Although only a 2 star hotel there was nothing to find fault with it. Rooms extremely clean and a good size for a single, food a very good standard, staff were all Scottish, lovely and very helpful.
The entertainment was top rate. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: If you like a bath rather than a shower, then request this at the time of booking as they have the c...

Stayed 7th April to 11th April on a coach holiday. The approach from the rear cat park looked a bit grim but the friendly welcome soon made up for that. Staff very helpful, efficient and cheerful, all day and in the evening. Great food, excellent choice. Evening entertainment was simple but good fun. Views towards the sea from the dining room are spectacular. Rooms tidy, clean and adequate. Bar staff entertaining, especially the bingo calling

Room Tip: Ask fro a sea view

The seaborne is situated on the Clyde, a great view right on the front. The hotel is looking tired and in need of some t.l.c. The room we were first offered room 111 was very small, really a single not big enough for a double. The bathroom extremely small, a converted cupboard. The management changed our room with no fuss and the room we had was much larger clean and comfortable, if lacking a view. The menu choice was good. The breakfast excellent. But portion sizes slightly small. Plus the meal times were set to the minute which did not allow any leeway, especially on returning from a day out. Also dining seating was shared , which again does not suit everyone. But on the bearing in mind cost of the break , great value for money

Room Tip: If a couple not 111

The Selborne Hotel was our accommodation as part of this coach holiday. The room was very clean and well presented with all necessary facilities provided. The food was of a very good standard with a good choice for each meal, in fact the portion sizes were very generous. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful with someone always available on the desk. A very nice touch was that the room staff placed our night clothes on the pillow after making the bed, which I personally thought was a very nice extra touch. The weather was cold during our visit but the rooms were comfortably warm and the beds and bedding were very comfortable. In view of the fact that this hotel is part of a chain I felt that good personal service was provided to make you feel welcome during your stay.

From the warm greeting at reception, to the gracious service of wholesome meals and the friendliest barmen in Scotland, this place will charm the tassels off yer sporran! Comfortable rooms with spectacular views over the Firth of Clyde and any necessary amenities are close by. You have only yourself to blame if you don't enjoy it here.
