I stayed with 12 other family members for 3 nights; majority came from overseas to attend a wedding. My room was small but clean and comfortable. The shower in the newly renovated bathroom was powerful, which is the way I like it to be. Being near the high street suited my daughters who went shopping and the restaurants and pubs... More

This is a friendly bright and sympathetically renovated hotel. I remember it from many years ago and the re- invention of it is amazing. The staff were friendly and professional, the food was great. Lovely to have real poached eggs ( not bullets!!) and creamy scramble ( that didn't bounce!!). The fish dishes were also very good. Good location in... More

It's so nice to find a place where the staff seem to care so much about making you feel welcome. The food was excellent, the room was very comfortable, and the whole experience proved a delight. My partner and I would definitely return. Thanks so much!

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights while visiting Clarice House day spa (which is 10mins drive away). Just can't fault the hotel. Who would have thought such a sweet, well run oasis of calm is situated right in the centre of town off a busy road? Staff were so friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. We... More

Our room was located in the back annex and was nice and quiet ( perhaps be good to frost the lower portion of glass or put blinds up as the room is overlooked by the traffic of students for the...

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
