Dear Maritjie & Illyria House I would like to say a special thank you for all your effort and work that you and the Illyria house team put in to make our wedding day a most memorable and spectacular day. Everything from the décor to the food to our room was just perfect just as we imagined our wedding day... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Illyria House again this past week and was again blown away by this amazing place. The antiques here are amazing and I again was in wonder of the things I did not notice on previous visits, and I'm pretty sure I will be for many more visits. From the amazing staff that makes...

We visited Illyria House on Sunday for breakfast. Having frequented this establishment 4 times prior to this, I was sure that my partner would be blown away by the opulence and service of Illyria. I couldn't have been more wrong. It started when I telephoned Illyria to reserve our table for breakfast. Not only were they rude on the phone... More

A more delightful place to stay I cannot recall. I felt like a guest in a friend's beautiful house - the surroundings are serene and lovely, the food is terrific, and the hostess and staff are gracious and attentive. You will be pleasantly surprised often.

My husband and I recently "experienced" two nights at the unique Illyria House in celebration of our 40th anniversary. We were really grateful to have been upgraded to the beautiful Catherine Suite as they were not full...it was the pics of this room that had sparked my interest in visiting this grande home of yesteryear! I hadn't realized when I... More

We visited last week. Had the most wonderful dinner! Everything was out of this world! I will definitely visit again. Service was impeccable & the setting is just incredible. Did not know there was such an oasis of calm & beauty hidden in Pretoria.

We recently hosted a High Tea for approximately 70 guests at Illyria House - a hidden gem located in Muckleneuk Ridge, Pretoria. The central location was much appreciated by our guests as it was easily accessible from all areas in Pretoria, being so close to all the main roads. Throughout the process to arrannge our function, we received personal assistance... More

My wife and I read some of the reviews on Tripadvisor of other guests staying over at this establishment, and wondered if perhaps we stayed at a different place !! We arrived, via a dodgy part of Pretoria central, only to find an address with no welcome or reception, or anyone to be honest. What irks me is that they... More

My partner and I recently got married at Illaria House and what an experience!! Illaria house arranged everything perfectly as we are from Australia so it all was done via e-mail. The reception area was intimately arranged as requested and lunch was an absolute delight. Will be back for our anniversary.

My husband and I have travelled all over the world and have stayed in many hotels, but we both agree that Illyria House offers the best service by far. We felt spoilt and special because Foster, Richard and the others made our stay so welcoming. We will absolutely, positively, return to Illyria house when we are in Pretoria. Highly recommended!
