We stayed there for the second time in December 2015 and it was every bit as wonderful as the previous occasion: the staff are superb, and the ambience and position of the hotel is amazing. And the art collection and new enoteca are simply fantastic. Empty your piggy-bank and go!

Ellerman House is the only place where to stay in Cape Town. It is a vestige of an era past when hotels were beautifully decorated with extraordinary artwork hanging on the walls. What makes Ellerman House so outstanding, nevertheless, is not the dutifully maintained Cape Edwardian house built in 1906, nor the uninterrupted panoramic ocean views – it is the... More

Ellerman House is unlike any other hotel in the city - it truly feels as if you are stepping into a home away from home, and a very lovely home at that! Faultless location, style, and service. The art collection is superb and a spa a wonderful spot for a post-long flight massage. Make sure to do a wine pairing... More

Maybe the finest hotel we have ever stayed in. The service, staff to guest ratio, food, wine selections and our guest room were "over the top". Wonderful location overlooking Bantry Bay and Cape Town with magnificent grounds equaled the perfect end to our visit to Africa.
