Ellerman House

Ellerman House is a great place in South Africa and is one of the best places to stay. Among them is the world's most extensive collection of South African art and abundant hospitality and high-end service. The Ellerman House family believes they can make a positive difference in people's lives and help them see the value of their life experiences.

Ellerman House has been a symbol of quality for more than two decades. It brings together the grandeur of the past with the conveniences of today. Attention to detail and personalized care are significant at this small hotel.


Here, you can see the best of South Africa from personalized experiences and art that makes you feel suitable to exciting tastes and soul-healing health in the spa. A member of Relais & Chateaux, Ellerman House is a beautiful house in Bantry Bay. That area is one of Cape Town's most prestigious neighborhoods, about 10 minutes from the city center and close to Clifton and Camps Bay beaches.

Moreover, the hotel's opulent ambiance or two three-bedroom villas' contemporary art gallery design will make you fall in love with Cape Town, no matter which one you choose. You'll be able to enjoy everything the city has to offer. Its impressive private art collection and fine food menus also have a beautiful view of the Atlantic ocean.


Bantry Bay has some of Africa's most expensive real estate on South Africa's Atlantic Coast. The Edwardian mansion, Ellerman House, is on Kloof Road. The Cape Riviera offers breathtaking views of Table mountain, Bantry Bay, and the ocean from its perch on a cliff. Moreover, despite their cliffside setting, the terraced gardens are spacious and include a vast pool and an art gallery. Restaurants and beaches are not really within walking distance. However, the hotel provides free shuttles so guests can still enjoy the city's Waterfront, local attractions, and beaches without driving.

Rooms, Suites, and Villas

This is the ultimate hideaway for wealthy tourists who want total privacy and exclusivity. The hotel has two ultra-modern villas, 13 suites and rooms, and a peaceful spa. The hotel is located in Bantry Bay, which offers spectacular Atlantic Ocean views and easy access to the beach and other attractions.

Moreover, the Ellerman House Wine Gallery, which has an extensive collection of South African vintage wines, is one of the essential parts of the house. Contemporary South African cuisine, warm and attentive service, and personalized concierge service give guests a unique South African experience.

Regarding service, elegance, and a world-class way of living in Cape Town's CBD, Ellerman House is the only place to stay. With separate rooms, each with its unique style, you can get a good night's sleep anywhere you choose.


The excellent wine and art work well together at Ellerman House, giving even the most sophisticated diners a memorable meal. Eating a dish that shows off the best of what's in season and where you live is fun. Moreover, the dining room is more than just a restaurant for people staying at the hotel. This is a complete meal inside a high-end family-owned hotel, "Rudolph Blaauw, the Executive Chef, says.

The Wine Gallery

The new Ellerman House Wine Gallery isn't just a place to show off this vast, award-winning wine collection. It also gives visitors a unique, interactive journey into the world of wine. This event celebrates South Africa's 350-year-old tradition of winemaking. Visitors can taste and learn about the country's unique wines.

You can also store your white and red wine in cellars that keep the temperature at a certain level. Besides, the racks are up-to-date. Other things you can find at the gallery include a tasting room for brandy and an interactive and multimedia wine library. There's also a Dom Pérignon cellar with only the most sought-after and short-lived vintages.

Spa and Wellness

There are a few therapists who work only with people one-on-one. Therefore, each session is tailored to the person's unique needs. During this time, everything is done to help the body and mind be at peace. There are three single treatment rooms at the spa and one double room for couples.

Additionally, the spa specializes in cutting-edge massage methods and beauty rituals. These rituals draw on the wisdom and healing traditions of many different cultures worldwide. There is also a hydrotherapy area with a sensory shower, sauna, steam room, etc.

The Gardens

When the grounds of Ellerman House were designed, they were based on the world-famous Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in Cape Town. It took plants and the help of botanists to turn the garden into a place where people could live naturally. It is also possible to find rare plants from the Cape Floral Kingdom among national symbols in the indigenous gardens. For example, Aloe Vera looks excellent with the garden's architectural features. They also look great with other plants from the Western Cape, like succulents called the Karoo, which you'll find there.

Terraced Lawns

You will see this as you look out over the sea on a sea-facing tiered lawn at this property. You will see an abundance of Cape fynbos. The hotel's grounds and swimming pool are protected from the Southeastern breeze that blows in the summer. These plants are called pincushions, proteas, ericas, reed-like restios, scented pelargonium, salvias, and Bacchus and grow in the wild. You will also see a lot of different kinds of birds when you look at the Lion's Head and Strelitzias in front of the restaurant's patio.


The Cape Edwardian-style Ellerman House sits on a Cliffside overlooking the sea and offers a quiet splendor, magnificent privacy, and breathtaking vistas. It's a quintessential urban retreat for discerning tourists. As part of the Click Foundation and the rich Ellerman experience, it is also one of the most significant South African art repositories.
