My first time ever stay at Ellerman House this past February--and it won't be my last. I've traveled the world for 32 years - and I know quality establishments, but Ellerman kicks it all up a notch. Probably the only other establishment I've experienced that matches its quality is the Aman Hotel chain - Ellerman House is right up there...

Ellerman House, the concept of which is "home away from home" Given its size with only 15 guest rooms/villas and great hospitality, literally you can feel at home here. Food quality and wine selection are also superb. If you have chance to come to Cape Town (and are looking for hideaway with spectacular sea view), this is the one.

I reviewed Ellerman House 2 years ago. I went again last month. It one of the best places I have stayed. The new wine cellar simply has to be seen, it is impossible to describe. The food, accommodation and the location are first class. The South African art on display is also worth a trip to see it. I reiterate...

We stayed there for the second time in December 2015 and it was every bit as wonderful as the previous occasion: the staff are superb, and the ambience and position of the hotel is amazing. And the art collection and new enoteca are simply fantastic. Empty your piggy-bank and go!

Ellerman House is the only place where to stay in Cape Town. It is a vestige of an era past when hotels were beautifully decorated with extraordinary artwork hanging on the walls. What makes Ellerman House so outstanding, nevertheless, is not the dutifully maintained Cape Edwardian house built in 1906, nor the uninterrupted panoramic ocean views – it is the...
