Art is the wistful soul of Ellerman House. Our unrivalled South African art collection has been meticulously collected and curated to tell the diverse story of our nation. 

The works span over two centuries, from Thomas Bowler commemorating Cape Town in the 1800s to more recent pieces from artists such as William Kentridge and his striking social commentary work in our Contemporary Art Gallery.

Our in-house art guides are available to tour guests through South Africa's most important art collection, as she maps out the history of our nation. Tours to galleries throughout the city can also be arranged, where special private access is afforded to our guests.

Due respect is given to one of our country's most celebrated industries. The hotel’s 9500-strong collection of South African wines represents both established and emerging labels from the Western Cape’s world-renowned wine region.

Many of the wines in our collection are rare or special releases and have been augmented by sought-after vintages bought at private auction. Wines from the cellar are only made available on the hotel’s wine list once they have been optimally aged and are deemed ready for enjoyment at peak maturity.

We invite you to join our sommelier for daily wine tastings every afternoon.
