JetSet Hotels: Ellerman House


In an exclusive residential area overlooking the ocean, 10 minutes from central Cape Town, this Relais & Chateaux hotel could be called a highly crafted bed-and-breakfast or a graceful beach house for 20 guests. From the moment you arrive, you feel as if you settling into a mansion guest room, with residential appointments and a gracious staff that within just a short time, feels like family.

During your stay you are encouraged to roam the house, finding unexpected delights as you go. And don’t be surprised if you find yourself doing so in your bathrobe and slippers; after all, this is your ‘home away from home’. Tempt your palate with an open kitchen intended for communication between you and the team of chefs. Looking for a late night nibble? Not a problem – Ellerman House has a fully stocked pantry with local favorites, beers, wine, water and soft drinks that put the term ‘mini bar’ to shame. The team at Ellerman House has perfected 24-hour service that is attentive without being invasive. With the push of a button, whatever you may desire will be delivered to your door in mere minutes. Their office is always open and the staff welcomes you in for conversation, while they relish in recommending their personal favorite restaurants or hidden shopping secrets for you to discover in town.

Without doubt, Ellerman House offers sumptuous luxury, but it is the unparalleled intimacy and comfort, paired with a genuine, unpretentious staff that gives this retreat its unique style of service.
