6/10 Good

The staff and food were excellent, but the accomodation
1-night trip
Verified Expedia guest review

4/10 Fair

The staff and service by the employees were amazing! The false advertising of the accommodation was disappointing to say the least. It is definitely not a hotel but rather a guest house. The facilities are outdated and run down. The owner was quite condescending and defensive.

Beautiful house, if you appreciate antiques and an old style decor. However, it is the friendly service of Bongani that sets it apart. One could spend a month there and still not discover all the little treasures 😊

A night at tranquil Illyria House
If you like something a little quirky, this will do the trick. A trio of white ducks waddling through the 'ball room' sets the tone... The building is a grand old old house from a bygone time. The food (dinner and breakfast) were fantastic as was the wine selection. The staff are pleasant and willing to please and the property is in a quiet area with easy access to highways.

If you like a lot of servants around and a feeling of being pampered, this is probably a good choice. The house is exceptional and evokes a roaring 20's feel with how it is decorated. If you're a more independent-minded sort it may chafe a bit.

Illyria House was an absolute sanctuary to return to during a week of meetings. Beautiful gardens and general areas, outstanding food served at your convenience. Friendly and accommodating staff, quiet and nicely appointed rooms. Will not stay anywhere else in Pretoria after this!

One in a million chance!
I wanted to go to a spa and then noticed that this hotel had an amazing rate of just R1100 per night. So I booked it immediately. I wanted to go to the hotel's spa for ages and now was the chance to use the spa facilities (sauna, flotation pool, gorgeous outdoor pool, Japanese hideaway retreat lounge) for much less than a spa visit, and on top of that, also stayed in a luxurious suite (named Salome). Breakfast very special, nice presentation of food. Owner also very chatty and made me felt very welcome. The butler is very attentive. Lush garden with many bird species. Many magazines and books to browse in many luxurious lounge areas. One can stay here for a long time!
