We got married yesterday and my wife and I spent our wedding night at Illyria House. They understand hospitality. Everything was done to such a high standard, that is was frankly perfect. We were welcomed in the middle of the night after the wedding reception, they carried our luggage to the suite and parked our car in a safe place.... More

Did a photoshoot for my daughter's ball at this lovely venue. Staff were fabulous and venue awesome! There were so many unique places throughout this huge property. Well worth a visit. The gardens are quiet and tranquil. Without a doubt this is a hidden gem in Pretoria.

The staff attention makes the difference, wifi was not working in my room so they brought a relay. Good equipment: 2 pools, sauna and jacuzzi. beautiful garden/architecture, rooms are spacious with a little patio. Curtains and some furniture look tired. Ok breakfast, a little slow. Dinner disapointing.

After considering various venues for our small and intimate wedding in December 2014 we decided on Illyria House. We wanted our wedding to be different and interesting. We wanted a sophisticated setting that has character and is different to the numerous built-for-purpose mainstream wedding venues available. We wanted our guests to feel at home and welcome as if we were... More

My husband and I decided to spend the weekend at Illyria house to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We were enchanted with the accommodation, made to feel like the most important people in the world by the staff and the food was exceptional. Thank you for a memorable weekend. Sharon.

I booked Illyria House for my wedding in November 2014. Initially, communication was a bit slow, but once we had finalised our meals, drinks, entertainment, and order of events everything went off like clock work. Marietjie (the owner) personally oversaw the table decorations. I can honestly say it was one of the most beautifully decorated tables I have seen, and... More

We are Americans living in the DRC, and this was exactly what we needed. Patient was so attentive and even took his time to explain a bit of South African history to us. I loved how the tall trees really enclosed in the space and even seemed to mute any outside noise, aside from the twitter of the birds and... More

I stayed here with my husband for 1 night prior to a wonderful Rovos Rail trip. At the time of booking I requested the catharine suite which I was advised was available but that they would not guarantee it??? We were given a different room which was the same price but rather pokey. The bathroom was tired with nasty gold... More
