Wow wow wow! From the minute we walked in I was in love. Such great hospitality and wonderful hosts, I would send my friends, family and any of my clients here. It was amazing. It is away from the hustle and bustle but not too far from town with a lovely market on a Sunday. The vibe is so chilled... More

Great hosts at Selkirk House, we were made to feel at home from start to finish. Very clean, large comfortable room, with all the luxuries of a 5* hotel. Large bathroom with separate bath and walk in shower. Lovely breakfasts, fresh seasonal fruit every day and a choice of cooked items. The hosts know the area very well and can... More

Myself and my husband stopped off here for a night on our garden route road trip and we were not disappointed. The house completely lives up to the five star rating and does not fall short at all. We stayed in a room on the first floor with a lovely balcony. The room was massive, tastefully decorated, linens were fresh... More

When in Hermanus over the weekend we stayed at Selkirk House and the entire experience was nothing but outstanding! it was elegant, Clean, spacious, private but also homely. It's close to the city centre but far enough to still be peaceful. Room #5 opens up onto the foot of the mountain. The owners are spot on, friendly and more than... More

Selkirk house is definitely worthy of its 5 stars. More a boutique hotel than an everyday guest house, everything was 100% as one would expect from an establishment with this rating. Very large spacious rooms and lounge areas, stunning plunge pool (even in winter) and quiet secure neighbourhood, 5 minutes drive from the city centre or beaches.

We spent a weekend at Selkirk House. What a beautiful, luxurious and yet comfortable and friendly home away from home. The attention to detail is quite incredible. Entry and lounges overwhelm with beauty, and the suites are quite magnificent. Breakfasts are delicious and beautifully prepared. The hosts are friendly, helpful and delightful company.

We booked a two day stay through Daddys deals at Selkirkhouse in Hermanus. When I phoned to make the booking, 3 weeks in advance, Pieter already made me feel welcomed and we couldn’t wait to get there. Well the day arrived and we were welcomed and booked in by Pieter. Pieter offered to make restaurant bookings etc. One can trust... More

What a great experience!! Awesome guest House, Friendly people and great Breakfast. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the extra effort to accommodate us and our one year old. The guest house also has a great view of the mountains and sea!!
