Is this right or should it be...

I see no need for a refelxive pronoun. I wouldn't call it wrong, though many would, as it is very common. However, it's not great style and I'd avoid it. Reflexive pronouns should only be used when necessary- for clarification (I hurt myself- to distinguish from I hurt him) or emphasis (I did it myself- nobody helped me). ;-)
Some people seem to think yourself is more polite than you. Other than that I can't see why it is used in such a case.
It's a case of over-correction IMO.;-)
I agree 100%.
