I had the unfortunate opportunity to stay at Golden Peacock during a conference in Lilongwe.
The hotel was full at the time (the hotel management had shamelessly increased significantly its prices at a result: US$150)
I stayed in the new building and I have no complaint about the room: large, huge flat TV screen (although choices of international channels extremely limited), relatively clean.
Apart from the quite unaccommodating management, the two big problems for me with this hotel are: internet connection is either non functionning or very very bad (quite a problem when there for an international conference) and the food.
ooooh the food... where shall I start? I am sorry to say but it is certainly the most disgusting food I have had in a hotel for a very long time (and trust me, I have been to quite a few hotels in Africa and elsewhere)
Even the breakfast buffet is disgusting. The pastries are either tasteless or of very poor taste, the hot plates are really bad, fruits are old.
The lunch buffets were no better. Whether chinese food (and I do like Chinese food), Western food, or African dishes, it was absolutely disgusting.
The hotel management needs to hire decent cooks if they really want to succeed. The food in this place became a running joke among clients of the hotel.
All in all, a not so good experience. I am sorry but I will not return,
