We wanted to see a show at the capital theatre and took advantage of the opportunity to stay overnight at the hotel. It was a wonderful stay in a cool historic building with old fashioneds in the Mahogany bar and eggs benedict and pork hash for breakfast not to be missed. Being situated within Fort Edmonton Park gives an interesting... More

Great stay at Hotel Selkirk. Check-in was smooth, even got the room early (much appreciated, thank you!), friendly staff in the restaurant and great food. There was fruit-flavoured water in the lobby for guests, nice touch on a hot day. There was an elevator in the hotel, but we preferred using the nice staircase to get up to our floor.... More

The sheets in the hotel were horrible. They were scratchy and stiff and bothered my husband and mines skin. You can tell they were cheap. It was also very loud during the night and we were awake for hours. It was a horrible stay and I'd never stay there again. Between the awful bed sheets and the noise it was... More

the hotel itself is about what one may expect - very low on amenities as it is a period hotel, which was just fine. It was a real treat to be at the park after hours to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The staff of both the hotel and restaurant desperately need hospitality training - they treat you as though you... More

This hotel was amazing to see. It was a very pretty hotel with a lot of character. There was lots of old charm, with the brick siding, hardwood floors and various other old time furniture. It was fun to tour the old town. With the carnival horses, the old buildings, and many other interesting old time stuff. The room it... More

If staying at the Hotel Selkirk is part of your experiencing Fort Edmonton, there is no better way to do it. If you're just looking for a place to stay, you'll want a different hotel. For us, it was almost perfect. We had a suite just above the hotel doors, therefore a fantastic view of 1905 Street and part of... More

My husband and I just spent a night at Hotel Selkirk down at Fort Edmonton Park. What a beautiful setting for a hotel-surrounded by authentic original and replicated historic buildings. You feel like you're staying in a beautiful pioneer Alberta town with the Saskatchewan river running through. The hotel itself is basic-rooms are more retro rather than original turn of... More

bed was saggy in middle, shower didn't work in the suite,toilet paper cheapest ever used, no shampoo and conditioner in room,toilet flooded and no tv! I just felt the room was put together cheap and it was no way in any way old fashioned to show the times.

We were booked here for one night during our short roadtrip to Edmonton from Calgary. I had booked this hotel because it seemed like an interesting concept, and we had wanted to visit the park anyways so the fact that the park admission was included was a nice bonus. I booked the hotel over two weeks in advance of our... More
