Ellerman House


This gracious Edwardian mansion overlooks Bantry Bay and the ocean, often called the Cape Riviera. Despite its cliffside location, the terraced gardens are expansive, with a large pool and art gallery. With just 13 rooms, it feels very much a luxurious private house rather than a hotel, featuring antiques and original architectural detailing, with accent colours and contemporary textiles infusing the classic structure with a more glamorous and au courant feel. Given enough warning, the kitchen can create an entirely bespoke dining experience and breakfast is a predictably marvellous buffet spread.


Why we like it

Set in a jaw-dropping cliffside location

The extensive collection of South African art on display

The bar, built around the granite rocks and opening onto the terrace which faces the best sunset views in Cape Town

Clifton Beaches are within a 10 minute walk
