Once the stately home of Sir John and Lady Ellerman, distinguished shipping magnates and investors, Ellerman House sits perched on the slopes of Lion’s Head in the prestigious Bantry Bay residential area.
This elegant Cape Edwardian mansion is known for having one of the most spectacular ocean views in South Africa. Just ten minutes from the heart of Cape Town, the one-and-a-half acre property features a panorama of Atlantic coastline that includes the infamous Robben Island.
Now privately owned, Ellerman House stands as an iconic showcase of South Africa’s finest lodging, cuisine, wine, and leisure. With shaded verandas, tiered gardens, beautiful interiors, and a celebrated art collection, guests from all over the world love the combination of luxury and service this serene getaway offers.
At Ellerman House, no two rooms or suites are alike – each has its own unique traits – but each is impeccably decorated with a traditional yet sophisticated style and all the modern amenities. Each room or suite varies in size, style and décor but each has underfloor heating, air conditioning, satellite flat screen television sets, and wireless internet, as well as the finest beds and linens. Bathrooms are equipped with heated towel rails and deluxe toiletries. Room and suite descriptions are detailed below.
