Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 24, 2011

It will simply be impossible to describe the hospitality and quality we experienced in just words. So that's why I recommend every single soul seeking its way to Hermanus to stay with the lovely manager Ina at The Selkirk House.

Impeccable service in any way possible. Lovely location. Great breakfast. Nice staff.

Definately worth a stay!

Selkirk House is next to the golf course in a quiet part of the town. It's about 2km away from downtown and in walking distance. The guest house has only 5 rooms but a lot of additional space for their guests on severals levels. It has a tv lounge with a huge screen and more than 100 channels. There are also a lot of leather sofas on every level and a wooden deck with a small pool. Rooms are spacious and nice decorated. Beds are very comfortable with 3 different pillows to choose. Breakfast is delicious, the coffee is excellent. The manager - Ina - is very friendly and very helpful. We had a great time.

I have travelled the world for the last 26 years but will never forget the experience at Selkirk House.
What a beautiful house.
On arrival I was warmly welcomed by Ina, the manager. The staff took care of my luggauge and I was offered something to drink. It felt like home. After relaxing in the most exquisite lounge I was escorted to my bedroom.
This room and bathroom was designed for ultimate comfort and luxury.
The garden has a wonderful flow,echoing the silhouette of the mountains in the back ground.
The breakfast menu compares to any 5 star hotel in South Africa.
One thing that stood out for me during my stay at Selkirk House was Ina.
Whatever she did, she did with compassion, care and love.
I will surely return.
Thank you Ina for making my stay so memorable.
