We spent 5 nights of our honeymoon in this lovingly decorated colonial style hotel. Already at the arrival we were warmly welcomed. The hotel has 12 rooms and offers enough space to move freely in the garden, at one of the two pools or in the teahouse. The garden is lined with colourful flowers and cypresses. You feel like in paradise. We already met the owner of the colonial property on the first evening. A wonderful lady with an incredible artistic talent. Breakfast was served every morning on the covered terrace overlooking the wide garden. Besides fresh fruits there was an incredibly varied selection of skewers (Pancakes, Egg Benedict,...).
The staff was extremely courteous! We had one partially two servants, who were responsible only for us. Absolutely professional, fast and reliable!! Dinner was so delicious, we didn't have an evening out of the house. Our highlight was the seafood platter for 2 to celebrate! We had an unforgettable dinner in a wine cellar with fantastic accompanying wines.
The wellness offer was to be booked at very short notice, which is why we made 2 spa days. An absolute recommendation!
For the following day we were organised a city tour with a private guide.
All in all, we can only enthuse and would come back here at any time.

Good morning Elke,
Thank you for your wonderful review.
We are delighted to hear that we made your honeymoon unforgettable.
Illyria House is indeed a gem in Pretoria and once you are at the house you forget that you are in the city. Our gardens are very special. Our butlers go out of their way to make the guests feel welcome and treat them.
As the spa is on the property and we do have permanent therapists it is ideal for last-minute bookings.
We do hope that we can welcome you back soon.
warm regards

We stayed for 2 nights in the hotel. Great service and experience. Our 3 year old boy enjoyed the house and garden as never before. I have to say that the rooms / way to rooms are not so child friendly but the great house/garden compensated it! You have to be a little open minded and see the beauty/fun of this place. If you are expecting a Hilton Hotel, don't go to this hotel and book somewhere else ;-)
We want to do warm greetings and many thanks to Johannes and Remie!
