Filled with incredible pieces of art so much so they have an art tour of the hotel, a one of a kind wine library with a Dom Perignon cellar this is the ultimate luxury for those who like the finer experiences in life!

Client Reviews

  • Beautiful house, beautiful people, beautiful views, beautiful City

    Ellerman House lived up to all expectations. I have long heard of this extraordinary place and I was not disappointed in anyway. Sadly time was short otherwise I would stayed so much longer. My thanks to Paul, Chantelle and all the staff for looking after us so well. Recommended of course, and very highly.

  • Exquisite!

    An absolutely beautiful property, with stunning views, and a level of comfort and service that is simply unrivaled. Every need was accommodated and often anticipated well in advance. We dined twice on property and each night the food, the presentation and the service were beyond compare. We had an absolutely wonderful stay, and will no doubt be back on our next visit to Cape Town.

  • What a way to start a Safari Trip!

    My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary at the Ellerman House. This grand dame of a facility is over the top. Its charm, ocean views, elegance and service are second to none! The facility offers every type of comfort, including private reading rooms, ocean view eating areas for all meals, a free snack bar, work-out facilities, swimming, spa and steam and the MOST AWESOME WINE ROOM EVER! It’s a must see.
