  • Liked: Staff & service

The staff and food were excellent, but the accomodation

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Dissappointing

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 The facilities are outdated and run down.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.

Stayed 2 nights in May 2019

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

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.

5/5 Excellent

One Night Stop

We spent one night here before our flight back to U.K.Lovely quiet stop, beautifull grounds with very attentive staff.Food great.

Pros: Like stepping back into a bygone age
