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.
