Ellerman House is the Cape Town mansion we’d all have in our dreams. It’s a superb boutique hotel with unrivalled views of the bay.
Ellerman House describes itself as being for “discerning guests accustomed to the finer pleasures of life” and everything about this glorious hotel reflects that statement. Once a private home, Ellerman House now accommodates up to 30 guests in individually designed and furnished rooms and suites, most with wonderful views across the well-tended gardens to Robben Island and the Atlantic Ocean.
Facilities at Ellerman House include a spa, a large heated pool, lounges, a library, and a dining room. All of these are attractively furnished with period furniture and contemporary and classic works of art. The spa is a haven of tranquillity with a colour therapy steam bath, sauna, and an infinity pool.
From the hotel you can head out easily onto Cape Town’s bustling waterfront and soak up the atmosphere. The shopping and dining are world class, and the Houses of Parliament, National Gallery, Museum, and Planetarium are all within ambling distance.
