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.

Pieter offered to make restaurant bookings etc. One can trust... More

My wife and I stayed at Selkirk's bnb for a weekend out of the city and could not have been more impressed with the accomodation and service. The owners are extremely friendly and have the wellbeing of their guests in mind all the time. The accomodation is world class with fixtures such as underfloor heating, heated towel rails, king sized... More

This purpose built guest house truly offers five star accommodation. Modern large rooms and bathrooms well appointed. Large guest sitting room. Attractive pool area. Breakfast outstanding quality and service. The house is located in an attractive residential area next to the mountain and has views to the sea over the town from upper floors.

Better than super. I have been to many luxury hotels and resorts around the world but but Selkirk in Hermanus, South Africa certainly takes the cake. Absolutely fantastic hosts in Piet and Aletta , entirely superior luxury, unbelievable value. Most definitely the best available anywhere. Judge Annandale, Swaziland.

We had a lovely night at the classy and luxurious Selkirk House. VERY comfortable bed, stunning bathroom and a fantastic breakfast. I could not have asked for more. Pieter and Aletta are really fantastic hosts and we thank them for making our stay in Hermanus a pleasurable one.

We spend the weekend at Selkirk Guesthouse from the moment we arrived we were treated with royalty. The room is spacious, very modern and very clean. Pieter and Aletta is such a wonderful couple and they go out of there way to let you feel at home. The breakfast in the morning is out of the world. Thanks again Pieter... More
