The Selwyn

Richmond, TW9 1AW

The hotel is rooted in Richmond’s rich heritage – to which the Selwyn family have made a notable contribution – and whose name has a long and distinguished history in Richmond extending back to the 16th century.

A wisteria-draped Victorian façade gives way to an elegant lobby with lofty and ornate ceilings. Guests can select from a choice of well-appointed bedrooms with neighbourhood or city views and enjoy breakfast or an aperitif in the dining room, which is flooded with natural light from bay windows.  

Selwyn means “Sel (castle)” and “Wyn (friend),” which is reflected in the graceful ambiance, warm welcome and personalised service awaiting guests at The Selwyn.

We're ideally located to explore Richmond’s neighbourhood including its independent shops, and myriad of cobbled alleys, dotted with coffee shops, ice cream parlours, pubs and restaurants. The natural beauty of the riverside is just a short stroll away and a saunter up Richmond Hill, unveils the Turner View, the first protected view in London. Meander onwards to Richmond Park and nearby Kew Gardens to further immerse yourself in Richmond’s natural beauty.
