Nice, quiet place

Posted 04-Apr-2014
Pros: Beautiful place in a beautiful, quiet location.
Cons: The iron provided in the room was useless,the tv was small, with only a few channels and far from the bed
Location: Location is beautiful and quiet. Not much nearby as it is tucked away but a short taxi ride will take you to South Croydon high street.
The room was way bigger that the double we have booked and it was clean. The bed was big and comfortable. Plenty towels provided

Pros: The breakfast potentially is good. The grounds are beautiful and the golf course a decent challenge,
Cons: As above. And the prices for bar food are very high, especially as you could drive 5 minutes to a local pub and get something just as good for less
I have stayed at the Selsdon Park many times over the years and am still baffled how such a potentially great hotel on beautiful grounds can continue to underachieve. 1. The 2 lifts were not working for the entire stay. 2. The single bed against a wall would probably be comfortable for a child..... 3. Why is there still heat blasting out from heaters in the corridors that make the rooms unbearably hot (at least for once the heat in the room was off, although opening a window is still a challenge). 4. The breakfast buffet is good, but on quieter days, having sausages, bacon and stale fried eggs sitting in congealed fat is most unappetising. Simple things that would make a big difference if corrected. But for some reason they never do....

One of the worst hotels

Posted 02-Nov-2013
The hotel staff was not very friendly and in fact a bit rude when I asked her to double check if breakfast was included. My room had terrible kitchen smell. It was in an extension of an extension. Room was very cold, noise all night from doors banging. Generally an awful night stay. Hotel rooms need a refit, some travel lodges I have stayed in on motorways are quieter and in much better condition.

Outside the City

Posted 30-Oct-2013
Pros: We really enjoy the older feel to the hotel. This hotel is extremely old and they have continue to keep the original aspect to it.
Cons: More shuttle to the nearest station and airport pickup would also be nice.
Location: The East Croydon station is a short bus ride away. Local pub is near by as well.
We stayed here on our honeymoon. It was nice to be somewhere without all the noise.

Solid Hotel but really not 4/5

Posted 19-Aug-2013
Pros: Lovely grounds and nice layout in lobby and most common areas.
Cons: Thin walls and generally shoddy quality fixtures and fittings in the standard rooms.
It wasn't terrible but the standard the establishment claims compared to the quality of service received make it a pretty poor value choice. Thin walls making for loud rooms and disappointing quality food. If this was a 3 star it would have gotten higher ratings but if you're expecting a better overall standard of hotel than a typical Premier Inn I wouldn't recommend.

grand building in beautiful grounds

Posted 05-Aug-2013
Generally a very nice stay in a grand building in beautiful grounds. The view from our room overlooked the golf course with trees beyond and no notion of being in Croydon's outer suburbs. Minor shortcomings were a slightly unattractive bar area and food and drinks were pricey.
