Ellerman House

Accommodation in Cape Town

Enjoy true exclusivity and the essence of luxury at Ellerman House, an elegant and sophisticated Edwardian mansion with fine gardens and spectacular Atlantic Ocean views.

In Bantry Bay on the slopes of Table Mountain just below Lion’s Head you will find Ellerman House, the elegant Cape Edwardian mansion that is now Cape Town’s finest boutique hotel. Ellerman House is conveniently located just 1½km from the famous Clifton Beach and a five-minute drive from Table Mountain National Park and 10 minutes’ from Cape Town’s city centre.

Those in the know head here for its sheer luxury, sophistication and excellent service, as well as the magnificent surrounds – the one-and-a-half acre property is also famous for its astonishing panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Genuine privacy and service are paramount in this five-star boutique hotel, which offers just 11 rooms, two suites and two three-bedroom villas individually decorated in the finest style.

It is no surprise that this Relaix & Chateaux property regularly wins accolades, including a place on the coveted Condé Nast Traveller Gold List 2017. With so much to do in Cape Town, be sure to set aside enough time to stay ‘at home’ at Ellerman House so you can make the most of the two beautiful lounges, library, farm-to-table restaurant and dining terraces, brandy lounge, wine gallery, champagne cellar, spa, fitness centre and heated swimming pool. The Ellerman House contemporary art collection is famous, and a visit to the sleek, private art gallery is not to be missed. Excellent service takes top priority here, and the open pantry for guests is another thoughtful example of the hotel’s famous hospitality: with fresh, homemade treats prepared daily, the pantry is perfect for a midnight snack or for helping yourself to supplies to take with you for a day exploring Cape Town.
