Selwyn Sunningdale

The optimal warmth and hospitality

Selwyn Sunningdale rest home

Formerly owned by Hamilton RSA Veterans Home Trust and set amidst a large established garden and grounds, the Village comprises a 33-bed hospital and rest home, together with eight rental units.  It provides care services and retirement accommodation for mainly ex-service men and women and their dependents, although welcomes residents from non-service backgrounds.  Short-term care can be arranged on an individual basis, as required.
