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 The facilities are outdated and run down.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.

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.
