Was not happy with the guy at reception he was not friendly and not welcoming at all, had no smile on his face did not even have time to attend to our queries, it was a hot the aircon in our room was not working, we couldn't enjoy our sleep due to the heat. the remote for TV was not working either. The only thing I liked was breakfast and the service received during breakfast was perfect

I always use Ilawu whenever I'm in PMB, but this time I was a little disappointed. Check in after 16:00, the floors are still moped, I had to ask for another room because the room that was initially allocated to me was not clean.

I really enjoyed my stay, the receptionist was helpful and friendly, food was good,the room was comfortable I can't complain, the only thing I think they should add on the room is a refrigerator and a microwave.

I had such a lovely time during my stay at Ilawu Inn. The staff is very cordial and helpful. Their breakfast is amazing although it would be lovely to have a bit of variety. Overall great service. I’d highly suggest they have their hotel handbook with their reception numbers etc in the rooms for convenient communication.

There were no remote controls for TV and aircon. There was also no towel. Dinning hall service during breakfast was so terrible. There were literally no waiters. We had to literally ask for anything and wait for ages.
