I had no choice with this accommodation, as my room for this business stopover had been booked for me. TA reviews set my alarm bells ringing, but as there was quite a range of opinion I couldn’t be sure. As I was arriving late I rang the hotel in advance, both a couple of days prior, then earlier on the... More

Having seen previous reviews I was abit concerned I had booked here. It was short norice and near to where my friends were staying so went ahead. I arrived and there was lots of parking which was good and with cctv. Staff were friendly and attentive and gave me lots of useful information. My room was in the sister hotel... More

These people are just out for your money, they don't care about you at all! Price you pay online changes at the door and unless you pay it they say get lost. Don't waste your money on this place, it's dirty, smelly and worst of all the staff are the most annoying people on earth!

This is an adequate hotel. I had a room with a bath, on the top floor. It was comfortable and secure, maybe not 5* and certainly not in terms of decor. Location is fine, it was half way between the railway station and where I was working, with a little cafe not far away to have a bacon roll.

Booked this hotel at short notice as was visiting friends in the area, so wasn't sure what to expect. Arrived by train into Colchester (main station, not Town) and walked to the hotel which was only 5 minutes away, a real plus point in my opinion. I was a bit confused as there is a sign on the side of... More

Booked a room as I had an interview at the uni and needed to be up early. Very cheap at £50, wasn't expecting a great deal as the reviews seemed to be all the same which was worrying but again it was £50, however, when I arrived signing in was very easy and I was asked if I wanted breakfast...

The hotel is undergoing extensive refurbishment and so there are some glitches to iron out. The arrangements for getting in are confusing. There is no one on reception and you have to telephone to get someone to come from somewhere at the back of the hotel, somewhat inconvenient as I was stood in the rain waiting for an answer. They...

We were charged for a double room, firstly it was dirty and the sheets were filthy too. In the morning two friends came to the hotel so we could head off to get some breakfast with them. The manager ( rude little woman) accused us of having 4 people stay in the room and charged me again. I immediately told... More

Actually the room was really well decorated and perhaps better than average but for £75 we thought we were getting breakfast but that might have been my mistake. Easy walking distance to Colchester town center , well for us anyway. Staff were very good no problem there but we found the bin in our room hadnt been emptied and I... More

My colleague and I booked a twin room for £75 which we were told would be fine to accommodate two people. When we arrived after hours, I was greeted by the porter on duty who tried to explain that my friend had not made a booking. After spotting his name on the list I pointed it out to the porter,...
