We had to ask to find this lovely B & B. It is high up at the foot of mountain. What a fabulous welcome by Pieter - and such a great room. Love this place. We were free to explore & use all facilities. Breakfast served by A letter were perfect.

What a find Selkirk House was, located in a quiet residential area the house is perfect. Most of the previous reviews say it all. E mails prior to our stay were answered promptly, with help booking restaurants and trips arranged in advance which was a great bonus. At weekends the restaurants can get fully booked, so it pays to make... More

From the time we arrived to check in, and we were early we were greeted with smiles. The room with the gorgeous garden took our breath away. Spotlessly clean with those little features that you don't expect even from a 5* establishment. Bathroom floor and towel warmers come on in the early evening. Breakfast was 5*. Pure luxury and our...

We absolutely loved Selkirk House. We were greeted with friendliness and they completely went the extra mile. After my wedding I fell sick and the owners phoned their local Dr to see if they could assist. The rooms are spacious, well equipped with all the necessary "tools" to make your stay awesome. Loved the creature comforts like the air con,... More

Breathtakingly chic B&B, I cant rave enough about the modern beautiful rooms! Don't even get be started on the luxurious bathroom which boasts a double walk in shower, deep bathtub and heated towel rails. All linens, towels & robes of good quality. As a makeup artist and fashionista I was personally inlove with the lights above mirrors in bathroom :).... More
