A space for the classic raconteur to wax lyrical about his or her African escapades. A space to say goodnight to another glorious day in the motherland while watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. This is BAR ROC.

The Studio

As a private & exclusive luxury hotel in Bantry Bay, Ellerman House is one of Cape Town’s finest accommodations for the discerning traveller. With Cape Town being one of the world’s top destinations and known for fast growing design and art, the development of The Studio was a natural progression for Ellerman House. The aim was to create a space on the property where guests will be able to purchase high-end products that are unique to South Africa.


The Ellerman House Library offers guests a collection of fiction and nonfiction titles, plus magazines from around the world. Our guests love to sit and read books in the morning, or enjoy an after-dinner drink by the fireplace.

For convenience, a nearby computer and printer are connected to the network and available for complimentary guest use.


The Pantry is your guilty pleasure. Fresh, homemade treats are prepared daily. Perfect for a light snack between meals or ideal for supplies whilst out for the day.
