With the entrance gate bell ringing with ever guest entering and re-entering (no access code or remote for guests), sleep was not on the cards as people came in even after 3 am and the the rooms are not sound proof at all - could even hear other phones receiving text.  We and other gusts could not enter as the entrance door key was left in the lock from the inside.  Toilet rim is in a very bad state, fridge is on but not working, wall plug not working, but lead supplied is held together my tape.  We were 2 guests and received one bath towel  and one face towel - had to ask for another!

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.

We fell in love with the guest house from the time we arrived. The neatness was excellent and the service was wonderful.We will certainly and absolutely recommend Ilala Guest house to people or friends. We are looking forward to our next visit.To the Ilala team, more power to your muscle!

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...
