Ellerman House

Cape Town, South Africa

Perched on the scenic slopes of Lion’s Head, only 10 minutes from the heart of Cape Town, Ellerman House offers a luxurious, private stay in close proximity to the area’s best attractions. We love the contemporary décor here – it adds a beautiful contrast to the Cape Edwardian building that was once home to shipping magnates Sir John and Lady Ellerman.

The 11 rooms, two suites and two three-bedroom villas all adopt their own style of décor. The Classic House Room has no view, so we’d recommend starting with the Superior House room, which has lovely ocean views. The two Deluxe Spa Rooms are located in the Ellerman House Spa area, and share a deck and pool area, whilst the seven Deluxe House Rooms have their own private terrace with ocean views. The Ellerman House Suites are gorgeous, and feature a private terrace and a separate lounge and dining area.

The two Private Villas are the ultimate indulgence. Built on multiple levels, both villas feature a private infinity pool, and plenty of spacious entertainment and relaxation areas. Whilst the main hotel and Villa Two are for guests over 14, Villa One caters for all ages and is therefore an amazing choice for a family.

The main hotel area is just as modern and trendy, and has plenty of luxurious amenities to enjoy. From the sumptuous Wine Gallery and stylish brandy lounge, to the Champagne Cellar and Contemporary Art Gallery, Ellerman House truly evokes a strong sense of luxury.

After exploring Cape Town or the kooky hotel itself, we’re sure you’ll have worked up an appetite. Ellerman House serves its wholesome cuisine with a panoramic view of the ocean on the three terraces, and offers either crisp, fresh salads in the summer, or comforting curries and meats in the winter.
