Ellerman House in Cape Town, South Africa
Exuding the air of a sophisticated family home, beloved and refined for generations, Ellerman House is a true retreat. This Relais & Chateaux affiliate, residing in the Cape Town suburb of Bantry Bay, gazes across the Atlantic Ocean toward Robben Island. Intimacy is a hallmark, with just nine elegant bedrooms, two sumptuous suites and the sleek Ellerman Villa. Faithfully preserved, this aristocratic property boasts a stunning collection of South African art and superb dining.
Although secluded, you can stroll to Clifton Beach or enjoy a short drive to Cape Town's vibrant waterfront district. Oenophiles can explore the winelands, less than an hour away. Visit the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and take a cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain. And if you're feeling the need for a cozy afternoon in, drift in the heated swimming pool or curl up in the stately library with a good book.

Reviews for Ellerman House
There is not enough we can say about this incredible hotel. The rooms are luxurious, the views are fantastic and the staff is world class. We had stayed in the Ellerman House during our honeymoon in the fall of 2015 and returned this past May with our entire family. Unfortunately, due to a last minute construction project we had to be relocated to a different hotel for our dates. However, the Ellerman House organized the most amazing dinner for us one evening in the wine room on the property. The staff went above and beyond giving us a tour of the hotel, the wine cellars and prepared an insane private meal for the whole family. It was a night none of us will forget. This is easily one of our favorite hotels in the world and it will always be our first choice when visiting Cape Town.

What an experience. We were made to feel so special. a very big thank you from us both. The stay over was exactly what we needed and we wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy all the other facilities.
Ellernan House is simply astonishing. We've stayed at some amazing hotels but this may be the best ever. The views over the ocean are fantastic and the house and garden are stunning. The art collection is simply amazing. I've never been to a gallery that had so many stunning paintings and sculptures. Every room - bedrooms as well as the lounges and dining rooms are packed with the most mesmerising paintings I've ever seen. It was an absolutely joy and a a wonderful privilege to be surrounded by so many things of extraordinary beauty. The staff were simply wonderful, kind and friendly and helpful. We took full advantage and went on the art tour of the house as well as the gin tour (10 lovely SOuth Arfrican gins - we loved the blood orange) and the wine tour. There is complimentary gin, brand and whiskey in the bedrooms. The wine cellar is a jaw-droppingly amazing piece of architecture. The clever, plastic spiral that holds 1,500 bottles of wine as well as the terroir wall and bar are wonderful. I loved lying on a longer, overlooking the ocean whilst being served drinks. There is a 24/7 pantry full of the most wonderful cakes, biscuits and fruit if you get peckish - I did ! The food is amazing, great ingredients showing the best South African produce, beautifully presented. We were so sad to leave Ellerman House and are already trying to work out when we can go back. Worth ever penny. With the SA Rand plummeting, we felt we were getting a real bargain. Starters were under ¬£5 and main courses under ¬£10. Brilliant value.

Magnificent views, art, food and service. Truly felt like a home, very warm and personal. The staff could not have been more generous and our room more elegant. A special paradise and I'm already planning to return next year. Truly a once in a lifetime experience!
