Ellerman House’s reputation precedes itself, and this is the place to be in Cape Town. The Edwardian mansion overlooks the South Atlantic Ocean, offering spectacular views in an unrivalled location. Just half an hour from the airport and you’re in the exclusive Bantry Bay, home to this stunning hotel. With just thirteen bedrooms and two private villas, you can be sure of a superb level of service.
Ellerman House is not just a hotel; it is an experience from the second you arrive to the moment you leave. Surrounded by the country’s most sought-after real estate, you could be mistaken in thinking that you’re staying in a lavish private house rather than a hotel.
There is an enviable collection of art on show around the house too that would rival any of the best art museums and galleries. Speak to the concierge team and they will be only too pleased to organise a tour with Talita, the hotel’s art guide.
Each room in the hotel is designed differently with one common theme - art and antiques. These are mixed together to give an elegant feel to each space. A stunning combination of textiles, colours and timber are brought together in a remarkably contemporary finish.
The Ellerman House concierge team don’t just offer you the usual days out. They really do go that extra mile, designing a bespoke itinerary tailored to exactly what you want to see and do. With a magnificent portfolio of experiences, there is something for everyone. Experience the stunning Benguela Diamond Safari, exclusive to Ellerman House guests, or immerse yourselves in the remarkable White Desert experience – a flight to Antarctica for 24 hours you will remember forever.
The food here is stunning, with sumptuous breakfasts, lush lunches and mouth-wateringly beautiful dinners. The chefs are more than happy to discuss interests and needs to produce bespoke dining experiences.
Included in your package is access to a wonderful 24-hour pantry, a selection of gorgeous snacks and nibbles for when the mood takes you.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
