Excellent Location

Excellent location to falls. Rooms very good, lovely colonial looking Hotel.

Breakfast excellent.

Absolutely no need to spend on more expensive Hotel. We went for high tea at Victoria Falls Hotel, which was good but I preferred the look of Ilala Lodge.

Discovered a great cafe called Wild horizon cafe. Looked over the Zambezi river and also the bridge linking Zimbabwe and Zambia. Ate dinner while the sunset.

Anything good cafe was the Three monkeys.

Very comfortable place to stay

Ilala Lodge was a very nice if not overly-colonial looking place, although perfectly nice and thus enjoyable for our stay at Victoria Falls.

We enjoyed the swimming pool and the room we had, also breakfast was abundant and tasty, but otherwise we spent lots of time in the Falls park and both nights ate outside of the hotel, at The Three Monkeys right next to the hotel.

That is a place we definitely recommend for excellent food, really affordable prices, great cocktails and superb staff service.

Very comfortable

Our room was attractive and comfortable, and we could see the "smoke" from the falls from our porch, and walk there in 15 minutes.

The food in the lodge's restaurant was very good, with local specialties like crocodile, warthog and kudu.

We were told there would be construction going on during our stay, and to make up for it, they offered a breakfast cruise on the Zambezie river. The construction turned out to be barely noticeable, and the cruise was wonderful - we saw two herds of elephants play in the river.

Nice hotel for our last night

We stopped at Ilala on our last night after 6 nights in Hwange National Park. It suited our needs perfectly. Close to town to purchase last minute souvenirs and to have a lovely meal at The Three Monkeys.

The ample and delicious breakfast set us up perfectly for our long haul flight home to the UK.
