Ellerman House is the quintessential urban retreat for discerning luxury travellers wanting complete exclusivity in Cape Town. Located in Bantry Bay, the small, privately owned hotel offers spectacular Atlantic Ocean views against the dramatic backdrop of Lion’s Head. Clifton’s sheltered beaches are within walking distance, while local attractions such as the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway and V&A Waterfront are 10 minutes by car. Originally a private residence, the historic Cape Edwardian-style mansion has 13 individually decorated rooms and suites, terraced indigenous gardens overlooking the ocean, and two ultra-modern villas. Enhancing the entire property is the owner’s extensive collection of original South African art.Compared to the old-world elegance of the main house, Villa One and Two are sleek and glamorous with en suite bedrooms, spacious entertainment areas, private infinity pools and ocean views. Villa One incorporates the tranquil Ellerman House Spa, which specialises in cutting-edge massage techniques, anti-ageing beauty treatments and hydrotherapy. Villa Two is built above the Ellerman House Wine Gallery, which is not only a spectacular cellar for the hotel’s 7500-bottle wine collection but offers an interactive, experiential journey into the world of wine.The natural splendour of the hotel’s unique location is matched by generous-hearted hospitality – guest experiences and excursions are all tailor made – modern cuisine that reflects the best of local and seasonal flavours, and a vast collection of South African vintage wines. From local design and art to wine and food, Ellerman House strives to offer a world-class guest experience that remains authentically South African.
