I cannot imagine why anyone visiting Lilongwe would want to stay any place other than the Latitude 13. I recently stayed there twice, once in a junior suite and once in a guest suite. Both were funky and had unusual designs, such as a sunken bathtub in the guest suite and two floors in the junior suite. The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. The hotel includes a restaurant with superior food. The breakfast buffets are excellent. The menu for other meals is varied, including several vegetarian choices as well as at least a dozen pizzas. Do NOT miss the chocolate cake for dessert or the opportunity to eat outside close or next to the swimming pool. My only recommendation would be to increase the lighting above the bathroom sinks to make it easier to see while shaving.

We went here for dinner. The food was very nice, would suit western standards. Friendly staff and very clean and tidy. The only thing to mention was that when looking through the guest book there were quite a few comments about the management having poor customer service. Maybe this is due to the clientele they attract being one of the most expensive hotels to stay in Lilongwe. We did not experience this ourselves. We would defiantly come back for food and maybe even to stay. Zikoma

Having stayed at other premium hotels in Lilongwe, this one is the best. Beautiful location/grounds, nice pool, artistically styled room and structures, great service (sometimes the staff is shy or busy, so you have to let them know what you need), delicious cuisine by a very professional chef and his team, comfortable beds, and clean safe surroundings. You are treated like family. WiFi is good. Weight room/gym was a bonus. We had a challenge with water pressure one day, but it was quickly addressed by the management. I will definitely return.

Would not recommend taking you business guests or even yourself for a meal. Had a group of 11 international guests go for a business dinner only to wait over 2hrs for the meals. The waiter forgot orders. There was a group that came over an hour after us but managed to have their drinks, food and dessert before we had a mains. It was strange because the only patrons that seemed to be getting any decent service were white. It’s hard not to question mark.
