I have travelled all over the world and have to say this stay rates as one of the best if not the best. I can't wait to stay here again. It is one of the best kept secret spots in Cape Town. The views are the best in the world. Rooms and linen are world class.

Hotel's Favorite
From the moment we arrived, it was like being a special guest in a luxury home. Informal, but great care and attention in every part of the experience. Lots of space to enjoy, even though the property was full. Lovely people, great hospitality and we will.

We truly enjoyed our vacation at Ellerman House. It's honestly the best hotel I've ever visited in South Africa! On arrival, we were greeted by the manager. She measured our temperature and asked us to fill in electronic check-in form on our mobiles- how cool is that! This is an advanced check-in experience, with no need to stay in a long line at the reception whilst waiting for somebody to scan your passport. Interestingly, there is no reception desk near the hotel entrance. When we entered the hotel, we saw antiques and original architectural detail, highlighted by accent colours and contemporary textiles- definitely a more personal and homely welcome. It is not only the welcome to the hotel that is relaxing, the Ellerman House Hotel is an adults-only hotel and only children aged 14+ are admitted, so there is an air of tranquility throughout. Our guest rooms captured the elegance of the Edwardian period, but was well-equipped with all the modern-day comforts. Each room has a balcony or terrace and has tea and coffee making facilities for relaxing moments. We had a wonderful experience with the wine tasting, art gallery, pool and spa. Our stay in Ellerman House was just perfect!

Having heard over so many years about Ellerman House it certainly didn't disappoint! The service is outstanding without being overbearing. Possibly the food could be improved upon - for the rest it was fantastic. If you do stay there make sure you take the art "tour" and do the wine tasting!
