Ellerman House

Last updated: 24 December, 2023

Ellerman House revels in the grandeur of travel, from the private art collection to 13 luxurious rooms decorated in a discreet old-money style.

If your pockets are deep, the two opulent villas offer perfect privacy and perhaps the city’s best sea views.

There’s a spacious in-house spa, glorious pool terrace and an impressive wine cellar, while celebrated chef Peter Tempelhoff oversees the menu of South African-inspired cuisine.

Throw in panoramic ocean views and you’ll soon see why this is one of the most exclusive hotels in Cape Town.

Surrounding area

Ellerman occupies a prime piece of real estate below busy Kloof Road with uninterrupted sea views in the exclusive residential enclave of Bantry Bay – the most wind-free suburb in Cape Town, sheltered from the southeasterly that blows along the coast in summer.

It’s a 10-minute drive to the V&A Waterfront and CBD, and half that to Camps Bay.
