The kitchen team, headed up by an experienced chef, produces daily a la carte lunch and dinner menus featuring modern, classically inspired cuisine with a South African twist.

Ellerman House Wine Gallery

Wine is taken very seriously at Ellerman House, and the hotel’s 7500-strong collection of South African wines represent both established and emerging labels from the Western Cape’s world-renowned wine regions. Many of the wines in the collection are rare or special releases augmented by sought-after vintages bought on auction. Wines from the cellar are only made available on the hotel’s wine list once they have been optimally aged and are deemed ready for enjoyment at peak maturity. Many of these fine wines are also available by the glass without compromising on quality, thanks to the Le Verre de Vin preservation system.


Ellerman House Art

The Ellerman House art collection takes visitors to this fine hotel on a journey that explores the huge social and cultural shift that South African art has made from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. The art in this collection tells of the character of our land and the expression of our unique South African experience. From the time of the early pictorial historians of the midnineteenth century, such as Thomas Bowler, you acknowledge that this country has a flavour of its own – an essential nature that distinguishes it from other places.

Ellerman House Spa

For the exclusive use of hotel and villa guests, the Ellerman House Spa is a natural extension of the property’s commitment to quality and personalised service. Situated on the ground-floor of Villa One, it is approached through a garden with tranquil water features, lush indigenous plants and ocean views. A small, highly experienced team of therapists offer a carefully considered menu of beauty and body treatments designed for relaxation, rejuvenation and self-improvement. Everything is designed to soothe the senses while the body and mind are coaxed into balance.

Ellerman House Gym

Equipment includes free weights and a bench, treadmill, stationary bicycle, full-body toning machine, stability balls, weighted medicine balls and exercise mats.

Ellerman House Library

The Ellerman House Library offers guests a collection of fiction and nonfiction titles, plus magazines from around the world. Our guests love to sit and read books in the morning, or enjoy an after-dinner drink by the fireplace. For convenience, a nearby computer and printer are connected to the network and available for complimentary guest use.

Ellerman House Cuisine

As guests enjoy panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, our team of dedicated chefs, lead by Executive Chef Grant Daniels, delight with vibrant South African inspired recipes. Extraordinary attention to detail has always defined the dining experience at Ellerman House and Grant Daniels brings his classically inspired style with a nod to his Cape Malay roots to guests at Ellerman House. Growing up on the Cape Flats, just outside Cape Town, Grant’s passion for cooking was sparked by spending time in the kitchen with his mother while she prepared traditional Cape Malay dishes for Sunday lunch.

Ellerman House Pantry

The Pantry is your guilty pleasure. Fresh, homemade treats are prepared daily, making it perfect for a light snack between meals, or for grabbing supplies before heading out for the day.


The Benguela Diamond Safari, exclusive to Ellerman House

Ellerman House, in partnership with Benguela Diamonds, is offering its guests an exclusive opportunity to embark on a ‘diamond safari’ to the mineral-rich west coast of South Africa – a unique place of origin for diamonds worthy of the most exquisite jewellery settings. Benguela Diamonds is named after the predominant current, the cold, nutrient-rich Benguela Current, which flows in a northerly direction off the westcoast of South Africa.

Ellerman House Louis XIII experience

LOUIS XIII is the most luxurious spirit on earth and takes up to 4 generations of cellar masters and 100 years to produce. 1569 – The wars of religion rage and one of the battles fought between Catholics and Protestants takes place in Jarnac, Charente. Three centuries later, Paul-Émile Rémy Martin I would acquire a saddle flask decorated with a fleur de lys, found in that very same battle field. 1640 – King Louis XIII officially recognises the terroir of Charente and Cognac eaux-de-vie, for which he instigates the first commercial regulations.
