I spent only 1 night and 2 days in this welcoming and lovely guest house. The place is nice and you feel like at home, but mostly you feel at home because of the welcome you receive from Calypso. She is the owner of the house and she is an amazing woman. You cannot find a better host. I left... More

I stayed for one night in May to attend a wedding in town. I did not believe a guest-house could be so good. My room was spotless, spacious and well equipped to modern standards. The en-suite bathroom was spotless, and the shower pressure just right. The bed was so comfortable I slept like a log and had to be called... More

I stayed here for one night with some friends while trying to find somewhere to live in the area. Calypso welcomed us upon arrival and was extremely helpful and friendly throughout the short stay, even baking us a cake especially! I had a double en-suite room and, as the title suggest, the furnishings/decor is simple (some might say minimalist) but... More

My boyfriend lives in town so I come quite often and Calypso(the owner) is always very friendly and accommodating. The B&B is a short walk into town with many things to do. I have tried other B&Bs in Colchester and nothing compares! Wifi is also included which is nice. Also, the home cooked breakfast is amazing! You really do feel... More

Calypso was so very welcoming. After a 5 hour journey, she made me feel at home and her coffee cake was just what I needed. The room was warm, spacious, clean and comfortable. There is a plentiful supply of tea, coffee and milk in the rooms and the breakfast was very good (the bacon is excellent!) Location wise, it is... More

Stayed on a number of occassions whilst on business over the last couple of months. Having stopped in B&Bs and lower budget hotels in and around Colchester - Four Sevens Guest House stands out above all. Location is quiet and safe with plenty of parking but still close to the town; rooms are clean, spacious and perfectly acquited; the Broadband... More

I'm staying here for two nights whilst working away from home. The host, Calypso, is one of the most welcoming people I have ever met. Breakfast is fantastic, the rooms are absolutely delightful and nothing seems to be too much trouble. I would recommend this B & B to anyone who needs to stay in Colchester. The room rates are...

We have been in this b&b for about 1 month. Our stay was much comfortable, it was as if we were at home. Calypso's breakfast is quite delightful, she tries to serve everything matches her guests' tastes. It is nice to spend time talking with her. She is pleased to provide any suggestion regarding shops, restaurants and pubs in Colchester.... More

I stayed for 3 nights at this guest house and was impressed. Calypso is most welcoming and makes you feel as if you've known her for years. The house and rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. As for breakfast well the table is set for a feast, you will definitely not leave the building hungry! Highly recommended.

We felt welcome from the minute we checked into this Bed and Breakfast...Calypso the owner made us welcome, rooms clean, breakfast great and made to order, always homemade cakes for tea. They helped us find our way around the town, recommended restaurants and generally where very kind and helpful. I would stay again anytime.
