The owners were happy to accommodate my plans to get engaged and the stay was memorable. One of the highlights of our time there was the healthy breakfast we enjoyed every morning. The staff was also friendly and ready to assist with anything.

From the moment we stepped foot into Selkirk House, we were treated very special. We were welcomed with a smile and left with hugs!! Selkirk House is an absolute spoil with the luxurious decor and very spacious rooms. We enjoyed the heated towel rails, underfloor heating and other spoils it had to offer. I would definitely recommend Selkirk House to... More

We had the most wonderful time at the Selkirk Guest House - Pieter and Alette were so accommodating, always available, and exceptionally helpful with their knowledge of the area and their recommendations. The house is always impeccably clean, and the breakfasts were delicious. We stayed in a room with the most fantastic bathroom - what a bonus!
