Terms & Conditions

PLEASE NOTE: As a courtesy, we would like to inform you that a new owner has bought the property in front of Ellerman House and the building started in January 2016.

Below you will find a detailed report with all the information you need and images. We will keep updating you during the course of the year, should there be any changes.

We would still encourage you to book Ellerman House. It does not take anything away from the incredible location and exceptional experiences we offer our guests.

What you need to know about what is happening now:

  • We have erected a 2.5-meter screen on top of the wall between the two properties. This has minimised the effect the building site has on the view from our property. Please refer to the images below.
  • They are excavating and going down to street level, so the site will get lower and lower, and eventually not a lot will be seen from our property.
  • We do not have control over this site, so we cannot stop building at any time.
  • Once construction of the new house starts in June 2016, we will send a full update again after we’ve assessed the situation.
  • The height of the new property will not impact our incredible view, and it will not be higher than the previous property’s roof.

The new property will have a beautiful green roof that will be an extension of our garden, which we are very happy about.

It is not ideal and completely beyond our control, but we will endeavour to handle it to the best of our ability. Should you have any questions regarding future or existing bookings at Ellerman House, please contact Ailsa Burns on ailsa@ellerman.co.za

Reservations: Please note that all rates are quoted in ZAR (Rand) and are subject to change. Rates are quoted inclusive of VAT at 14% where applicable (subject to change). All major credit cards are accepted. Child Policy: Children over 14 years of age are welcome at Ellerman House & Villa Two, and children of all ages are welcome at Villa One.

Confirmation and Payment: Written confirmation is needed within 14 days of reservation, failing which Ellerman House reserves the right to cancel the reservation. * 20% non-refundable deposit of accommodation is required on receipt of written confirmation.* The full balance of accommodation is payable six weeks prior to the date of arrival.

Cancellations: All bookings confirmed in writing will be liable for 20% of full accommodation if cancelled earlier than 31 days of arrival. *50% of full accommodation is payable if cancellations are made within 30 days of arrival. * The full accommodation account is payable if cancellations are made within seven days of date of arrival. * In the event of premature departure the full duration of the stay, as originally booked and confirmed, will apply. *Refunds of deposits/prepayments for bookings are at the discretion of management and are dependent on the ability to re-let the room/s.
