Ellerman House

Cape Town, South Africa

Tucked away between the slopes of the Lion’s Head mountain and the cobalt blue Atlantic Ocean is Ellerman House. We highly recommend this luxurious boutique hotel for its lovely selection of rooms, suites and villas. The hotel prides itself in offering warm, local hospitality and the runs through to the individually-styled accommodation options that feel more like a home away from home. You’ll find all of the creature comforts you’d expect from a boutique hotel and some.

We love savoring our breakfasts on the sun-drenched terrace which overlooks the sea as well as indulging in a facial, massage or a soul-soothing sound treatment at the Ellerman Spa. Take a moment in between your sightseeing adventures to discover the indigenous flora or outdoor art pieces in-and around the hotel and terraced lawns.
