I would have liked to give a higher score because I did like the place, but being objective, it really needs updating. The grounds are lovely and the honesty bar system is great, although more stock needed. Only 1 bottle of white wine in the fridge and no tonic. We had an evening meal which was lovely, but $20 pp...

We stayed there one night. Room was comfortable and clean. Dinner was available. Breakfast was included which consisted of yogurt, fruit, juice, coffee, assorted cheeses and cold meats, toast and cereal. There was a bar for drinks. Nice lounging area as well as an outdoor area. No pool. I thought $120 was a little high for this place.

Burley house is a lovely place in suburban Lilongwe, great food, lovely friendly staff, a nice garden and the feeling that you are a guest in someone's home rather than in an impersonal hotel. The staff can order you taxis if you need to get somewhere, go out for dinner etc - very reasonable cost for the taxi.

Burley House is very comfortable and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The food is pretty good as well, although the advertised "continental breakfast" is wanting. As with many places in Lilongwe, Burley House is on the expensive side, but no more expensive than many other establishments. There is need for some repair work as well as some painting... More

Location: very isolated and difficult to get anywhere unless you have a car. The staff weren't particularly helpful in advising whether there was a taxi service available. Some lively bars nearby, mostly ex-pats. Room: basic appearance but a very comfortable bed, high quality mosquito net, very effective air-conditioning, very modern and luxurious shower, working TV but unfortunately no facilities to...

Only spent one night here before departing Malawi. Secure, gated house in quiet, upper-end residential area. Staff all pleasant and accommodating. Although it caters to business clientele, our adult family of 4 felt 'at home.' House showing signs of age, but not enough to distract from the charm. Beautifully maintained grounds. We were so grateful to have air-conditioning! Would stay... More

The place is very good. I was very impressed with the well manicured lawns and the rooms are quite neat. The staff were very friendly and the lounge made me feel like I was at home so I was able to relax and accomplish my work deadlines without disturbances. The only blight to this homely place is the expensive meals... More

Burley House is a nice, small hotel, with comfortable spacious and well arranged rooms (few rooms are somewhat smaller though) - and a cozy common area with a self-service bar. The atmosphere is homely, staff very friendly; breakfast and (optional) dinners are served around one large common table, allowing you to interact with the other guests. It has a nice... More

Just one night here but thoroughly enjoyed it. It's slightly tired but very comfortable, plenty of seating in the public areas, good food served at a communal dining table makes for a more interesting evening than being on your own. Breakfast is good, served plated to order. Comfortable beds and free wifi that irks well. If you like a friendly... More
