With the beautiful Kleinriviersberge covering your view at the back of the guest house and the beautiful scenic Walker Bay view from one's veranda there's really no place else you would want to be than at Selkirk House. The service and hosting style is relaxed, which makes you feel right at home, and when it comes to the food experience and the rooms itself, you receive 5 star treatment all around. The surroundings are quiet and serene. Perfect for a quiet break away. I highly recommend The Selkirk Guest House and will certainly make a point of visiting again.

Spent two wonderful nights at Selkirk House. Really amazing and friendly service from staff. The breakfast was superb. There was a great variety to choose from. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped. Our bathroom had a big bath and a double shower head, with heated floors and heated towels rails. My wife and I would definitely suggest the Selkirk House if you are passing through Hermanus. It is well-located close to the town centre. Thanks again to everybody at Selkirk House for a very lovely weekend!
