It's tough to say enough great things about our stay at the Ellerman House!

The view, the room, the service, the cuisine, and, most importantly, the staff all contributed to an extraordinary experience. I've stayed in some great places over the last few years, but the congeniality, professionalness, and extraordinary performance (particularly when challenged by circumstances beyond their control) set Ellerman House apart from anywhere else I've stayed.

I went half-way around the world to, in part, stay at the Ellerman House. And, I would do so again without hesitation.

Visited Ellerman House March 19-20, 2004. From the second we stepped out of the taxi, we were made to feel like the only two people at the resort. The manager greeted us on the drive, gave us a short overview of the property, and showed us to our room. No credit cards were produced, no identification requested. A skeleton key with a tassel tag was given to us, and the room door was closed. As we looked out the floor to ceiling windows that covered the wall opposite the bed, the view was breathtaking, encompassing the hill below, the ocean beyond, and Robben Island in the distance. Fresh flowers in the room, a bar, with decanters, was built into a sideboard. The balcony was our haven in the mornings, lounging, using binoculars to do some bird-watching, reading, making plans for day trips. At night we left the balcony doors open so we could fall asleep to the sound of waves splashing on the rocky shore below. The tile floor in the bath was heated, as was the towel rack, and the shower was large enough for... We dined on the patio for breakfast and lunch, and had dinner in the dining room - we were greeted us by name, seated, a menu was produced, and we ate with soft music in the background. The only unfortunate thing about the trip is that we didn't book longer - we had reservations at Lanzarec Manor in the wine country the following day.
