Excellent stay, wanted something cheap but nice for a night whilst I was competing in a sports tournament. Room was lovely and clean, shower was great too. Had a great nights sleep and breakfast was fantastic, university grounds were beautiful. Would definitely recommend and revisit for my tourna...


It was a convenient location and a pleasant room. It's a small point, but there were no hooks anywhere, in the room or the bathroom - nowhere to hang a dressing gown or a wet raincoat etc.


There was a lot of noise from a function in the grounds of Cripps court until 11 pm. I may have chosen a room on the main college site if I had realised it would be so loud.


Lovely to have linen/pure cotton sheets especially in the hot weather. Good room. Not convinced by the level of bathroom cleaning but this could be to do with Lino floors.


Excellent value for money - rooms in hotel condition, very good breakfast in beautiful dining hall and the the porters were super helpful and courteous. Highly recommended.


The college has a lovely atmosphere. Our room was clean, bright and had an ensuite bathroom.


A wonderful experience all round. Thank you for offering this at such a great price.


Everything was great, staff very pleasant. Would definitely use Selwyn again.


Porters very kind!
