As the road out of Cape Town winds towards Camps Bay, you are aware of the stunning beauty of the residences perched on the hillside overlooking the ocean. Hidden beneath you is the jaw-droppingly beautiful Ellerman House – one of Africa’s most iconic hotels.
With views over Bantry Bay and nestled into the cliffside, the hotel boasts the most incredible secluded terraced gardens, a superb pool and a formidable art collection. Ellerman House is a gracious Edwardian mansion with only 13 rooms and suites, plus two private villas. It has the feel of a private residence rather than a hotel.
The superb mix of personality and excellence is only possible through the internationally acclaimed team of colleagues who are there to look after you and show you the best of Cape Town. The hustle and bustle of Cape Town and the V&A Waterfront are only a 10-minute drive away – if you ever decide to leave this peaceful haven.
Lunch can be served on the terrace and dinner is usually taken in the art-lined dining room. There is a menu, but the hotel prides itself on being able to cook anything you might fancy, given enough notice. Don’t miss BAR ROC set in granite rocks and opening onto the sunset-facing terrace.
Choose from 13 individually styled rooms and suites or indulge in one of the exclusive-use three bedroom villas. All but one of the rooms in the main house look out over the Ocean and all are ‘traditionally contemporary’ in design. Ellerman House: the jewel of the Cape Riviera.
