I stayed in Africa House in February 2014. The location is excellent, the garden spacious and lush, and the swimming pool small, but nice. The rooms are also nice, each one having a different "Africa" theme, like Zanzibar with its turquoise walls, and Egypt with is warm color palette. Africa House is the perfect place to come to after a... More

I was in Lilongwe for work and stayed for 10 days at this lodge. I definitely did not regret my decision to stay at Africa House, which a friend recommended to me. It was within reasonable distance from government and the embassies (between 5 and 10 minutes by cab and from there you'll get around easily) and was moreover a... More

Lodging was good. The dinner was fairly mediocre. Internet was absolutely terrible when it was working. They should have multiple internet options available for example - Skyband and Globe available. This makes this a really poor option for business travelers.

I've been traveling to Malawi for work for about 3 years and love staying at Africa House. It's beautiful and cozy, the staff are wonderful and make you feel at home, and the gardens are lovely -- it's always so relaxing to stay here. Downsides are internet isn't always available throughout the lodge, and the food selection is quite limited.... More

I wish I could write two reviews for Africa house: a five-star review for vacation/holiday and a three-star review for business travelers. The property has hotel-like rooms with large friendly common areas that are great for lounging, reading, and impromptu social gatherings. The friendly atmosphere is conducive to making new social acquaintances. The food is good, but it's a guest-house... More

Africa House is the perfect guest house. The building itself is beautiful, spacious and well designed. The rooms are large and comfortable with good facilities. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful and the staff are warm, friendly and attentive. In comparison with other Lilongwe hotels and guests houses, Africa House has the nicest atmosphere - I think this is mostly... More

I can't believe I didn't know about this place earlier. It's clean, it's gorgeous, it's comfortable. It's also in a quiet, residential neighborhood but not too far from town, nor the airport. It has a very beautiful ambiance and decor. It has a very competitive price, esp. when considering that internet is included. Rooms are clean. The restaurant makes great... More

Very lovely hotel with a great staff and beautiful ambiance. Breakfast is lovely. And the rooms are each themed as a different African country. I would definitely recommend this place anyone looking for a quiet place to work or relax.

Fabulous guesthouse, reluctant to write a review just in case there is no room for me next time I visit Lilongwe! Lovely rooms, food was great, a little gym with all new equipment, pool and garden... all for a very reasonable price when comparing with hotels in Lilongwe. Friendly staff, personal touch, and wifi.

For me, Africa House is great and I stayed there some 15 days (21 July-04 August) while working in Malawi and it was my second visit too as I had stayed there some 7 days in June. It has good meals (but limited choices, which I personally like--no fussing about what to eat and the food comes to the table... More
