We stayed at the Selkirk house for 8 days and we felt right at home...
First Styn and then Ina, made us feel like we were the first quests ever!!
The architecture is fantastic, the rooms big and very complete and the breakfast made with such dedication, amazing!!! I would recommend this guesthouse anytime:-)))

everything was at five stars hotel level. You need to have a car since the location is a little bit outside the city centre. If you arrive and don't see anybody around, don't worry they (the staff) will appear very soon.

Selkirk House provided the best accommodation for us, thanks to its location in a calm area, the very comfortable room with a fantastic view of the ocean, the rooftop terrace for stars view, the rich breakfast, and warm attention of the owners. Eccellent rating!

We had a splendid stay at Selkirk. It is a very atmospheric B&B with an caring manager Ina. She made our stay very comfortable and welcoming. She booked good restaurants and made a very good breakfast. The most important meal of the day. Throughout an place to come back.

We were not excited to be booking accommodation so far from the beachfront, but honestly their is nothing to worry about. The accommodation is excellent and great service, highly recommended. We would love to come back and stay again.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Fantastic guest house with an exceptionally attentive and friendly hostess, Ina, who made us feel very welcome. Not only is the accommodation of a high standard but also the hospitality shown was second to none. After our warm reception, Ina very kindly offered to make some dinner reservations over the next few nights.
Lovely place stay. A bit out of town (20-30 mins walk) . We walked into Hermanus during the day and also in the evening and took a Tuk Tuk home. Worth a visit.
