Reviewed 26 January 2017

The Sunbird rooms are very clean and mosquito free- unlike the Crossroads Hotel where I had to spray my room every evening. The wifi worked great and food was good in the on site restaurant. The ambiance was great, with local musicians serenading the lunch and dinner crowds on select days.

Already stayed at Sunbird Lilongwe a few times. Always get out with the same opinion. The rooms are clean and equipped... Though they need a bit renewing. Management is always helpful and will try to sort out your request... From a place to work at night, to offhand requests for the kitchen.

The staff were the best part about my stay in the Hotel Sunbird Lilongwe. The accommodation was a bit dated, but clean and well kept. The menu in the restaurant could be expanded slightly for vegetarians and the time between ordering and food landing on the table was worryingly long. I can't compare to other hotels in Lilongwe but I...

Spent three nights. Location is good. Foods were awesome. Staffs were warm and friendly. Needs improvement in bathroom and rooms, specially when it comes to maintaining room temperature and hot water. Real irritating was its internet service, you need to wait for hours to get a speed but then it feds away immediately.
