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

Spot on for location right in the middle high of high street. Staff very accommodating and happy to help. A good overnight stay venue for anyone. Car park just across the road once you battle the one way system. If you get a room at front of the hotel, you may experience a bit of road noise but nothing to... More

Privately owned hotel that tries very hard - and mostly pleases! The food is great - especially the cooked breakfasts. Recommended. There's a small bar, too, which has a small but good range of wines and cocktails. They have two types of rooms - "front of hotel" and "back of hotel". I've not yet experienced the back ones, but I... More

Stayed here last night for buisness in two single rooms, both rooms are very well styled and clean, presentation was great, beds very comfy too, but the walls are very thin. All night i could hear the person in the next room who was very noisy. I even woke up at 4AM and could hear him snoring through the walls... More

We made a late booking for 3 rooms for New Years Eve and having never stayed at this hotel, we were very pleasantly surprised. Rooms were lovely, breakfast huge! Nice contemporary feel about the place. All staff were very welcoming. Being in the centre of town made the location a must and far cheaper than other hotels in the town... More

The north hill hotel is a small, cute hotel. Its not big at all, and have few rooms. Downstairs you have a little reception and a restaurant, which is known to be one of the best in Colchester. Also a little sitting area with a fireplace. I booked this room for my mum and sister for when they came visiting,... More

This is our second stay here at north hill and the rooms have been finished 2 a nice standard. It's a very good and comfortable stay and staff are so accommodating. We went out for food so I can't comment on the food but breakfast is good. Back in March

We have done a few hotels in our time and we look for comfortable bed, good shower, good breakfast and friendly staff. We nearly had all, the only pieces of feedback I would give are these; be friendly! We came in from a night at a restaurant having already checked in. We were not muggers and robbers (in fact far...
