Warm welcome from Pieter and Aletta. Good and effective advice & assistance for car rental and restaurant choice. The guest house is superbly equipped and maintained.If you don't want to be in the Centre of Hermanus, Selkirk is a must stay.

Aletta welcomed us warmly into their stunning and contemporary B&B. The accommodation had several open areas where guests were free to relax as they pleased. It was very relaxing to sit on one of the many balconies overlooking the bay and enjoy a glass of wine. Another notable feature is the amazing artwork displayed throughout. I was also more than...

Modern light and stylish house - with large comfortable bedroom - and open public spaces. Warm welcome from Pieter and his wife. Breakfast was quite good but we had been spoilt the day before at the Alexander Knysna. It's on;y a short taxi ride into town.

We stayed here for three nights during a trip along the garden route and had a fantastic time. Peter and Annette are very welcoming hosts and gave us some excellent suggestions for restaurants and activities during our stay. The house is fantastic, it looks like something from an interior design magazine. It was great to be a little further back... More

The rooms were really spacious with comfortable beds. The entire facility was always kept very clean and had all the necessary amenities. The staff were friendly and the owners really made us feel at home. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone that wants to visit Hermanus.

Had a very enjoyable time here. Charming hosts. Very nice large house, with a large lovely room overlooking the bay. Everything you need. Highly recommended. You will need a car/taxi to the centre etc. Good value too.

Whilst slightly removed from the action of Hermanus, this 5 star guest house is beautifully appointed, luxurious and professionally run. We were warmly received and looked after and will definitively be returning!
