Lodge Description

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, Camps Bay, and V&A Waterfront are 10 minutes by car. Originally a private residence, the historic Cape Edwardian-style mansion features shaded verandas and terraced indigenous gardens overlooking the ocean. There are 13 individually decorated rooms and suites complemented by two ultra-modern villas.

The natural splendour of the hotel’s unique location is matched by generous-hearted South African hospitality, exceptional cuisine that reflects the best of local and seasonal flavours, and a vast collection of local vintage wines. A resident sommelier offers private tastings and wine pairings to complement a daily menu of modern classics. Guest privacy is a top priority in this exclusive environment, and the hospitality team prides itself on individualising every aspect of the experience and tailor-making excursions.

A highlight of Ellerman House is the owner’s extensive South African art collection spanning original works from the turn of the last century to current contemporary art, a separate collection of which is displayed in the Ellerman House Contemporary Art Gallery.

Sleek, contemporary architecture and absolute privacy define Ellerman House’s exclusive-use villas built on multiple levels with en suite bedrooms, spacious entertainment areas, private infinity pools and ocean views. In contrast to the old-world elegance of the main house, Villa One and Villa Two add a glamorous edge to the hotel’s classic style and refined ambience.

Villa One incorporates the tranquil Ellerman House Spa, which specialises in cutting-edge massage techniques, anti-ageing beauty treatments and hydrotherapy. Villa Two is built above the Ellerman House Wine Gallery, which is not only a spectacular cellar for the hotel’s 7500-bottle wine collection but offers an interactive, experiential journey into the world of wine.

From the very best of local design and art to cuisine, wine and hospitality, Ellerman House strives to offer a world-class guest experience that remains authentically South African.
