Ellerman House just received an extensive refurbishment, positioning it as one of Cape Town’s top hotels.
Ellerman House in Cape Town recently underwent an estate-wide refurbishment, positioning itself as one of Cape Town’s most chic boutique hotels. With just 11 rooms, two suites, and two private villas, the intimate Cape Edwardian hotel is a sophisticated, secluded oceanfront getaway. Most of the rooms have been refurbished with colors of blue and green, drawing inspiration from the sea nearby and flora of Cape Town. The bathrooms have also been updated to tie into the new contemporary look and the large private terraces are furnished with lounge chairs to sunbathe or enjoy the ocean.
Ellerman House’s public spaces received an overhaul as well. The Lounge was painted green to match the summer garden, and the Library now features a bright yellow couch for a pop of color against the African-themed wallpaper. The bar lounge area also received updates with new upholstery and coffee table.
The former home of English businessman Sir John Ellerman is positioned in an ideal location only 10 minutes from Cape Town and the bustling V&A Waterfront, and within walking distance of Clifton Beach. There is also a long list of amenities available onsite, including a solar-heated swimming pool, spa, fully-equipped gym, an extensive wine gallery, and a contemporary art gallery.
If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the hotel amenities, Ellerman House is the perfect start or end to an African safari. Its onsite art gallery – the Ellerman House Contemporary – houses a large cross-section of genres or art from South African artists representing over a hundred years of South African culture. The wine gallery at Ellerman House is similarly a work of art, with the finest wines from the Cape’s local vineyards and 20-year old brandy. It’s a unique space that not only functions as a tasting room and cellar, but showcases the boutique hotel’s extensive wines.
