A Timeless Beauty

I have fortunately stayed in many fine hotels in my life and Ellerman House is right up there with the best of them. Every member of staff from the security guard to the chef are fine examples of how service should be. The art and wine collection alone is reason enough stay for an extended time not to mention the magnificent view. Could not recommend enough!

The Ellerman House has the finest contemporary African Art collection in South Africa. Every room, hallway etc. shows a work of art. The rooms were magnificent and the food was outstanding. In addition, they were excellent in their coordination with our tours and guides. We have stayed at some of the finest boutique hotels in the world and this one rates as one of the best... I wouldn't stay anywhere else in beautiful Cape town

Incredible inspiring art collection . Huge comfortable rooms with views of the ocean , friendly staff and a relaxing sense of being in a retreat in the middle of the city . I liked the details like the gin trolley at sunset are charming and the always open pantry where you can help yourself to snacks and coffee invite you to feel ' at home ' .
