Once a private home and still imbued with the elegant atmosphere of those glamorous Edwardian days, Ellerman House is now a Relais & Chateaux gem perfectly positioned to make the most of Cape Town’s attractions without being in the thick of a city vibe. There are just 13 rooms and suites, supplemented by two villas in the landscaped indigenous gardens, with a glorious pool amongst the greenery. South African art is a feature that adds to the charm of this sought after stay.

Overlooking Bantry Bay, Ellerman House is an easy drive away from the beaches of Clifton, the buzz of the Victoria and Albert Waterfront and all of Cape Town’s historic and contemporary not to be missed attractions. Within its almost art museum grounds and refined rooms however, the feel is very much private house away from it all with splendid Atlantic views. The service and superb dining at this boutique hotel enhance that sense of exclusivity.
