Review of Ilala Lodge Hotel

Mike Ashworth

Very comfortable hotel with an excellent location for the falls (easy walking distance). Restaurant and Bar staff very friendly and provided excellent service. Activities office staff very helpful and overall facilities in the hotel good. However the fact that some building / maintenance work ongoing whilst we were there was slightly disappointing.
