“Sitting along the oceanfront in Cape Town, the exclusive Ellerman House exudes glamour. The cliffside setting affords dramatic ocean and mountain views — you cannot help but unwind with the lulling of the waves and the salty kiss of the sea breeze.”

Telegraph review:

“This Edwardian mansion, set in a jaw-dropping cliffside location overlooking the sea, is Cape Town’s most exclusive hotel, offering discreet glamour, splendid isolation and spectacular views. It’s also one of the most important repositories of South African art – part of the rich Ellerman experience.”
