I took my boyfriend's mother to Illyria house for a high tea on her birthday. It was meant to be a special occasion, and as such I didn't think twice about paying the R300 per person for the occasion, especially since the menu seemed lovely. I couldn't have been more wrong! The "beef bruschetta" was a bloody steak on white... More

Amazing Colonial ambience, exquisite gourment food, beautifully presented on silver platters by white gloved waiters. Atmisphere enhanced by families of cute ducks free to wander around the magnificent garden and inside the hotel at total liberty.Personal butlers assigned to the rooms. On arrival we were stunned by the palatial establishment. This was our third visit and our accompanying guests were... More

A very surprising stay at an unknown-to-us hotel: the Illyria House. A most lovely guest suite / quarters, Quite comfortable, roomy and private: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a sitting room in- and outside. And that was just for the 2 of us! The bed linens were of great quality and had a lovely antique look. Loved it all 100%. Will... More

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

It's a guest house. So don't try to compare it to a 5 stars Hotel. The Spa area is only a small Jaccuzzi. I loved my stay there ( for Christmas). So charming, quiet, and cute. Attentive to details and a really carring staff!!!

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
