We loved our stay here. Peter was so helpful, booking our Sharkdiving for us and recommending a company that did not disappoint. The Guesthouse is stunning, with fantastic in room facilities. This is luxury defined. The bathroom alone is reason to stay here... I would highly recommend a stay here whilst in Hermanus.

Great place to stay, very comfortable nice clean big rooms. Felt very safe and secure. Enough parking space but be careful it's a little for low down car! Breakfast excellent, nice area to sunbathe, would go back!

The name B&B is a misnomer as far as the British concept is concerned. This is totally dissimilar to any I have stayed at in Britain. The level of comfort, cleanliness and space is unlike anything I have experienced in a non-hotel setting ever before. Added to that is the utter friendliness, hospitality and kindness shown by Pieter and Aletta....

A little late in writing this review as we stayed in October 2016. We stopped off at Selkirk House on our self-drive holiday from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. Selkirk House was a recommendation from our travel agent and what a great choice she made. The house itself is simply stunning and in a very quiet residential street in Hermanus....

We had a really pleasant stay. The house has a great design in a quiet street. The people are lovely and gave us some nice tips for whalewatching as well as our further trip. We really enjoyed the breakfast, which was great! Thanks so much!
