The rooms are finished to a high standard with a more than reasonable price attached. And you will be set up for the day with one of the chefs full english's - can... More

Stayed here for the night of the Colchester beer festival. Very friendly staff, room wasn't huge but clean and well decorated. Breakfast included was very good quality , full English and eggs Benedict, and coffee was excellent! Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the top in Room 34, the one in the picture. It was really warm and quiet with a King Size bed and a super size shower room. We had family parties so didn't eat dinner here but the breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. There is no car... More

This hotel is lovely, clean, comfortable. It has a pleasant restaurant and the breakfast was super. The staff are kind, cheerful and helpful. It's very central. Parking is a slight problem but can be overcome. You can park in the NCP car park opposite, and the hotel pays about half. You can park for a short time outside and unload.... More

This hotel offers affordable accommodation with excellent service. The new rooms at the back are quieter - would definitely reccommend one of those. The breakfast is cooked to order and is excellent. Lovely atmosphere in this boutique property - nothing negative at all to say - highly reccommended !

I had never been to Colchester before but was visiting a friend, and needed a place to stay that was near him. After looking at a number of places I decided on this one and I'm so glad I did! Everything was top notch: the bed was super-comfortable (would love to know what mattress that was!), the room was immaculate,... More

We enjoyed a stay for New Year. It is in a good location and the parking in multi storey opposite was easy and they scan your chip for cheaper rate at checkout. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The building itself was quite cute and our room was in a little courtyard type area. Room was good, and left nice... More

My wife and two adult children spent one night at the North Hill Hotel whilst on a short holiday (two rooms were booked). Needless to say, we were impressed with every detail. The rooms, service and staff hospitality were first class. The location was also superb - very close to the high street with plenty of shops, historical places of... More
