“Just as good 20 years on”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Selomar on a regular basis when our children were little. We haven't been back for 20 years and recently we were there again and astounded to find that Ken (now aged 69) is still a fantastic hoist with the same wit and humour. He could be 20 years younger!

The Selomar continues to be a fantastic B&B and I would highly recommend it.

For my Grandma's 80th birthday myself and my family stayed at the Selomar hotel for a weekend. Between 7 adults and 1 baby we stayed in 3 separate rooms - each as clean, comfortable and surprisingly modern as the next!

The sea view room was excellent, and was generously given to my Grandma at the same rate as a regular room. To add to this, she even found an 80th birthday card on her pillow upon arrival!

The breakfasts were first class and nothing was too much trouble for Ken & Irene who were more than accommodating for the duration of our stay.

Great location, great rooms, great rates, great hosts - I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Just had another great weekend with friends at the Selomar courtesy of Ken & Irene and the team. Smashing location overlooking the North Shore and Castle at the front and over the town to the South Shore at the back. Rooms are cosy and bathrooms small but recently refurbished. On top of the friendly service, the breakfast is second to none. Yes you do get presented with the bill early, but as you can only pay in cash or with a cheque this is perhaps better than having any embarassment when checking out. If you remember that this is a B&B and not a full-blown hotel then you shouldn't be disappointed. We have been before and almost certainly will be back!

Room Tip: Higher up rooms have better views, but you have to be able to manage the stairs

We returned to the Selomar this past weekend to find it in fine shape. The breakfasts are fantastic! The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious enough. For the price I would certainly recommend

Irene & Ken are fantastic hosts who made my husbands birthday even more special. Views from our room were stunning. Room was spotless and clean, as was the bathroom. From start to finish a wonderful stay and we will certainly be going back again. Breakfast was excellent - wonderful sausages! Thanks to Irene and Ken.

Room Tip: Worth paying for a room with a Sea view.
