It was aswsome. Besides the lights going off it was amazing. The probem we had was the bed. I asked for a queen size bed cause my husband is tall. They had 2 single beds put together. That was so uncomfortable. We never slept at all. The service was great. The lady did exactly what I asked for. But going to work tired the next day was awful. So please do something about your beds. Thank you for an ok stay at Ilawu hotel.

Very decent accommodation at a reasonable price. Perfect location for a weekend and the Amashova race. Quite noisy at night but otherwise great service and pleasant stay.

Very disappointed with the way this hotel turned out. It's very noisy. There's NO wi-fi access and no bar.

A couple of friends and I found the Ilawu Boutique Hotel randomly on the internet, but it turned out great. Clean and efficient. They even made breakfast for us much earlier at 5am to accommodate us before we took on the Amashova Cycling Race.
