good restaurant. I had a buffet, and really it offered different plates for an accessible price. Good quality and friendly service. I definitely go back their.

The hotel staff are very friendly and service is quick if not instant! Breakfast had a wide choice of food and they cleared used plates very quick. The rooms are super clean as well as the swimming pool. The food over lunch was well cooked and there was a buffet with a wide choice of food. Good job sunbird!

The staff at this hotel could not be more helpful or more friendly - seriously amazing staff - and across the board from the Front Desk/Reception to the Restaurant to housekeeping. The food is good and they have a decent wine list. There's a nightly buffet, but an ala carte menu as well. You can also just get the salad...
