We recently visited the Ellerman House for our honeymoon and were spoiled into utter bliss.

There are so many amazing things about this hotel.

Antonio gave us a great welcome and beautiful tour around the grounds. If you are a foodie I recommend trying their dinner. My Husban

We stayed here for my partners 50th birthday and from the doormen at the gate to the on duty manager - everyone was professional and helpful. I had to take balloons and decorations there before our arrival and they decorated the room perfectly. Oh the room - WOW it was amazing

It is a hotel or a house ? What about room service ?
House. The service is second to none. There is a pantry that you can get a wide assortment of food from anytime. When we were at the pool, the staff brought by snacks and drinks. It is a wonderful place to stay.

My husband and I are coming on our 35th wedding anniversary and would value your opinion on what room to ask for. Thank You Bonnie Piceu
Dear Bonnie We would love to have you for your very special celebration. We have 5 different room categories and would suggest the following three to be the most romantic. Deluxe Spa Rooms (shared deck and pool with an ocean view), Deluxe House Room (private balcony and ocean view), Ellerman House Suite (Private balcony, separate lounge and dining area with an ocean view). We are currently running a Honeymoon Promotion at Ellerman House. If you book a minimum of 4 nights in a Deluxe House Room category, 6 months prior to arrival, you will receive a 20% discount on your accommodation. If you book less than 6 months prior to arrival you will receive a 10% discount on accommodation, a 60 minute couples massage, canapés and sparkling wine followed by a three course meal paired with wine and a bottle of French Champagne. Please feel free to email or Reservations Manager, Ailsa Burns, at info@ellerman . co . za and she will be happy to help you make the occasion unforgettable.

Hello, I would like to get some information about your restaurant that is inside the hotel, as a part of the collaboration with RELAIS & CHATEAUX, specifically the #3 CREATION. Thank you, Yael, Israel.
Hi Yael The restaurant at Ellerman House is open exclusively to guests staying at the hotel. The #3 Creation that was referred to are gift vouchers that people can buy to experience different Relais & Chateaux properties around the world. Ellerman offered these Creation Vouchers during April 2013 - April 2014. We are still a part of Relais & Chateaux but the promotion regarding the Ellerman House vouchers have expired. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. Kind regards The Ellerman House Team
