We had a delightful experience at Selkirk with the Innkeepers. They never missed a detail from the great comforters on the bed, the toiletries, splendid breakfast and they were so knowledgeable about the area. They also had a very nice wine cellar and bar area....More

Five stars for the property and service; another star for the breakfast; and still another for excellent hosts. We had a wonderful stay and this will be our memory of Hermanus. We cannot wait to go back to Selkirk House.
