Stayed over for one night this past weekend and everything about Illyria is magical. From the moment you walk through the gates it feels like you've been transported to a different world where you are the ruler and where Illyria is your palatial residence.
The full body massage managed to transport us right back to our Thai honeymoon last year. Johannes looked after and shared stories with us like we've known each other for many years.
Dinner and breakfast was served on time and presented very tastefully. The food itself was five star quality and came in sufficient portions which is not always the case with fine dining.
Our room, or rather suite, left my wife speechless and no foto's can do them justice.
The antique furniture, art pieces and general maintenance of the residence is also worth mentioning. We could really pick up that a lot of personal care and attention has gone into keeping Illyria magical.
As a Pretoria resident I'm really proud to have Illyria house as the best accommodation option for travelers to our lovely city.
