About Illyria House

The serene beauty of Illyria House has always been an irresistible attraction to all lovers of fine things. An enchanting colonial lifestyle unfolds against the backdrop of classical music, fine antiques, 17th century tapestries, white-gloved butlers and a resident duck family.

A magnificent colonial manor with sweeping views across the treetops of the historical Jacaranda City is set in tranquil gardens abundant with birds. It is no wonder that Illyria House is often referred to as a ‘little paradise’.

Secluded, yet centrally located, a stay at Illyria House is ideal in combination with a luxury rail journey, wildlife safari or Indian Ocean Island retreat. It holds the promise to add an unforgettable authentic experience in Colonial African hospitality.

White gloved butlers, discreetly working their magic to please, provide an unrivaled personalized service. Services rendered by your butler include organizing historical tours, sport activities, country picnics, individualized shopping outings and transfers to attractions in the city and surrounding areas.
