The Sunbird in Blantyre is a very nice hotel. Room was comfortable, bathroom well appointed with soap - shampoo - body wash. Shower strong with plenty of hot water. Bottled water was provided in room. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. Gardens were beautiful, and pool looked great (but I did not swim). The free hotel provided...

I would like to have more of an opinion on the Mt. Soche, as much as I wish that the views from the garden reflected the coffees and food in the restaurant- they just don't. The setting in the garden is absolutely lovely- I used to go fairly frequently to sit and have a very average coffee (which usually comes...

This is a hotel with an old setting and needs a renovation to modern times. The location is good and convenient with restaurants and places nearby. A hotel which does not have its own sauna needs to review its policy.

From front desk to porters to housekeeping one receives warm, friendly and quick service. The room is very comfortable. Housekeeping standards are high. Access to and from the hotel is easy which makes it a perfect place to stay. The hotel offers a great restaurant and lovely garden for an afternoon coffee.

Rooms are crowded if you need to sit at your desk. Wifi is spotty. Air conditioning not great. And no place to sit in the lobby. Staff is friendly, location is okay, grounds are nice. Frustrated because I need to conduct business, and it's hard to do so here.
