My wife and I have travelled to many corners of the globe and stayed in some amazing places. However, we have stayed at Ellerman House more times than at any other location. Yes, it's expensive to stay here but the price is just a number when one receives such superlative service and is truly made to feel "at home".

You don’t check in to Ellerman House, you “arrive”. We stayed here at the end of a two week trip to the Western Cape. We wanted to end the holiday staying in a nice place in Cape Town so we could see a bit more of the city. What a mistake. This isn’t the sort of place you leave. It’d...

Ellerman House was a UNIQUE place to stay ... Feeling of coming home in your own Victorian House instead of that awful Hotel feeling that we don't like. The food was excellent, the staff was superb ... really, a must visit if you go to Cape Town!
