Travel Tuesday - Ellerman House in Capetown

We stayed at the Ellerman House in Capetown during our trip to South Africa.  It was such a treat to stay here.  The hotel is beautiful and you feel like you are in a friend's home and not a hotel.

This is the porch off of the room we stayed in.  We had a corner room with a wrap around porch and watching the sunrise and sunset was amazing!

Here is the inside of our room - you could see the amazing views from the bed.

Another guest room.  All the rooms are very different and each one is uniquely decorated.

Right next to the traditional house there is a modern villa that you can rent.

The Ellerman House has an outstanding art collection and at the bottom of the property there is an amazing modern art gallery. 

The spa pool is very calming.

We ate breakfast every morning by the open window.  The food was absolutely delicious and the restaurant is only open to hotel guests.  We never had dinner here but we did try the scallop appetizer one night while we were having drinks.  Hands down, it was the best scallop that I have ever eaten and I have had a lot of great scallops.  There was a bacon and creamy potato situation going on that was to die for!  We still talk about them!

Here are some pictures of the property.  It was so much fun to walk around the green grass and look at the view and then back up at the hotel.  You really feel like you are at your own private villa.

Here are some more ridiculous views from our room.

While we were there they were in the process of switching out the paintings in the art gallery so excuse the empty walls.  How cool is this space and the wood floor though!?


  1. This home is beautiful! I love the wooden flowers and what a view! Cape Town is one of my most favorite places in the world- there's no place like it! xx Sallie

  2. Thank you so much for this lovely review of our hotel. We really appreciate it, and so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Room 1 used to be Lady Ellerman's private boudoir - one of my favourites.
    Hope to welcome you back to Ellerman House soon!
    Best regards,
