We love what we do

Ellerman House was created as a means to channel our passion for South Africa through art, wine, cuisine and sincere hospitality so that others may share in the beauty, bounty and diversity of our country.

The spectacular location of Ellerman House, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from the foot of Lion’s Head, is undoubtedly part of the property’s enduring allure. Its breathtaking position inspires calm serenity while being in close proximity to the Cape’s numerous attractions.

The charming boutique hotel you see today is an original Cape Edwardian mansion that was built in 1906 and has stood sentinel over Bantry Bay for more than 115 years. With only 13 bedrooms and two private villas, we excel at offering our guests a world-class level of service that is intuitive and understated.

Ultra-luxurious facilities, incredible views and an atmosphere of refined comfort attract the most discerning travellers and keep them coming back, year after year. It is the feeling of home; of being enveloped in the beauty and warmth of a place that is at once exotic and familiar.

Welcome to Ellerman House – we invite you to make yourself at home.
