We stayed in this hotel whilst attending a Peterborough United away game 4 years ago when the hotel had just opened, we enjoyed it very much? We repeated this again this weekend, the hotel has expanded with a nice glazed courtyard and function room whilst a new wing is under construction. The owners and staff are superb nothing is to...

I stayed here for 1 night in July of 2014. The hotel is very close to the town centre, and as such there are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel itself and the room seemed nice and clean, the bathroom was fine and the bed was fairly comfortable. However, the room was rather small and it... More

I always stay here for business. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable. The food is outstanding. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner there. Will always stay here when in the area. If prone to noise, ask for a back room away from the high street

Situated very close to the town centre, about a mile from the mainline station, this lovely small independent hotel is exactly the kind of place I like when I want to feel noticed - by which I mean, not another anonymous face in a budget hotel. The staff were all young, friendly and very well trained. The room was small,... More

Whilst taking a day trip to Colchester, we chanced upon this hotel and decided to take a meal there. The staff were very welcoming from the outset and the lunch offered might well be described as gourmet food. The selection was not extensive but the food was beautifully presented and cooked par excellence. The waitress was chatty and very amiable... More

Really lovely little hotel, I stayed 3 nights whilst doing some training in Colchester. The staff were delightful, they remembered what I had a breakfast and were always welcoming in the evenings when I returned. Breakfast was really yummy, they used local fresh produce. The room I stayed in was a single, small but suited my needs exactly and very... More

A business stay in June was made tougher the moment I arrived being sent lugging a case up a narrow flight of stairs (there's no lift) only to find the room was not made up. Retrace steps to be allocated another room then back up again. By the time my case and I were in the room there was hardly... More

Really sorry to hear of your experience, as you can see it is a rare thing for us to get any negative feedback. We made a big mistake sending you to an unmade room and there is no excuse for that we've found out why and have sorted that out not to happen again. I think you were here when... More

Had an overnight stay whilst visiting Colchester on business. The hotel has a very friendly feel, and was very welcoming. My room was superb, extremely comfortable. No problems regarding noise as mentioned by other reviewers. I had an evening meal at the hotel, which was very good. Breakfast was lovely, though when I ordered the greek yoghurt with fruit compote,... More

I recently stayed at the North Hill Hotel whilst on business in Colchester and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The hotel is well located and the staff are really friendly. My room was rather small and front facing so was a bit cramped and noisy but the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom well equipped and as I was on... More

I stayed three nights at the North Hill Hotel and very much enjoyed my time there. I asked for a quiet room as the hotel is on a main road, and was allocated a very nice room at the back away from the traffic noise. The room was scrupulously clean and well-appointed, with a lovely comfortable bed. Bathroom immaculate. Breakfast... More
