Our Venue Reporters love a good Hotel-as-Home venue. When we spoke with Anna about The Ellerman House and she sent us the information about the venue, we may have immediately looked up flights to South Africa. We at The Venue Report love nothing more than a sprawling pedicured lawn overlooking the ocean. The combo of grassy green meets sparkling sea is pretty darn ideal for celebrations. On top of this magic, the fine folks at Ellerman House just HAD to throw in the black and white striped lounge chairs.. Again, a fave combo. We are officially razzled and dazzled.
Located in Bantry Bay, Cape Town. The philosophy of Ellerman House is to share the best of South African culture with its guests through art, wine, dining, and gracious hospitality. The hotel has South African works of art dating from the 1800s to works from today’s rising artists housed in a separate Contemporary Gallery. Ellerman House also has launched their Wine Gallery to showcase their ,500-bottle collection of South African Wines. HISTORY LESSON: Once the stately home of Sir John and Lady Ellerman, distinguished shipping magnates and investors, Ellerman House sits perched on the slopes of Lion’s Head. The elegant Cape Edwardian mansion is known for having one of the most spectacular ocean views in South Africa. Just ten minutes from the heart of Cape Town, the one-and-a-half acre property features a panorama of Atlantic coastline that includes the infamous Robben Island.
HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE?: Easiest way is to fly into Cape Town International Airport; from there it is an easy 25-minute drive to Ellerman House.
