The Sunbird Capital hotel was a comfortable stay with a large sized bedroom with good internet connection. The Buffet lunch was good. Breakfast was okay. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.

This is a good hotel to stay at if you are there for a short visit. The buffet is also OK and does not have a lot of variety. The rooms are pretty standard. The one good thing at the hotel is the reception staff. You need to eat at Vincent's if you are at the hotel as the food...

This is one of those occasions when a once great hotel simply neglects to upgrade and properly maintain. It is a large hotel that accommodates many conferences. The rooms are clean and comfortable however the restaurant staff really let the hotel down. The service is very slow. I ordered a curry which I was told would take 20 minutes to...

I haven't had good experiences with hotels in Lilongwe, so I didn't have high expectations . I did my bookings online, and directly with the hotel and they were swift and efficient. The room was pleasantly cosy, with a good shower, shower power, several cable TV stations and clean. I liked the work desk area. Very appropriate when working from...

I'm actually at the Sunbird Capital right now - there is a live band playing in the garden right behind my room, been going for about 3 hours and apparently two to go, it sounds like it's in the room with me, the lead "singer" spends most of her time shouting to the audience - Reception don't care.

Had a very comfortable weekend here while attending a workshop. I checked in at the business executive suite located upstairs so no waiting in the main foyer. The room was comfortable with free wifi and a workstation. The business suite provides a continental breakfast (hot breakfasts in tge hotel restaurant) and free snacks between 6 and 7pm.

We stayed a night earlier this month and were very pleasantly surprised at the facilities and service this hotel provides in what must be very challenging circumstances. Yes it is somewhat pricey but it cannot be easy to provide a service that's close enough to 1st-world standards, in Lilongwe. The staff at the front desk, reception and house-keeping were without...

A great place to stay. The rooms, facilities and service are like those you'd find in good hotel chains in Europe. The staff are very friendly, a wide variety of food is served throughout the day, and the rooms are large and kept very clean.

No complaints. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel provides additional services, esp. with relations to guests wishing to make bookings at other Sunbird properties across the country. This was quite helpful due to some sudden changes in plan. Hotel is a bit dated but otherwise relatively well maintained.
