Until Sheraton opened in Pretoria, Illyria House was known as the only 5 star hotel in Pretoria. Illyria House offers a very colonial experience where you will get to know about Pretoria and the South African history. It’s overall a unique experience and different from other experiences I’ve had, but the property and especially the rooms is out-dated. The service and food is good and it’s overall recommended as a unique experience in South Africa.
My opinion: Good+ experience.
