Those looking to explore our beloved city by the sea or even travel further afield will find inspiration with our world-class Concierge team, who are as much at ease organising flights to Antarctica as they are securing sought-after table reservations. All you need to do is ask.
Considered to be one of the most significant private collections in the country, the cellar at Ellerman House contains 9,000 bottles of South Africa’s finest labels. It includes many rare or special releases as well as coveted vintages acquired at private auction.
Art is the wistful soul of Ellerman House. Our extraordinary private collection of South African art is unrivalled on the continent, having been meticulously curated over many years to tell the diverse story of our nation.
Local flavours are infused with culinary inspiration from around the globe, making use of only the best seasonal ingredients in our dishes. Our talented and creative team of chefs will delight and surprise you with their vibrant, South African-inspired recipes.
An oasis of calm, the tranquil Spa at Ellerman House sets the tone for world-class skincare and body treatments that will relax and rejuvenate weary travellers, soothe the senses and revitalise the soul.
The lush gardens at Ellerman House tumble down the lower slopes of Lion’s Head, bursting with indigenous fynbos and iconic South African species from all over the country. It is a celebration of the Cape Floral Kingdom; one of the world’s great centres of terrestrial biodiversity.
Tucked under the grand columned veranda at eye level with the shimmering Atlantic Ocean, BAR ROC is a relaxed, contemporary space in which to enjoy the company of friends and one of our spectacular Cape Town sunsets.
Nestled in an expansive terraced garden between the Atlantic Ocean and the Lion’s Head, the Ellerman House hotel and its two adjoining exclusive-use villas offer the best of everything Cape Town has to offer. Whether in search of the comfort and luxury of the hotel’s classically-styled rooms and suites or the bold architecture and design of the more contemporary private villas, we invite our guests to sink in to the heartfelt hospitality and relaxed warmth that makes our house a home.
