“The finer things in life happens here”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

If you are ready to get lost in this magnificant destination, experience the best of sophistication, class and romance. This is the place for you.
Perfect for Weddings, Anniversaries, Break aways and just to refocus, and regroup from the busy today.
A real gem, Pretoria's finest!

“What a joke!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Wernt to Illyria house for a sunday lunch. The menu has to be one of the most overpriced ones South Africa. At first, I thought that quality would match price, however my Seafood salad at R220 was very, very average. Comparable to Ocean basket or Spur, not that of a 5 star hotel. In addition, the decor of the hotel was very old and in serious need of an upgrade.

“Overpriced and overrated”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We went to Illyria House for lunch and was so dissappointed! A traditional beef lasagne was one of the cheaper options at R185 and was not up to scratch. Overall the service was friendly but this did not make up for the below average lunch!

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I had a birthday lunch for my birthday at Illyria. We were 10 people, and we were welcomed with incredible professionalism and warmth. The food and service was of the highest standards, we were suitably impressed. As always the incredible beauty of this little gem took my breath away, from the lovely gardens and tastefully decorated spaces to the perfect table settings and beautiful silverware. I just love this venue, and will recommend it to anyone.

“WHAT AN EVENT FOR A 60TH BIRTHDAY”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

MANY thanks Marietjie and staff: JAN, PATIENCE, JOHANNES and kitchen chefs and staff,
I manage to make a booking 3 days in advance for my husbands 60th birthday. If you have a special group of 20 people, all you need to do is phone and book! From the chamber musician to the last course on the magnificent verandah, was perfect in every way! And as easy as making one call! Every dish of the 5 course dinner was so tasty! Every one enjoyed it tremendously and are planning to visit Illyria house in the future for one of its many offerings!
THANK YOU MARIETJIE!
25 JANUARY BIRTHDAY GROUP
