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.

Selkirk House, set in a quiet suburb of Hermanus, has a beautiful interior and luxurious bedrooms with huge ensuite. It's very quiet and peaceful and excellently run by Pieter and Aletta.
