History

The grandiose Gothic mansion effortlessly blends Victorian and Tudor architectural fashion with modern facilities. Modified and enlarged by architect Hugh Mackintosh during the 1920s, east and west wings were added, creating a total of 200 bedrooms.

The history of the estate spans much further back. The famous Blackfriars Arch, dating to the earlier 13th century, was recently rediscovered, shrouded by trees within the grounds, just one of the historic wonders found at the venue. Add to this the cedar tree reputedly planted in the 16th century by Queen Elizabeth I!

Reviews

  • Mr and Mrs Barnett - 5th August 2018

    We just wanted to thank you again for all the hard work you put in for our wedding. We know you have a tough job, we really appreciated your flexibility and effort in helping our wedding match our vision. The day went without a hitch!

  • Mr & Mrs Johnson - 31st August 2018

    We would like to thank you for ensuring our wedding day exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and everything ran smoothly. Please also extend our thank you to the other members of the team that contributed to the wonderful day we had especially Stefan and Peter. Thank you so much for everything.

  • Mrs Francis

    We had our wedding reception here on 8th July and we had an amazing day. Everything run smoothly throughout the day due to our coordinator being on hand at the beginning and throughout the day and the well organised staff in the evening. The food was amazing for the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet - everyone complemented this. The terrace room was set beautifully and some of our guests even said it's one of the best weddings they've been too. The whole building is stunning. Everyone is really helpful and friendly. We had a few problems with rooms that we had booked not showing on the booking system but this was sorted quickly and we were priority. Would highly recommend for a wedding.

  • Mrs Knowles

    We could not have asked for a better day. From the word 'go' the staff were professional, helpful, and accommodating. We could not fault them. The wedding reception was stunningly beautiful and went without any problems. We can only sing praises to the event manager and assistance. A huge thank you to them all!! The property itself is old but that is part of its charm. The atmosphere of the building is regal as far as we are concerned. With its beautifully designed and elaborate ceilings, decor and well-kept grounds, Selsdon Park Hotel was just what we were looking for.... The rooms were clean and spacious and well looked after. I felt they were value for money. We had 30 guests stay overnight and none of them complained. As for value for money of the whole event... well worth every penny. It was a fantastic experience and a memorable day for all. We will never forget the day and will always have a special place in our hearts for Selsdon Park Hotel. I am looking forward to see Paula and Becky (Events managers) again to show them the wedding photographs. Even though the event is over, the staff are still interested in us as people and not just as customers. We are very impressed.

  • Mr Coen
