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.

This experience was really one I will treasure with me forever. The staff is the most friendliest bunch of people with smiles that are contagious!! Every the second spend at Ellerman House was precious.

We enjoyed our 4 day stay in this lovely, old traditional house. The security level is very high with every vehicle and person approaching the house carefully controlled. The service is warm and friendly and responded immediately to our needs. One morning we had at least 14 mosquitos in the room--they seemed to be living in the room in an orchid with sitting water. The staff removed the offending plant right away, sprayed the room, and plugged in a device that emitted insect repellent. After that, we had no more problems. We had room 2, with a fantastic view over the bay from the balcony. Due to the age of the house, the doors allow light in from the hall and do not keep out noise at all. Luckily, this is a hotel that attracts an older, quieter clientele so it wasn't a major issue. The bed was comfortable but maybe only a queen size--in any case, smaller than the ones we had elsewhere on this South Africa trip. The bathroom was stocked with good quality toiletries--just the ventilation was insufficient. The air conditioning worked fine. The 24/7 snack pantry is a very nice touch and we found the dinner that we enjoyed in the house one night to be delicious. Breakfast was also very good. The hotel celebrated 25 years since its founding while we were there with a lovely sunset reception. We would consider returning here in any case.

My new global favorite. From the choreographed arrival to the ride out to the airport at departure, everyone was friendly and set on making us feel welcome and comfortable. Seriously considered extending our stay but other commitments got in the way. Will be back for sure. Things we loved: the room, the view, the afternoon G&Ts, the breakfast, the pantry, the complimentary candies and craft booze, the stellar art collection, the security, the exceptional laundry service, the staff. Things we were disappointed by: although we stayed in a spa room we were unable to reserve the service we wanted. Possible to include reservation priority with the room? The bed was great, on the VERY firm side, but the pillows too soft for me. Possible to leave alternate pillows in the room? The safe stopped locking on day two. I should have reported it but kept forgetting. Things you might want to know: unless a little elevator is hiding somewhere (possible) you will need to walk a long flight of stairs to the pantry and dining room, and even more to the wine gallery, the contemporary art, and the spa. These last three also require walking across a lawn. The bathroom door in the spa deck room is really quiet heavy to slide open or closed. There is a tour of the art collection on iPads that you can borrow. (We didn’t know until we were too tight on time to fo it.) All in all, our favorite Relais et Chateaux yet. Thank you, Ellerman House.

Ordered food at 7.30pm and mains arrived at 9.30pm with no explanation or reason for the delay. Tables all around us were complaining and food was over cooked on meat/fish and undercooked vegetables. Lovely wine selection but worst part of the evening was a kitchen assistant being presented as a manager - no one did anything to rectify the situation which was really disappointing
