My visit was just a single night for a business trip so I didn't experience all the hotel has to offer but what I did see was fine. I don't know Colchester but the location seemed convenient for the town centre and most amenities. I was in a small, en suite on the 2nd floor. The room and bathroom were... More

Having regularly stayed at the North Hill hotel on business over the past 18 months I am not sure why it has taken me so long to write a review; I think it is because I fear that whatever I write won't do justice to this perfect place!! From the professional and friendly staff who can't do enough for you,... More

We had a hideous journey to get here and consequently it was after 9.30 in the evening before we entered the hotel. Tired and hungry we thought a takeaway was going to be are only option. The guy on the desk was amazing,he had asked the chef to stay on,we were able to choose from the whole menu,given a much... More

I stayed here for one night and found the staff were very good. The food was great and the room clean and comfortable. I was on foot so I am not sure about parking availability. The decor of the hotel is modern and contemporary and the location is very central to the town.

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night (19/3/15) in the suite on the top floor. The room was lovely. It was very spacious with a nice lounge area. The bathroom is huge. I'm quite picky about a shower but this one was great. Loved the unusual beams in the bedroom too. We didn't have our evening meal in the... More

Well located for a visit to the theatre. We only stayed one night in a standard room which was sufficient for our use. The room was clean and comfortable with a good size bathroom. We did not eat in but would have done had we not made prior arrangements.The menu looked very tempting all freshly prepared if the breakfast was... More

In general, a good hotel. We greatly enjoyed the feel of the hotel, a nice character to it. The bed was comfy, the room was small but practical. Two sticking points - the walls were extremely thin, with a lot of noise coming up from the restaurant below until 1am. The other was in the morning when the maid knocked... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights 5/6th March with my sister. Although we arrived quite late in the evening, we were still greeted with a friendly and welcoming face! We were checked in quickly and shown to our room. We had one of the newly renovated rooms out the back, and the room was lovely! No noise and... More

First impression on entering our room was the terrible state of the throws and matching cushions on the beds. They had huge pulled threads, were extremely worn and tatty. Should have been in the bin a long long time ago. Shame, as it completely spoilt the look of an otherwise attractive room. We asked for a room at the rear... More
