Africa House Malawi
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Very comfortable and spacious rooms, good food and a relaxed atmosphere. I'm not a great lover of the big brand hotels and much prefer something more homely and boutique = quirky. This place is great, spacious and airy public areas, good home cooking, pleasant staff and a very relaxed atmosphere. It's not lavish but it's really very good and you won't go wrong staying there.

Africa house is my favourite place to stay in Lilongwe and surroundings. That’s because of the homely atmosphere what’s all around. Rooms are very nice, the staff is very friendly en helpful. The lodge is beautifully decorated and invites you to sit in the garden, lounge or restaurant. From day one I felt very comfortable and met inspiring people. The lodge have very good facility’s, like multiple internet providers on WIFI and a backup generator (both not that stable systems in Malawi).
The standard is western orientated, the warmth of the people and atmosphere makes this place very special. Zikomo kwambiri!

Room Tip: I stayed in "Zanzibar" a well decoreated room.

I have seen Africa House developm over the last years. It was stylish, secure and spacious from day one. Now it has a pool and gym to add to one's comfort. Of course, wifi is available -and working fine! Meals are nice. Anything can be prepared upon request with just a little notice. So my place of choice when visiting Lilongwe!

The Africa House Hotel was by far the best place we stayed while on a two week trip to Malawi. My daughter was able to swim and exercise every morning. The room was large and tastefully furnished. Everything was first class and yes, there was tub with shower and hot water and having wi fi was heavenly. I would recommend Africa House to anyone going to Llongwa.

Stayed twice at the Africa House for business now. What a beautiful place with a perfection for details. Excellent value for money. Big plus is the gym and swimming pool.
I stayed in the suite and the guestroom and both have big comfortable beds. Suite is a small apartment with lots of space.
Big compliment to Angela and Edvai as they were so helpful with everything and went out of their way to help me to get my luggage sorted after it got lost at the airport.
Petty you were fully booked for my last night stay but I will definitely be back when in lilongwe.

Just because of the internet connection I decreased my rating to 4 star.
Pluses: Rooms
Minuses:The breakfast pickings were quite slim, the gym room floor was hard concrete and did not have the greatest variety of weights. The internet connection was poor in the rooms could only be accessed from the lobby and even then not always.
Overall if i was on a leisure trip I would love to visit again. But given the quality of the rooms despite the minuses I would still go again even for business. .

I stayed in Africa House in February 2014. The location is excellent, the garden spacious and lush, and the swimming pool small, but nice. The rooms are also nice, each one having a different "Africa" theme, like Zanzibar with its turquoise walls, and Egypt with is warm color palette.

Africa House is the perfect place to come to after a busy day at work, and I really enjoyed sitting outside to enjoy a good book in the silence. The garden also smelled really nice at the time, which added to my experience. It is located in a suburb of Lilongwe, but it is only about a 10 minutes cab ride away from Lilongwe city centre where the government and NGOs are located. The airport is also easy to get to and away from.

The management and staff at Africa house was very helpful. The manager, a dutch lady, always took time to answer my questions, and was always very smiling and pleasant. The staff also always went out of their way to tend to my requests.

All in all, I had a truly lovely stay in Africa House.
