The spirit of Ellerman House
Ellerman House is the quintessential urban retreat for discerning luxury travellers seeking complete exclusivity and privacy in Cape Town. Located in Bantry Bay, it offers spectacular Atlantic Ocean views against the dramatic backdrop of Lion’s Head. Clifton’s beaches are within walking distance, while the best local attractions are 10 minutes away.
Originally a private residence, the historic Cape Edwardian-style mansion has 13 rooms and suites, two ultra-modern villas, the tranquil Ellerman House Spa, and terraced, indigenous gardens. The Ellerman House Wine Gallery, a cellar for the hotel’s 7500-bottle collection of South African vintage wines, offers an interactive, experiential journey into the world of wine. Enhancing the entire property is the owner’s extensive collection of original South African art.
Modern cuisine that reflects the best of local and seasonal flavours, excellent wine pairings, generous-hearted hospitality and tailor-made excursions add up to a world-class guest experience that remains authentically South African.
