The Ilala Guesthouse, certainly did not live up to expectation or the reviews we found on the establishment. We arrived on Friday, only to be told there was a problem with the booking. Eventually we were given rooms, which looked as if someone stays there, in other words with tenants. The toilet was filthy had to scrub it on our own.No remote for the gate, had to constantly ask for the gate to be open when we had to go out.DISAPPOINTING

Wow, wow, wow! Ilala is the best place I ever enjoyed. My wife was speechless and we are also planning to come back for a week - 5 to 6 days where we come specifically for enjoyment without anyone having to wake up early for work like I had to. The place is 5 Star.

iLala is a beautiful guesthouse with morden decor, safe and secure, however their service was terrible! The lady in charge was not friendly at all and she was no where to be found most of the time. They gave us a stinking dirty blanket and after struggling to find her she looked at me like I was crazy when I complained about the dirty blanket. The parking was also very awkward and she didnt want us to park else where and there was space. Even when we left she was busy on her cellphone and didnt even ask us how was the stay or even a simple Thank you! I would honestly not recommend anyone to...
