We stayed at Selkirk House in the first week of July 2014. We had the enormous house all to ourselves and were able to fully enjoy it. Even though we arrived very late at night, the Steyn helped us to settle in and directed us to the best place to enjoy some food and drinks. He certainly made us feel... More

This luxury B & B has a hotel feel to it with upmarket spacious accommodation. The new management has excelled in the short time that they succeed Ina and we thought she was great. Aletta has a great warm soul and is wonderful as an innkeeper. She organised super breakfasts for my families with their very particular culinary needs. She... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to stay in Hermanus on short notice and most places were booked up, we found Selkirk house but weren't too keen because of the location as everyone wants to be close to the sea when visiting Hermanus. We decided to book the room based on the photographs and we coudn't have... More

This was a lovely guest house in Hermanus, just on the edge of the Fernkloof reserve, with views to the mountains and the sea. Ina runs a perfect establishment and the house has lots of space and is very well appointed. But sometimes the fact that it was very spacious meant that it lacked a little atmosphere. I loved the...

This is a wonderful modern B&B located in a residential part of Hermanus above the main town and is therefore very quiet and relaxing. Ina, the Manager, was extremely welcoming and very helpful booking restaurants, tuk-tuk transport, and a whale watching trip for us, all of which were excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending this B&B.

Great rooms, lot of luxury and quality. Very good breakfast. Wi-Fi was not functioning properly but for the rest we had a nice stay. Biggest room I have ever had. Fantastic bed and bathroom with large shower and bath. Owner was very helpfull but a bit disapointed that we only stayed for one nicht.

Our room was very comfortable and well furnished, with a large bed with good matresses and good quality linens!! The ensuite bathroom was very clean and had... More
