We have visited many 5-star establishments in and around Cape Town, and we definitely enjoyed Selkirk very much! You get all the luxury that comes with 5-star accommodation, but instead of the cold, hotel-feeling you get at most places, Selkirk gives you that home-away-from-home feeling that is not easy to replicate. A big bonus at Selkirk is the communal lounge that has an enormous gas fire-place, bar, smoker-friendly balcony, and huge TV which we used to watch the rugby on Saturday! Breakfast was amazing, with a large variety of choices available and eveything fresh and delicious. We especially liked the complimentary chocolate and sherry upon arrival! Unfortunately it was raining, so we could not make use of the swimming pool and braai facilities, but the underfloor heating and heated towel rails made up for that! We highly recommend Selkirk to anyone who wants to visit Hermanus and be treated like family, while enjoying all the luxury on offer.

We have previously stayed on marine drive but Selkirk is certainly worth the short journey from the centre. The property is stunning throughout with fabulous bedrooms and extensive shared areas for guests including a nicely stocked wine cellar. The immediate neighbourhood seems very safe and there are ample parking bays at the property. We didn't get to meet Pieter but Aletta was a charming host and the breakfasts are fantastic too. Cabs into town were readily available but there is also plenty of parking if you wish to drive. Hermanus golf club is a very short drive from the property.

Selkirk House is a very well run Guest House - very stylish and with all the contemporary features a traveller with high standards could wish for. Pieter and his wife are offering great service. They give you recommendations for restaurants or excursions, make a very good breakfast and are all in all very helpful and charming hosts. You can drive easily from Selkirk house to all the nearby sights. We enjoyed our stay very much and can fully recommend the B&B.
