From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. We were pleasantly surprised that our room (room 1) had both a shower and bath, from the website photos we thought it had a bath only. Thank you so much to Pieter and Aletta for being amazing hosts at Selkirk House, you guys have truly thought of everything.

We have stayed at Selkirk House twice and will never stay anywhere else in Hermanus ever again. We went with our whole family for two nights and took every room in the house. The minute we walked in we were made to feel like we were home away from home. Peter and Aletta were so accommodating and nothing was too... More

Selkirk House is by far the best guesthouse we've stayed at. Luxury deluxe! It is most tastefully decorated. Our room and bathroom with a balcony was extremely spacious. There was absolutely nothing lacking. It was sheer luxury and just perfect in every way. Inspite of the luxury, Selkirk House had a special warmth to it which filters throughout the place.... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Selkirk House - the room and bathroom was very spacious and we even had our own sun deck! This boutique hotel is very stylish and furnished to a very high stand in a superb contemporary theme. Breakfasts were superb and the service was outstanding. Our hosts Pieter and Aletta went out of their way... More

Wonderfull, luxury, just perfect. Very spacious room and perfect bath. Clean and nothing was missed. We loved to stay in Selkirk House. We highly recommend your guesthouse. A bit outside of Hermanus, but in a nice and quiet neighborhood.

Over the last twenty years I have had the pleasure of staying in some wonderful luxurious hotels, particularly in the Far East. I did not for one second expect to see this level of quality reflected in a Hermanus guest house. Ok, you are in the suburbs a wee bit but wow what a surprise faced us with a beautifully... More

We arrived just after 18H00 on the Friday evening, to a huge welcome from Pieter, who came running out to greet us. On entering Selkirk House, we were completely in awe of the beautiful upmarket decor, and the modern technology was very impressive. Our room was spacious, beautiful and clean, had an amazing bathroom, and the views were exceptional. We... More

We arrived in Hermanus unexpectedly on the 4th January 2015 and desperately tried to find accomodation We, being 5 adults, came across Selkirk House and made an urgent enquiry. Luckily for us there were a few rooms available which we took. I am a very well travelled person internationally and I have yet to find more upmarket accomodation so reasonably... More
