Traveller Reviews

  • Ellerman House - Wonderful. The service was amazing. Everyone was so attentive and aware of your schedule and your every needs.

  • It was even better than I expected. The level of service was second to none. We really enjoyed our ocean-view room and spent many hours sitting on the balcony looking at the sea.
