Between December 2006 and December 2007 I stayed 150 nights (over 9 visits) in the Sunbird Capital whilst on business in Lilongwe.
Yes, it's true that the hotel is "tired" and in need of renovation and yes it's true that there were cockroaches - show me a hotel in Africa that doesn't have them. At least the ones at Sunbird were little ones and were regularly treated.
The staff were great - really great, all you have to do is treat them like normal people. Over my 150 nights I saw a lot of extremely rude guests.
The rooms were comfortable, the gardens well kept, the pool clean, they serve the best breakfast in Malawi and most important the beer was cold.
By far the best place in LilongweMore
