As we arrived the marvellous entrance opened up and the beauty of the House overwhelms you. We were welcomed by the staff who was very helpfull, professional and welcoming. The rooms are exquisite and it was an absolute pleasure. We will definitely visit again.

It's a fairly bold statement given we're never likely to stay in every great hotel in the world but any other place would need to go some to match the quality, beauty and high level of service you receive at Illyria House. Truly amazing!
