Positive Reviews

Helpful and friendly staff

Staff are very friendly, and always checking to see if you need anything. They're a great source for local knowledge and inside sightseeing tips, and do whatever they can to accommodate your schedule. They're just as warm and receptive to canine guests, and help make sure that dogs are also comfortable and well attended to.

Beautiful rooms and location

Rooms at The Selkirk Arms Hotel are comfy, and provide a good layout for unpacking, keeping travel items spread around, and for you to stretch your legs and amply relax. The common rooms are also lovely, and everything complements the scenic, tranquil setting and backdrop.

Excellent dining choices and atmosphere

The menus get rave reviews for their presentations, portions, and tastes. The skill and freshness of the dishes are evident, and ingredients are tailored to allergies or dietary preferences. Decor and seating arrangements are cosy, especially when the fireplace is in use.

Negative Reviews

Housekeeping could be more consistent

The one downside to the rooms is that housekeeping is not always consistent or thorough. Dusty spots and areas that need to be refreshened or vacuumed are occasionally seen.

Bathroom may feel a bit cramped for some

Bathrooms don't have the ampleness that the rest of the rooms do, with shelf space and layout cutting into comfortability. The shower facilities may also feel a bit tight, depending on size.

Nothing else negative about the inn

So far, no other negative opinion has been expressed by the guests about this hotel.
