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!

The heading says it all- and whilst the guest house was superb, with lots of little 5 star touches, our hosts Peter and Aletta really made for a great stay. The extra touches included lovely fine linen, decent coffee machines in the rooms, heated towel rails, hand mirrors in the bathroom, welcome sherry and choccies and just really beautiful furnishings...

Pieter, our host, made us feel like he known us forever, like staying over at friends. The rooms are beautifully decorated with luxurious stuff that makes a weekend away a memorable one. The breakfast was fresh with a wide variety and very filling!

There is a kind of hospitality that goes to the heart. At Selkirk House there is plenty of it. Sea, mountain, the exceptional environment of the fynbos, wineyards and a lovely host couple. Highly recommended!

We were put into a front room on the first floor which was extremely spacious and comfortable. The views of the... More

Where to begin? Pieter, our host, was so warm and inviting. We were immediately shown to our room which had a distant view of the sea. The decor was beautiful, the bed was so comfortable, the space was large and everything was finished to perfection. The breakfast selection was to die for, catering to all tastes and appetites.
