Accommodation rating: Superior
Illyria House, inspired by Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night," is a privately owned mansion set in tranquil gardens overlooking the historic city of Pretoria and its famous Union Buildings. Illyria House is conveniently located twenty-five minutes from Johannesburg International Airport and five minutes from the Pretoria Railway Station, home of Rovos Rail and the Blue Train. Formerly open to royalty and dignitaries only, standards at Illyria are high. The house itself is a treasure-trove of fine art, seventeenth century tapestries and antiques from around the World. With only six rooms, exceptional personalised service and attention to detail is assured. When at Illyria House we recommend that you dine in - as absolutely anything you desire will be procured locally and skilfully prepared. You may choose to dine in the baroque dining room or on your private veranda. Other culinary pleasures include breakfast or luncheon on the marble patio overlooking the garden, or fresh coffee and cakes served in the fountain courtyard.
