Ellerman House is the original home of Sir John Ellerman and the historic architecture and stunning seaside setting of this boutique hotel make it a favorite of discerning travelers to the Cape Town area. Amenities abound here: lounge around the large heated pool, with enchanting views of Bantry Bay and Robben Island. Savor delectable regional fare on the terrace, in the vibrant, colorful garden or in the exclusive restaurant. This superb venue is staffed by acclaimed international chefs who will prepare something from the a la carte menu or something just for you. While here, take advantage of the fully equipped gym and sauna, and indulge yourself at the Ellerman Spa. Each of the nine en suite rooms and two suites is individually decorated to create a unique and thoroughly luxurious atmosphere, and the private balconies offer humbling views of this superlative environment. When you’d like to venture off the grounds, enjoy an evening stroll on nearby Clifton Beach, or take the quick 10 minute drive to Cape Town’s famed Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. A Relais & Chateaux property, the Ellerman bears all the hallmarks of that esteemed company: a holistic experience featuring unobtrusive, unparalleled service. It is one of just 14 Relais & Chateaux properties to have received the Purple Shield distinction.
