We had a quiet garden lunch here. Love the well-trimmed garden and trees which made us momentarily forgot that we are in Africa. It felt more like a European garden! We didn't stay in the rooms as it was just a lunch venue, but while passing through the living area I thought I am in a friend's cosy home, welcoming... More

Burley House is situated in a better part of Lilongwe, Malawi. It is very safe, has a nice atmosphere and a colonial touch. The room´s are nice, big and clean and you can order dinner. If you have dinner you meet other guests for a chat around the table.

I've never really understood before when people have said that a hotel feels like home, but I do since staying at Burley House. Our room was large, well furnished and comfortable with loads of natural light and an all important digital safe. The living areas were airy, comfortable and perfect for socialising with the small number of other guests. The... More

We stayed for one night and enjoyed the hospitality and peaceful surroundings. The bedroom was spacious,comfortable and had everything needed for our stay. We took full advantage of the backyard and all the facilities. The price was reasonable and the staff always helpful. The house manager, Pete, was particularly helpful. When we are back in Lilongwe we will stay there... More

We ended our trip to Malawi with an overnight stay at Burley House in Lilongwe. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The backyard garden is lovely - I had a vase of rosebuds on the desk in my room. We were greeted with a friendly smile and briefed about dinner. We are a family of 5 so... More

We stayed here for one night when our original choice was full. It was very quiet and clean with excellent internet availability. The garden was tranquil and the staff were attentive. For the price, this is a very attractive option.

We were lucky to get the room that has been recently re-furbished. Excellent meals, service, and friendly staff. Enjoyed having G&T's in the courtyard. The property is walled, and gated with a security guard. Certainly gave us a secure feeling.

A friendly place to stay, which is a little like home form home, with a large lounge where one can relax, help yourself to bar drinks and snacks (and record it on the tab). The food is very good, and served at one table because there are so few rooms, which encourages interaction between the guests, rqather than sitting at... More
