The Sunbird Mzuzu may be the best place in town, and is perfectly adequate for a place to sleep and then eat breakfast. Most importantly: the rooms are clean: the floors, the sheets, the bathroom, all clean. They're also worn and dingy and smell vaguely dusty (or something). The lights are dim and the A/C anemic at best. But it's...

Onsite is a casino, Choma bar, shop, hair salon, internet centre and conference centre. The breakfast is of a very acceptable standard and offers a wide range of juices, fruit, cereal,...

This hotel is comfortable and clean. The aircon works, our bathroom and bedroom was well appointed and the bed extremely comfortable. There was a fridge, tea and coffee making tray and complimentary bottle of water replenished every day. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and served a range of European and local dishes. Staff were friendly, helpful and well trained....

There is nothing remarkable about the Sunbird Mzuzu but nothing bad about it either. Very basic, clean rooms with a kettle in the room. Room had flatscreen tv with about 4 channels and there was free wifi in the room. Overall, a pleasant stay and if traveling in the area would consider staying there again. Although, a bit overpriced for...

The hotel has nearby a nine hole golf course and perhaps it's only plus. Has a lousy Friday night bar with breakfast the only item I enjoyed. But it happens to be the best fully fledged hotel in mzuzu and below 3 star. A must if you visit Mzuzu.

Our room was fine. It was comfortable, clean and provided a good night's sleep. We found the staff to be mainly pleasant and friendly. The bars, however, were a slightly different story as noise seemed to be the order of the day. In the main bar, three televisions each showed different channels with competing sound levels - football, music and...

I send 4 days in this hotel and was pleasantlty surprised. From the onset it's clear that this is not a new hotel, with big, high and dark brown front counters with the reception staff "hidding" behind these counters. The old decorations hanging from the walls tells a same story, this place was not build last year! Even in the...

The rooms were very clean, pretty normal size. I felt safe as the hotel is in a gated area. Food was average, steak very tough! I ordered medium well and it was still pretty red inside so I didn't eat half of it. The waiting time for the food is also pretty long. 45 mins to an hour, but typical...
