Taking the Art Tour through Ellerman House is like taking a journey through 100 years of South African culture. One of the finest private art collection in the country, I feel privileged to be getting so up close and personal with it. Crossing genres and subject matters, you're bound to be inspired by these original fine art pieces and sculptures, you'll even find them in the individually decorated rooms (as well as all those essential deluxe touches!)
Now moving from beautiful painted landscapes to the real thing. Perched up high in prestigious wind-free Bantry Bay, the panoramic views over the lush tiered gardens draw your eye down the mountain to the sparkling Atlantic and beyond to Robben Island. Wanting to see more, I ask the extremely attentive and knowledgeable concierge to arrange a few tailor made trips to the best of the city's attractions. Highly exclusive, personalised service and hospitality are signatures of this grand and gracious Cape Edwardian hotel, as is its exceptional cuisine. Perhaps the sightseeing can wait until after lunch !
