We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights after 2 weeks trip in South Africa from Cape Town to Kruger Park. It turned out to be the perfect place to enjoy the great Victoria Falls, to experience some local activities and to have a relaxation beside the pool after a long RSA journey. Upon cheking-in we got a complimentary upgrading from standard room on the ground floor to deluxe suite on the second floor which had a high chalet-tipe wooden roof, two air-cons and a large balcony. It was a pleasant surprise to find a set of insect repellents in the room because Vic Falls is a malaria area. The restaurant is large with indoor/outdoor areas, the breakfast is very copious and the dinner is not very expensive taking into account lacking of restaurants in the city which is very small. The city center and railway station is just outside the hotel, the Falls is 10-15 min. walk through the bush. When having activities (lions walk, helicopter flight, Zambezi river cruise) we were picked up/dropped of from the hotel reception which was very comfortable cause the weather was very hot. The hotel staff was very attentive and friendly. Also they have a cosy shop with crocodile/buffalo leather-made goods.
Overall the Ilala Lodge is a perfect place to stay and I would highly recommend it to any visitor of Victoria Falls.
