The Ellerman House was beautiful online and even more spectacular in person. Not only is the property and it's view amazing but the staff, the room appointments, the FOOD but also the eclectic and delightful distinguished art collection hanging throughout the property. Lastly, unfortunately, I have no suggestions for improvement. This experience, from our perspective, was perfection.

Still my favourite place in Cape Town, by miles. The staff and overall experience make this one of the best hotels in the world. The spa and treatments are also the best I have ever had, so massive thanks to Louise too.

The room was beautiful and had great views - just a shame the weather was so poor. My wife was completely wrapped up in the art all through the property and in their own gallery.
