The creme de la creme of Cape Town Hotels --- Beautiful views of Cape Town were enjoyed by us during our honeymoon stay at the Ellerman House.

I just loved the Artwork at the Ellerman House, it was great to relax in the Gallery with a good book.

I definately enjoyed the discreet hospitality, excellent service and luxurious facilities and beautifully decorated restaurant with a true gourmet dining experience. We could have not chosen a better hotel for our honeymoon - we got absolutly spoilt.

Stayed there are didn't want to leave. We received the most wonderful personalized service and the meals were presented in such a great way...simply the best and most delicious.

The Ellerman House in Cape Town has become a very special place for us, we had stayed there many years ago already. I could not think of staying anywhere else here. If this isnít the best accommodation in Cape Town, I donít know what is.

Absolut luxury, so beautiful...we felt like royals. What a beautiful hotel. We arrived very tired and jet lagged but this changed the minute we walked into the Ellerman House. What a gracious hotel - and rooms: our room had such a nice balcony from where you can look down over the whole area and the ocean...MAGNIFICENT.

The swimming pool and spa are very nice. The food in the restaurant is one of the best...we loved every minute of our stay and wished our holiday would never be over.

We want to come back here next year for our wedding anniversary, I cannot wait.
