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

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
