This elegant mansion, with its commanding views of the Atlantic, is the epitome of refined simplicity. Located in exclusive Bantry Bay near beautiful beaches and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Ellerman House completely immerses guests in South Africa’s captivating culture and hospitality. With eleven rooms and two suites, two three-bedroom villas, a superb restaurant and wine cellar and renowned South African art collection, it’s a sophisticated haven in one of the world’s most fascinating regions.
Each of the eleven guestrooms and two suites is individually appointed and decorated with original works by South African artists. With private balconies (all but one offer breathtaking views of the Atlantic), luxurious bathrooms, original architectural details and fine furnishings, guest retreats are comfortable and welcoming. The contemporary Ellerman Villas, next to the main house and serviced by a private chef and hospitality team, have their own entrance and can accommodate larger groups with a three- or five-bedroom layout.
Just ten minutes from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and near pristine beaches, Ellerman House offers travelers myriad options — and the hotel’s staff loves to share favorite Cape Town experiences or create personalized itineraries. Private transfers, within nine miles of the hotel, are available. Shop for African folk art in the city’s Greenmarket Square or take a revolving cable car to the top of Table Mountain. Go on a wine safari, learn to surf, try shark cage diving, hike along Cape Point or golf — it’s all possible.
An unforgettable dining experience awaits guests in the Ellerman House restaurant. Magical views of the sea paired with a changing menu of culinary classics incorporating fresh local ingredients excite the palate. The restaurant’s talented team of chefs will also prepare a guest’s favorite dish upon request. Meals are enhanced by the hotel’s extensive collection of South African wines featuring the best vintages from established wines, estates and emerging boutique vineyards. The newly built Ellerman House Wine Gallery interactively showcases this spectacular collection and shares the best of the wine industry with guests staying at Ellerman House.
Ellerman House is committed to the people and environments of South Africa and especially Cape Town. They’ve launched numerous green initiatives to reduce their carbon footprint and established The Click Foundation, to assist the education crisis in South Africa. Yearly, the Ellerman House ArtAngels event raises money to support this foundation and its work in the struggling neighborhoods in Cape Town. The hotel is also a partner hotel with Great Plains Conservation, which seeks to fund threatened environments through low-impact tourism.
Ellerman House, a luxury hotel that was once the home of a shipping magnate, is located in Cape Town, South Africa, in the posh neighborhood of Bantry Bay. Overlooking the Atlantic and just 10 minutes from the city’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, the hotel is about a 30-minute ride from Cape Town International Airport, which services international flights. Guests are greeted at the airport by an Ellerman House representative and enjoy private, chauffeur-driven airport transfers in air-conditioned courtesy cars.
