If you value privacy and understated elegance, Then Ellerman house is for you. The great value of Ellerman house is that it flies under the radar, unlike some of the flashy new hotels down in the city bowl. The staff, service, amenities and food are all of the highest caliber. I am almost afraid to review further, as I would prefer this remain a hidden gem. My wife and I came for our honeymoon and will be back for sure.

Stayed: September 2017

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

Room Tip: We were in room 11 and it had a magnificent bedroom, living room and balcony overlooking Bantry Bay....

Dear Barry

Thank you for your kind words! I'm glad that you enjoyed our art which is very much a part of our very essence. Thanks too for the feedback on our food. This is an area which we have been placing a lot of attention on. The same applies to concierge so it's encouraging to see we're on the right path. I have shared your comments with management and staff. We hope to see you back again soon. Best wishes Paul and the rest of your Ellerman Family

This is such an incredible property. The service is phenomenal, the views breathtaking and the facilities are beyond luxurious. We enjoyed the art gallery very much as well as lounging in the sun outside with beautiful views of the beach. We will definitely stay here again, wonderful staff and all round great experience.
