Warm wooden floors and décor in shades of honey are completed by comfortable beds with crisp percale linen. Each room is fully serviced and stocked with tea, coffee and biscuits.

Sumptuous breakfasts are served in the open plan dining room and lounge. The winter chill is kept at bay by a roaring log fire and, during summer, one is able to enjoy the scented rose garden. Picnic baskets, lunch boxes and dinners are available upon request.

No need to miss your favourite show - there`s TV with DSTV , as well as an internet hot spot for business guests` convenience.

Just off the N1 near to the CSIR, and other business parks around Menlyn, 40 on Ilkey couldn`t be more conveniently located, with spacious and secure parking. In the unlikely event of a medical emergency, the Faerie Glen Hospital is situated nearby.
