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.

We spent 3 nights at Selkirkhouse and felt really at home there. Ina, the manageress, takes personal pride in her work and ensures that her guests are looked after according to their needs. 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

We spent two nights in the wonderful Selkirk House which is lead by its lovely manager Ina. The room with the view to the sea was simply amazing. Everything was very clean and every room nicely decorated. The breakfast was very tasty and has always been prepared with love. Ina was always ready to provide us with more information about... More

Beautiful accommodation in a lovely setting our hostess could not have been more helpful, recommending very good restaurants and booking tables for us. We really loved it and would stay there again happily

Our stay was wonderful! Selkirk House is very spacious and has a serene and peaceful environment. We really had a stunning time and Ina does an amazing job with this very beautiful Guesthouse. Everything is clean and spotless ! The breakfast is really scrumptious, offering organic and fresh duck eggs with delicious mushrooms and other goodies and all made individually... More

You want the welness of a 5 stars hotel with the convenience and the attention of a guest house, then choose Selkirk house. A dive into a designed house, very nice room, attention to the detail but also the wram and friendly attention of Ina to take care of our needs. Yes, Selkirk house is worth the stay. We had... More

We recently spent two nights at Selkirk House with our adult children. The house is huge and we were the only guests. We were visiting local friends so there wasn't much that Eva the host needed to arrange for us but we had no doubt she would have done if required. Very attentive and welcoming the house is beautiful rooms... More

This was our third time back in 2 years. Again we were a party of 5 and felt totally spoilt by Ina in every way. Nothing seems too much for her to make her guests feel comfortable. We all love the fact that the house is quiet, one of the many reasons we agreed on to go back to Selkirk... More

A very clean and nicely decorated guest house, yet a bit too quiet for our taste. After standing outside for quite a while, buzzing the door bell and honking the horn of our car, we were greeted and felt welcome. However, we didn't really get a full presentation of the property and services and as soon as we had any... More
