We spent a late autumn weekend in Hermanus and had the pleasure of staying at Selkirk House. This 5 star guest lodge is well maintained, modern in design and very well run by Pieter and Aletta Scrooby. Our welcome was warm and friendly, and the breakfasts delicious. I can highly recommend this venue. A little note: although the area is... More

Pieter & Aletta made us so welcome. We enjoyed the our two day stay immensely. Selkirk House is above the golf course with panoramic views of Walker Bay. The accommodation was worth 6 stars and was just pure luxury. The decor and everything else was up to top European standards. We love being pampered and we will certainly be back.... More

This was a real treat! From the awesome designer interior to the delicious bountiful breakfast; from the amazing warm welcome to the cosy deluxe suites with a choice of both summer or winter gowns; to everything one's heart desires.

Very modern accommodation with peaceful and tranquil ambience. Pieter and Aletta made us feel so welcome and at home that we cooked them Sunday lunch. It was so relaxing that we decided not to go out and spent the day indoors chatting to other guests and enjoying the tranquility.

An amazing stay and hosts that were very friendly. The guesthouse is beautifully laid out to give all the guests there own space to relax in comfort. Fountains in the indigenous/modern garden and gazing at wild birds "visiting" from the green belt is a great recipe for relaxation. The suite had a modern design, comfortable and had all the extra...

My wife and I stopped over for 2 nights at Selkirk House on our way to Cape Town and what a great decision that turned out to be. Located in a beautiful and quiet area in the suburbs of Hermanus we were thoroughly spoilt and enjoyed a tranquil and happy stay under the watchful and caring ministrations of Pieter and... More

Selkirk House is a beautiful property with more the feel of a luxury home than a guest house. The rooms are huge, beautifully decorated, and finished with great attention to detail. The view of the bay from the balcony is stunning, as are the views of the mountains and Hermanus itself from the many balconies and rooftop areas. The communal... More

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
