Ellerman House is the quintessential urban retreat for discerning luxury travellers wanting complete exclusivity in Cape Town. Located in Bantry Bay, the small, privately owned hotel offers spectacular Atlantic Ocean views against the dramatic backdrop of Lion’s Head. Clifton’s sheltered beaches are within walking distance, while local attractions such as the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway and V&A Waterfront are 10 minutes by car. Originally a private residence, the historic Cape Edwardian-style mansion has 13 individually decorated rooms and suites, terraced indigenous gardens overlooking the ocean, and two ultra-modern villas. Enhancing the entire property is the owner’s extensive collection of original South African art.
