Ellerman House is unlike any other hotel in the city - it truly feels as if you are stepping into a home away from home, and a very lovely home at that! Faultless location, style, and service. The art collection is superb and a spa a wonderful spot for a post-long flight massage. Make sure to do a wine pairing...

Maybe the finest hotel we have ever stayed in. The service, staff to guest ratio, food, wine selections and our guest room were "over the top". Wonderful location overlooking Bantry Bay and Cape Town with magnificent grounds equaled the perfect end to our visit to Africa.
