“Great for business / long-term stays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

I stayed at Africa House while on business for a period of five months. For business travellers seeking to avoid the hassle of renting, hiring staff, procuring a generator, etc, Africa House is a fantastic option. The rooms are well appointed, clean, and spacious. Staff is very hospitable. Surroundings are idyllic.

Round the clock wifi is superb, with AC and backup electricity to boot. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Lilongwe.

Room Tip: The suites are terrific

Africa House is a beautiful place in Lilongwe. The quiet setting and spacious structure combined with the big smiles from staff make for a warm atmosphere and a wonderful relaxing stay. The decor is lovely and the garden full of exotic birds. I would definitely come back!

In a peaceful garden setting, Africa House provides affordable, comfortable accommodation in Lilongwe. Set slightly out of town, I really appreciated the peace and quiet. I also appreciated the attention to detail - beautifully decorated spotlessly clean rooms, good linen and towels, scented candles and nice amenities in the bathroom. The food was good and the staff were very pleasant. I would not hesitate to recommend this place.

I stayed here for a month in 2011 and found Africa House was a very pleasant home from home during my time in Lilognwe. The rooms were well serviced and effective air conditioning and had Wifi which was a god-send.

The food was of top order, and you can always request your favourite for breakfast (try their banana pancakes) or ask for the something lighter in the evening for dinner.

I´ve travelled through a big part of Southern and Eastern Africa, but this is really the best place I´ve been! Lovely decorated rooms, amazing staff and great food. The recently finished swimming pool is beautiful. If you´re looking for a nice place to stay in Malawi, you should definitely go to Africa House

Stayed in the lodge November 2011. I have never been in a lodge with such perfections for details. Rooms are so well decorated. Staff very friendly. The building the lodge is situated in is not just a house but a purposly constructed building for a lodge. Huge lounge and relaxing area. Beautiful gardens. When in Lilongwe I will definitly be back.
