Laid back with an innate sense of intellectual sophistication, Ellerman House not only offers one of the best views of Cape Town, but also boasts some of its most refined food and dining. For art lovers, on premises is a gallery populated with modernist works from both famous regional artists and international masters. Heading to the suites, each is tastefully decorated, and bigger than most New York apartments. As an added flourish, each room is stocked with goods from local perfumer and designer Charlotte Rhys.
