Ilala lodge

Nice restaurant and this is a good, reliable place to stay. Good restaurant and service.

The pool area is not particularly nice though and you don't really have views of the Falls. Anyone would be much better off staying at Victoria Falls Hotel, which has much nicer architecture and better views.

Ilala Lodge review

The lodge itself is lovely together with the staff. After eating in Cape Town, it was more expensive however the food was still good.

The only downside was the building works going on, They are building 22 more rooms, finishing in October 2015 and the builders started at 8am and finished at 530pm. A quiet day by the pool wasn't so quiet with banging and crashing.

Beautiful, relaxing and comfortable.

What a way to return to civilization!! Fantastic on all accounts.

Comfortable rooms, kind staff, great amenities, good food & beautiful surroundings. I had a relaxing message, a nice swim, a great dinner and appreciated the locale for walking to Victoria Falls and exploring the rest of the town.

A definite redo.

Ilala Lodge review

Our stay at Ilala Lodge was wonderful. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were comfortable and the location was great. It was only a 10-15 minute walk to Victoria Falls.

Seeing the warthogs every day from our room made for a fun, exciting stay. We ate at the Palm Restaurant one evening and really enjoyed the food. The only slight annoyance was dealing with the vendors who came up to us every time we left the lodge, asking us to buy their "one-of-a-kind" goods.

The best hotel I have ever stayed in!

A small intimate hotel with personable, friendly staff; excellent food and a to die for location.

The rooms were very well equipped, with a first rate shower. Outside of the hotel you are constantly bothered by people trying to sell you stuff, so you need to be polite and firm, although we used it as a good excuse to stay more in the hotel!

Ilala Lodge review

Lovely hotel and a fitting end to our holiday. We arrivied at about lunch time and after settling in had a light snack . In the afternoon we went on the sundowner which was fantastic lots of animals and birds and drinks and snacks! Our room was on the first floor with doors opening onto a terrace. from where we could see and hear the roar and see the spray of the falls.

Pool area nice and clean. Staff very attentive. Evening meal very good. Next day walked to the falls. No trouble there. Would happily stay again. It is pricey and everything is in american dollars but a lovely lovely hotel.
