Ellerman House

The Ellerman House is a spectacular landmark in Cape Town’s premier coastal suburb of Bantry Bay. This premier luxury residence is the quintessential location for discerning travelers to Cape Town. The true splendor of Ellerman House rests in faithful preservation of its historical architecture, combined with discreet hospitality and efficient service reflecting the ambience experienced only in the comfort and familiarity of home. Unsurpassed, sweeping views from Bantry Bay across the Atlantic to Robben Island are a privileged pleasure from the private balconies and the beautifully lawned terraces surrounding the large, heated swimming pool. To delight in the tranquility and ambience of Ellerman House is to experience discreet hospitality, all-embracing service and excellent cuisine. Exquisite meals created by acclaimed international chefs are served to perfection on china, silver and crystal. Ellerman House has two of the finest collections of South African original art and vintage wines, each individually selected to enhance our guest's experience. Character, Courtesy, Calm, Charm and Cuisine - signatures of Relais & Chateaux, Ellerman House is one of only two Relais & Chateaux hotels in Cape Town and one of only 14 purple shield hotels in the world.

Ellerman House is an historical landmark situated on quite the most spectacular site on Kloof Road in the premier Cape Town suburb of Bantry Bay. Bantry Bay is wind free and with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Guests can experience breathtaking year round sunsets. It is within walking distance of the famous Clifton Beach, ten minutes from the centre of Cape Town and the bustling Waterfront and a mere 45 minutes from the heart of the winelands. It is the perfect springboard from which to discover the Cape's many and varied attractions - sun-drenched beaches, word class restaurants, majestic Table Mountain, spectacular scenic drives, golf courses, the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, and some of the special places that only Capetonians know.

Ellerman House is an idyllic location for a honeymoon or special anniversary - linger over an evening aperitif on the terrace under the deep blue starry night of the southern hemisphere and listen to the romance of the Atlantic, while savoring Cape seafood cuisine and local vintage extraordinaire.
